Upload file with drag & drop

When you want to upload something you have on your screen, just drag and drop it right to the Droplr icon in your menu bar. You can drop it directly to your workspace or to the boards if you want. The file will be uploaded to your Droplr account and a link will be copied to your clipboard, ready to share. Paste that link in an online forum, chat window, Slack or anywhere you want.

Upload file with keyboard shortcuts

Alternatively, you can upload a file using keyboard shortcuts so you can interact with Droplr without taking your hands off the keyboard. Press Option+Shift+D and select any file you wish to upload to Droplr and a link to it will be copied to your clipboard.

Share Multiple Files

You can also share a folder or multiple files with your Droplr account. Simply drag the folder or files into the Droplr icon in the menu bar. They will be compressed with a (ZIP) and uploaded to Droplr. A link will then be copied to your clipboard. Paste the link in an email, chat window, Slack, or wherever to share.

File transfer is safer and more accessible than ever before


Droplr allows you to protect files you share with password. If you want to set a password to any file, just open it in a browser and change its privacy. For more information check this article. You can also do this from your workspace. Simply select a file and set your desired privacy. If you set a drop as a private you'll be asked to set a password. Then send a link and a password to anyone whom you want to give access to that file.

Self-destruct - make your files disappear at a given time frame.

Droplr allows you to set a time of life for your files. When the time is up, it will be deleted and no longer available for anyone, even you. This is a great feature for ensuring files you share have a limited shelf-life that improve the safety of your most sensitive files. When you select one of the self-destruct options, the file you share will automatically be deleted after the designated time has passed.


In your Workspace select a drop, then click on self-destruct icon and choose your preferences. You can also set the default to self-destruct time of all drops you will create (from this point on). Just go to the Settings in your Personal Workspace.

Self-destruct feature is available for Pro and Business Droplr users only.
