About pCloud File Request

File request, as its name implies, is to request files from others. The pCloud file request enables other persons to upload files using a link that you send to them. Anyone can upload files to the target folder in pCloud, whether they have a pCloud account or not. These files will appear in a folder you choose in your pCloud account.

Besides, others can only upload files; they cannot see the content of the folder, edit, delete, or download files, or even see who else has uploaded files. In other words, the file request can be an easy way to receive large files from others. Anyone who has access to a file request can upload files to your pCloud account, without gaining access to other contents inside. Convenience, flexibility as well and security are assured for both inviters and receivers.
