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 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 aslo has uploaded files. In one word, the file request can be an easy way to receive large files from others. Anyone who has accesss to a file request can upload files in your pCloud account, without gaining acces to other contents inside. The convenience, flexibility as well as security are assured for both inviters and receivers.
