Younity Introduces Ephemeral File Sharing: "Disappearing Ink" in the Personal Cloud

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SANTA MONICA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/13/13 -- Younity (, the "personal cloud" service that enables users to access all of their files across multiple devices, today introduced a new component to their popular cross-platform service: Ephemeral File Sharing. Currently in beta, the new function allows users to privately share their photos, music, videos and other data with friends in the personal cloud for a designated amount of time.

"We've integrated a wholly new layer of control and privacy in the personal cloud with the introduction of Ephemeral File Sharing," said CEO and Co-Founder Erik Caso. "This intuitive feature is designed to give our users complete control of how long someone can have access to their documents, photos, music or videos after they are transferred. Users can share and unshare content at any time while the recipient cannot download, edit, or re-share a file." Younity, which enables data to exist in multiple locations, either physically or virtually, without syncing, provides users with fast uploads and multiple file-sharing capabilities without the hassle of configuration. Users can access music and videos seamlessly on-demand and edit photos directly in premium quality on Younity's interface.

Furthering their mission to protect user privacy by making content disappear after a defined period, Caso added that "We're challenging the status quo by implementing digital tools that empower ephemeral media sharing. We never store nor have access to user files. The need to share sensitive files easily and readily shouldn't be inhibited by services that maintain and track your digital artifacts." Highlights of Ephemeral File Sharing include: User's control availability: current share expiration is 7 days. Private Friends List No server access to consumer metadata and no account identifiers Asynchronous-one way sharing Multiple files can be shared at once; Manual selection of multiple files within the share menu Media optimized for the recipient device Download Younity on iOS and install on desktop: About Younity Younity creates a personal cloud for all your files, built from your devices and your online services.
