Samsung is apparently developing on a new blockchain-based protected file transfer software called Private Share after introducing a new file-sharing service called Quick Share with the Galaxy S20-series earlier this year. According to a recent tip from SamMobile, the new app will release in January with the Galaxy S21-series.
The app will purportedly allow the sender to specify an expiration date for the shared data, which would then be automatically erased from the recipient’s device after expiration. This will enable safe file transmission between two phones using the power of the blockchain, according to reports.
Receivers will be prevented from sending the files they get to other users by yet another privacy safeguard built into the future programme. According to the source, the app might not include an anti-screenshot feature when it launches, which might allow users to capture text or photos that might be included in the message. Although we can’t say for sure right now, this might change in the future.
According to the rumour, Private Share will function very similarly to Samsung’s internal file-sharing tool for Galaxy handsets, Quick Share. In actuality, it would function exactly like other software of this type, which demands that the recipient and sender both have the app loaded on their respective smartphones. The receiving handset must consent to the request to view the file once a transfer has been launched.
There isn’t a lot more information available at this time about Private Share, but since the Galaxy S21-series is where it will debut, we won’t have to wait long to learn more. That’s because Samsung is prepared to make an unusually early announcement of its newest flagship smartphones in January 2021. We can only hope that by then, we will learn more about its impending file-sharing software.
