At a time when laptop flexibility and performance are more important than ever, Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Book2 Pro series redefines the standards for next-level lightweight computing, offering consumers a versatile laptop that is both powerfully fast and powerfully secure. In this first installment of a three-part ‘How To’ series behind the Galaxy Book2 Pro series, Samsung Newsroom will discuss the benefits of the laptop’s safe and easy file sharing features, fit for every lifestyle.
Quick Share and Private Share for the New Galaxy Book2 Pro Series Provide Easier, Safer Ways To Share Photos, Videos and Files
Fast, Easy Sharing
Many of us count on PCs to store our most cherished memories. With the Galaxy Book2 Pro series, sharing those memories is easier and faster than ever. Using Quick Share, Galaxy Devices users can wirelessly send photos, videos, documents and more without limitations on the size or number of files.
Before you get started, make sure you have the latest Quick Share app1 installed on your Galaxy device. Once installed, open the app on the Galaxy Book2 Pro series and drag and drop the files you want to share. The Quick Share app automatically converts unsupported files into a format your friends can easily view, so you don’t have to worry about files not opening. When you’re ready to share, scan through a list of people nearby. Once you’ve selected your recipients, hit send. Quick Share will alert the recipient that you shared the files and let them download the files with just a tap.
Want to share files with people who are using non-Galaxy devices? Quick Share can also generate a QR code with a link2 where even non-Galaxy users can access your shared files.
Share With Peace of Mind at Work and School
For times when you need to share sensitive files3 like work reports or school assignments, Private Share on the Galaxy Book2 Pro series provides advanced security based on blockchain technology.
Your data belongs to you, and Private Share helps keep it that way by encrypting your files and setting strict permissions on who can view or re-share them. Private Share lets you share 20 files, totaling 100MB, with five people at a time. Send text files, photos, videos and even PDFs all with peace of mind.
To get started, open the Private Share app and carefully look over the required permissions before choosing the files you want to share. Once you’ve chosen the files, you can decide who gets access, what they can do with your files, and how long they can access them for. You can even revoke access to the files after you’ve shared them if you change your mind or decide the person no longer needs access. Private Share will then encrypt your files before you send them, so you don’t have to worry about third parties gaining access. Advanced security measures in Private Share also protect your files from being saved, screen captured or re-shared by the recipient.
As the sender, you can keep track of when your files were opened, how many days are left for access, and their expiration date.
Whether it’s funny photos with a friend or sensitive documents with a colleague, file sharing is an important part of how we communicate today. As sharing becomes more important to our work and our personal lives, we need tools that help make it easier to share while protecting our files and our privacy. Quick Share and Private Share are the preferred sharing tools from the latest Samsung Galaxy smartphones. By introducing these popular features to the Galaxy Book2 Pro series, Samsung Electronics is offering a safer and faster way to share your photos and files, giving you full control over your content and better peace of mind.
