Govt bans WeTransfer website in India

New Delhi:  File transfer website WeTransfer has been banned in India by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT), citing national interest and public interest for the ban.

The DoT, in its order on May 18, directed telecom operators and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to ban three website Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), one of which is the WeTransfer website. The other two URLs that have been banned are also specific pages of WeTransfer, reported Mumbai Mirror. It is unknown what these two links contained and why the entire website has been banned.

We tried accessing WeTransfer on both mobile and desktop, but got a message “The site can’t be reached.” WeTransfer website from neitherlands is very popular for fast transfer of documents among users.

The ban on WeTransfer comes during the time when several companies and educational institutes are working from home and are using file transfer services to exchange large-sized documents and data during the coronavirus pandemic.
