P2P Sharing is a web application with <mark>PWA support</mark> inspired by Apple AirDrop service. This application allows transferring files directly between devices without having to upload them to any server first. Users can send large files to multiple devices at the same time over the network fast and securely. This a user-friendly application so it’s easy to use users can manage everything easily.

Mostly all these file-sharing websites nowadays exist where these files are shared or stored on the server. This might be a <mark>privacy threat</mark> as many people during the current situation or generally will be sharing confidential documents or files using these services. Using a secure peer-to-peer connection and its Data channel huge files can be transferred without storing them on any server making it really robust and truly private as only the connected users/peers are communicating directly with no middle server use for transfers.

This means that this data is never <mark>transferred through any intermediate server but directly between the sender and recipient devices</mark>. To achieve this, the application uses a technology called WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication), which is provided natively by browsers. You can read more about WebRTC security here.
What is WebRTC?
The peer-to-peer connection and the data channels are made possible by WebRTC. WebRTC is basically a global network way to communicate and transfer data to each other. Which resembles closely to Bluetooth, NFC, and WIFI data sharing. Although using WebRTC we can achieve cross-platform support as it’s web-based.
