Surely it would be easier to just give us the option to bypass the warning rather than jump through hoops?

Also, will I have to go through this every time? I have a few more projects to post and being able to download zip files is important.

Joe:

Upwork is not a file transfer tool, and has never claimed to be.

 

Stop using Upwork to transfer files like this.

 

Use other options, such a:

email

Dropbox

FTP

USB flashdrive

WeTransfer

Google Drive

Microsoft One Drive

Droplr

Assumed everything had to be kept within Upwork. My apologies!

But it is a good idea to keep a record of any off-site transactions and conversations.

Upwork has no rules about how you transfer files or how freelancers communicate with clients.
