When Sending files from your Hightail account and protecting those files
with an access code, you can have at least a minimum of 1 character. It can be letters, numbers, special characters, or a combination of the three.

Enter the desired access code (make sure your recipient has this code) and click Send

Your recipient will receive an email containing a link to the file. They will be required to input this access code to view or download the file.
