About Pastelink

Our Mission

Our mission at Pastelink is 2-fold. 1. To help make file sharing quicker, easier, and more accessible to individuals regardless of age or skill level. 2. A percentage of everything we make will go towards supporting survivors of human trafficking, the modern day slave trade.


These days there are piles of wonderful apps sprouting on our phones, tablets, and computers. But how accessible are these for the non tech savvy person? Remember when you tried to teach your parents how to text? Or maybe you have a DVR but have no idea how to get 'How I Met Your Mother' episodes onto it. We believe file sharing should be free and simple for all human beings. Whether you are a kid, a businessman, a teacher, a grandparent, or stay at home parent, Pastelink was created for you. Pastelink is the fastest way to share files. Period. Drag & Drop a file from anywhere on your computer or device and get a link to share with anyone, anytime.

Keep it Clean!

Have you ever done a Google images search and a whole bunch of useless and irrelevant photos show up? Maybe some things your parents wouldn't approve of? There are gabillions of megabytes of junk all over the internet. We don't think data is useless however too much can be well…too much. Pastelink believes in a cleaner internet for the future. The information age has come and we are fortunate enough to have access to anything and everything, however, so much of this information has become outdated, inaccurate and often times deemed useless. Files uploaded to Pastelink are stored for 7 days for this exact purpose. We want to offer all humans an awesome service while keeping our footprint small. Less servers, less electricity, less data floating around the internet. They'll thank us in 20 years.

Traffic Files, Not People

We are thankful for our opportunities, but we believe social and economic prosperity is useless unless it makes a difference in the lives of those who do not have such opportunities. Pastelink has strategically formed partnerships with several non-profit groups who carefully care for survivors of trafficking, maintain places of safety, education, rehabilitation, and sustainability through proven programs. Our goal is to give you the easiest file sharing site, and help end a terrible injustice.
