Nearby Sharing Windows (GitHub)
Nearby-Sharing-Windows is an app for Android, to share (send and receive*) files and websites between your phone and a Windows 10 / 11 device using the windows built-in sharing functionality (See Project Rome).

The app does not collect any data about the user. When ever a file or url is sent to a remote PC, the name might get cached, but not saved.

Telemetry might get collected by any Microsoft component (e.g. PC). This behavior can not be controlled from within the app.
