ShareIt allows you to easily share files with anybody in an easy and convenient way. Worrying about attachment size limits on emails is now a thing of the past. Just upload your file and copy and paste the generated download link into your email message, IM window, or any other medium of communication.

Question: Does the receiver have to install Shareit to accept and download the sent files?Answer:
Yes, both devices need to have the ShareIt application installed because it's using its own proprietary protocol in order to send and receive files.
This is what I've extracted from the official website:
I have SHAREit running, but others cannot connect. Why? Please make sure:
- You both have SHAREit launched and running on your devices;
- You have selected different roles, that is, one of you is a sender, and the other is a receiver;
- Both devices have their wireless radios turned on.
At the point 1, you see that ShareIt needs to be on the same devices, therefore answering your question.
