February 6, Last Updated: File Transfer Protocol FTP was widely used protocol to transfer files or data remotely in unencrypted format which is not secure way to communicate.
As we all know that File Transfer Protocol is not at all secure because all transmissions happens in clear text and the data can be readable by anyone during sniffing the packets on the network. So, basically FTP can be used in limited cases or on the networks that you trust.
