In computer science, FTP stands for “File Transfer Protocol,” which is a way of transferring files between computers. A file can be anything — a spreadsheet, a word document, a song, or a picture. The acronym FTP (an acronym is a word made up of the first letters in a phrase) is often used as a verb. When someone says “Please FTP me that file,” for instance, that means “Please transfer that file from your computer to mine.” To FTP, you usually need to download a special program, or application. You also usually need a password to be able to access or send information to someone else’s computer.
