FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol and is a user-based password network protocol to transfer data across a network. TFTP stands for Trivial File Transfer Protocol and is a network protocol which does not possess any authorization processes. FTP may be retrieved anonymously, but in the number of information transferred is limited.

TFTP has no encryption process, it can only transfer files no larger than a terabyte, and it allows oversized data packets to move. Unlike TFTP, FTP servers use authentication and encryption protocols. Where access is limited, a remote FTP service can be implemented to get around the problem of restriction.

FTP and TFTP are terms that are used for networking. FTP means File Transfer Protocol. You will use this when you want to share or send some of your files from the remote computer of the network where you are connected. The FTP will make sure that there is a connection between your computer and the remote computer before the files can be sent successfully.

TFTP stands for Trivial File Transfer Protocol. This will make sure that the file transfer between the client and the server process are similar to each other. They may be similar but the main difference is security. FTP is considered to be more secure as compared to the TFTP.
