In the title compound, C16H11F4N3S, the dihedral angles between the thiadiazole ring and the difluorobenzyl rings are 81.95 (7) and 81.96 (7)°, whereas the dihedral angle between the difluorobenzyl rings is 11.41 (7)°. In the crystal structure, C-HN and C-HF interactions link the molecules into two-dimensional arrays parallel to the bc plane.
