About Dropbox

Dropbox is hosting service that allows users to create special folders on their computers, which are then synchronized, accessing the same folder, regardless of which computer is used to view it.
Anything users add to Dropbox will automatically show up on all their computers, phones and even the Dropbox website — so they can instantly access it from any location.
It also makes sharing and collaboration easier, by inviting other users to any folder in Dropbox.

About Sync.com

Sync.com is a cloud service that makes it easy for users to access and share their files from virtually any computer, phone or mobile device - without giving up their right to privacy.

Once a user has created an account and installed the app, files and folders added to Sync get backed up to the cloud and instantly synced to all their connected devices. Users can also share their files and folders, making Sync perfect for collaborating with teams or sharing files with clients and customers.

Most importantly, Sync has been designed from the ground up to protect user privacy. Sync's unique cloud storage platform and apps have end-to-end encryption built-in, which protects files added to Sync from unauthorized access. Additionally, Sync does not collect or sell user data or usage information to advertisers or other third-parties. This makes Sync an ideal solution for storing and sharing confidential files and sensitive data.

About MEGA

MEGA - private, trusted and secure cloud storage and collaboration platform

Anyone could be forgiven for thinking that all cloud storage services are the same, and all that separates different cloud storage providers are simple features and price differences. But this is not the case. MEGA understands the importance of keeping data and conversations private while providing a fantastic user experience that does not impact a user’s right to privacy.

Launched in 2013, MEGA is the world’s first easily accessible zero-knowledge cloud storage provider to deliver user-controlled end-to-end encryption. Our product design is governed by the principle of not letting our no-compromise end-to-end encryption get in the way of usability.

Today, MEGA is the world’s largest privacy-focused cloud storage and chat provider with over 220 million registered users globally. Users upload over 65 million encrypted files a day. With MEGA, they are in control of who can see, access and share their data. MEGA can be used from all major devices and platforms from anywhere with the Internet.

Zero-Knowledge

Zero-knowledge means that not even MEGA can access your files, and only each user holds the key to unlock their content. We also offer the ability for users to verify the credentials of contacts when sharing files, using cryptographic fingerprint technology, ensuring they are authentic before gaining access to your content.

Generous and Easy to Use

People need to send and store a lot of files, and a cloud provider should accommodate this! Our generous 20 GB free offering will help users get started, and when you need more, our competitive paid plans will support you with up to 16 TB for individuals or unlimited for businesses. We’ve got you covered, without breaking the bank.
Using MEGA, your friends, colleagues and customers can download shared files without the need to sign up, and they’ll still benefit from our super-fast transfer speeds.

MEGAchat

Audio and video calling with messaging come with every MEGA cloud storage account. But unlike some other video calling providers, you can rest easy knowing your conversations are fully secure thanks to MEGA’s user-controlled end-to-end encryption. Available on desktop and mobile.

*“I’ve been using MEGA for years as a fast and reliable way to transfer large volumes of data in a private and secure fashion.” *
