What is MEGA?

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.

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.” *

"A secure way to store data in cloud storage"


What do you like about MEGA?

What I appreciate is the service's devotion to security, from data transferring, to data storage. And all the privacy and security settings, that can cover mostly every customers' necessities, from the family to the Corporate Company.

What do you dislike about MEGA?

Honestly, simply nothing. It's a service that I try to share with people around me, to create a "solid and secure" network around me: I can secure everything about my life, but it's up to also people with whom I share my data too.

What have you been using it for and what problems did MEGA solve?

Yes, they helped me with good replays via email. And Development Team is very active on Github (yes, they have an open-source approach to all their clients. This is a MUST in terms of security.

"Happy to have 16TB cloud back-ups :)"


What do you like about MEGA?

In overall MEGA has no competitors. Great design, great usability.
I do not know what to say else. My subscription is best answer, I think - I am 'voting' for you with my money every month :)

What do you dislike about MEGA?

Would be nice to implement feature to hide some folders from shared folder or at least to protect them with a password.

For example. I have folder 'Alex' and inside 5 folders - '1', '2', '3', '4' and '5'. I want to share root folder 'Alex', but hide folder '5' from person with whom I shared it.
You'll ask - why can't simply share 4 nested folders? That's because other person wants to see 1 root folder, instead of 4 nested, as it is more usable to have 5-10 links to incoming shares instead of dozens.

What have you been using it for and what problems did MEGA solve?

I use for my personal archives synchronized back-ups - photos, music, other personal valuable stuff.
