MEGAsync - Cloud Storage And File Hosting - RECOMMENDED

Undefined

MEGAsync is a cloud storage and file hosting service offered by Mega Limited, an Auckland-based company. The service is offered primarily through web-based apps. Mega mobile apps are also available for Windows Phone, Android and iOS.

Mega is known for its security feature where all files are end-to-end encrypted locally before they are uploaded. This prevents anyone (including employees of Mega Limited) from accessing the files without knowledge of the pass key used for encryption.

The service was previously noted for a large 50 GB storage allocation for free accounts. However, this was reduced to 15 GB, with additional amounts offered only on an expiring trial basis. Up to 8 TB is available for paid accounts.

As of January 20, 2018, Mega claims to have 100 million registered users in more than 245 countries and territories, and more than 40 billion files have been uploaded to the service.

They have desktop clients for many different Linux distributions, including different versions for Debian 7,8, 9 and even a plugin for Nautilus.

NOTE: Requirements, Javascript activated, if you use NoScript, you need to whitelist Mega.

Privacy concerns: NONE, Auckland-based company.

Payment: Euro

IMPORTANT: Mega does not store its users passwords, so the company recommends you keep a secondary backup of files stored in the service, because they can't help you recover your encrypted files if you forget it. Still, this is the most secure Cloud storage you can find, because not even their own staff can access your files. Strongly recommended for non-dummies !
