MEGA is the improved version of MegaUpload, a file hosting service created by computer scientist Kim Dotcom in 2005. MEGA’s main advance is that, when uploading the file or folder, the information is fully encrypted using the RSA encryption system 2048 bits, which is only controlled by the user at their sole discretion.
It is available in multiple languages and is compatible with Windows, Linux, and MacOS operating systems. In addition, you have the option of using your application on computers, for ease of use or the application for smartphones.
