How to upload files to MEGA and share them

After the dramatic end of Megaupload, its founder, Kim Dotcom, launched MEGA, in 2013, a new storage service that was designed to be more in line with the usual standards of this type of platform and to be different from the original service. MEGA offered some substantial advantages since its beginnings. For example, it offered 50 GB free just for registering, plus high-speed downloads and extra security with end-to-end encryption. Even today, you can enjoy all these features and upload files from your mobile and share them. To do this, the first thing you must do is install the official MEGA application, available for secure download from Malavida.

Then, it is necessary to create an account. Click on the Create account button.
