FIRST IMPRESSION ON MEGA
As most other storage services, it is required to have strong email address, password and great password security features when registering the first step. Password is also the most important feature of MEGA that right from its launch, this service owns much strength with highly appreciation, you will be the only one to know your password, you can only restore through Recovery Key in case of forgetting password.
MEGA interface is quite great and easy to use right from the first time with neat and modern layout. All details on account, capacity, and bandwidth are located in account settings. The right panel provides your drives, shared folders, chat features, and in addition to a trash, settings and download / upload status icons.
Sharing the folder is a quite good feature where you can combine multiple accounts into one or share your friends with files in such folder. You can assign permissions to secure your files.
Since its launch in 2013, MEGA has been rated the deepest and strongest encryption with 2048 bit RSA technology, the encryption process is performed while transferring data from the PC to the cloud server. MEGA also does not save passwords and recovery keys.
All data stored on MEGA is encrypted. Data is only decoded when it’s located on the receiving device (ie your PC). MEGA stores your data and has never right to access your decoded data.
For all cloud storage services, the speed is always the most important factor, the speed depends on many objective and subjective factors such as data center location, connector line speed…. In general, as the largest network providers, VNPT, Viettel, and FPT have the same quite good speed in connection with MEGA.
