In 2013, Mega pioneered user-controlled end-to-end encryption through the web browser. Today, it provides the same zero-knowledge privacy and security for its cloud storage and chat applications, whether through a web browser, mobile app, desktop app or command line tool. Mega The Privacy Company provides Privacy by Design based on the uncompromising use of zero-knowledge user-controlled end-to-end encryption. All chat messages and files are fully encrypted on the user’s device before being sent to Mega, using random keys that are encrypted with the user’s password before the chats and files get stored on Mega. The password remains on the user’s device and is never sent to Mega, so chats and file contents can’t be read or accessed in any manner by Mega. Files can only be decrypted by the original uploader through a logged-in account or by other parties to whom the account holder has consciously provided the required file/folder keys. The privacy provided by Mega is a valued service, necessary for personal, professional, business and government use. It is consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 12: “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence […]. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference […].
