For the past year or so, I've used the MEGA cloud service, and I'm not inclined to renew my subscription.
I have shifted my opinion for a variety of reasons. How much information are they most keen to collect? Let's start there.
They ask for your name when you join up for their services, which is acceptable but I don't really enjoy it as a cloud-only customer.
However, suppose they do this for their messaging feature. Two years ago, they added "calling" and "messaging" capabilities alongside their cloud services. Both functions use the same data architecture and undoubtedly interact with one another. Increasing legal and illegal vulnerabilities, in my opinion, is a result of this.
They stray from the services that their customers were paying for, which means that a small portion of our payments are made inadvertently to cover the costs of their "messaging" and "calling" capabilities. As a result, they have improved their referral program. A portion is given to anyone who invites their "Contacts." after which you can safely talk with your friends.
Additionally, a date of birth data need is optional. to what end? I'm not sure, at all. But based on my investigation, they reportedly collect a lot of metadata from customers who have chosen to use their cloud-only services.
For my part, I prefer to support businesses that don't easily stray from their objective in order to increase money. In my opinion, those who focus only on a single objective are more dependable, sincere, and secure.
I'm looking to use Filen for my cloud needs.**
