In this technology era, where virtually every activity is going digital, 60 out of a 100 is sure to have at least one online account, it could be whatsApp, Gmail, Instagram, you name it. All these aid efficient, secure, retrieval and easy-access of our information. Just imagine our world without a Gmail for instance; quite a number would have lost precious files such as media or contacts.
However, as good as these online accounts could be, one may wish to do away with it – yes, at some point or for some personal reasons, we sometimes want to get our online account(s) erased or even completely deleted. Some try to do this but encounter problems with navigating to the delete-my-account option.
If such problem is with your Mega account, then you are just at the right place as this article centres on how you can completely delete your Mega account with easy steps
But before diving into the crux, I see a need to give a brief say on what “Mega” is:
MEGA Encrypted Global Access is one of the largest cloud storage services in the world. This service gives a whooping 20GB free storage space for their regular users, I mean just any user. This service is rendered by MEGA Limited Company, Auckland, New Zealand.
The MEGA service was initiated on the 19th of January, 2013 ,as at the time of release it had 5 co-founders; Kim Dotcom (main founder), Mathias Ortmann, Finn Batato, and Bram van der Kolk. Unlike many other startups, MEGA renders its services in 50 distinct languages including Malaysian, Finnish, French, Afrikaans and Galician. Also, when this service was initialized, it had a very remarkable registration rate; about 100,000 registered users during the first hour! This was made known in a tweet by Kim.
This cloud storage service is end-to-end encrypted; this simply means that any of your information is so safe such that even those at MEGA Limited cannot have access to it. Also, it runs on Desktop and mobile devices; it is available on Playstore, Applestore, Windows, Linux, MacOS and Windows mobile devices.
