Keep in mind that Mega may be secure, but it does not protect your anonymity. It does collect information about you, including your IP address, and its terms state:
If we think it is necessary or we have to by law in any jurisdiction then we are entitled to give your information to the authorities.
We reserve the right to assist any law enforcement agency with investigations, including and limited to by way of disclosure of information to them or their agents. We also reserve the right to comply with any legal processes, including but not limited to subpoenas, search warrents (sic) and court orders.
This is an open thread, all topics welcome.
