Why Create and Manage Multiple MEGA Accounts?
Nowadays, the size of the cloud drive storage space is one of the important factors that we choose as a data storage tool. At present, there are many famous cloud drives available in the market such as Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox and so on. However, the free storage space they provide is not enough.
Compared to these cloud drives, MEGA has a very important advantage because it offers 50 GB free storage space to its users, which seems to be very generous. In addition to this, MEGA concerns a lot about the privacy and security of its users. Even so, what if you run out of 50 GB of free storage space as data increases?
If you don’t want to upgrade your account, the only solution is to create multiple MEGA accounts so that you can enjoy as many 50 GB free space as you can. Besides, you can organize your files and manage your data in a better way by managing different MEGA accounts.
