Is MEGA OK for WordPress backup?

Backing up WordPress probably is the best thing you can do for your website, which will save you when your site gets hacked or you accidentally lock yourself out. Part of people choose to make a WordPress backup to MEGA.co.nz because it offers 50GB of free online data storage, whose free capacity is much more than some other cloud drives such as Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.

Well, MEGA was created to help curb the privacy issues other cloud storage seem to be subject to. While end-to-end data encryption is a great incentive to choose MEGA. That free 50GB should certainly be your second reason.
