The time it takes to upload a large file largely depends on your available upstream bandwidth.

How Do Encrypted File and Folder Links Work?

MEGA is a zero-knowledge encrypted cloud storage service.

This means that all encryption and decryption processes are carried out by our users, on their devices, with keys that only they have access to.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Placing the Key in a Link
    • Link links are added to a URL separated by a # symbol. Their original purpose was to provide links to locations within a page; the browser would automatically scroll to the matching anchor point on the page. Since browsers do not send the link part of the URL when requesting a page, it is very useful when designing a URL format that contains information that should strictly remain on the client side, such as the key.
  2. Decrypting File Data in the Browser
    • When opening a link to a MEGA file or folder, the browser initially doesn’t fetch any file or folder data. Instead, it retrieves the decryption key from the link part of the URL later, when the key is needed to decrypt and view the relevant file and folder information. This JavaScript code is highly sensitive from a cryptographic perspective and, therefore, needs to be public, which you can review at https://github.com/meganz/webclient.
  3. Decrypting File Data for Download
    • Your browser cannot send the decryption key to the server to decrypt files on your behalf when you start downloading a file; doing so would completely undermine the concept of zero-knowledge encryption. Now, your browser fetches the encrypted data from the server, decrypts it using the relevant key (accessible only from the link part of the URL), and then writes the decrypted result to disk. Unfortunately, there is no standard method supported by all browsers to write to disk, making this step quite challenging. Chromium stands out in this regard, so we recommend using a Chromium-based browser: Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge (not the old version), Opera, Vivaldi, etc. Installing the MEGA Desktop App will also help you overcome these browser limitations when downloading files from MEGA.
  4. Opening Links in a Local App
    • MEGA links on iOS or Android will automatically open the MEGA app, and none of the browser context-related difficulties apply to local apps. Additionally, they consume significantly less memory and CPU! Therefore, we recommend installing our mobile app. Just like our browser codes, these are also cryptographically sensitive, and we publish the entire source code.

Please note that the cryptographic security of your files depends on the confidentiality of the relevant encryption keys. For the highest level of security, we recommend transferring the encryption key component of a folder or file link through a protected channel. For instance, standard email is not secure.
