Bye MEGA, Hello Filen

Filen Cloud Storage

After finding myself in yet another internet rabbit hole, I found myself moving away from MEGA cloud storage, toward Filen Cloud.

I was getting bad juju vibes regarding MEGA and privacy. They claim that they have no access to your data though...

The highest level of online security and privacy
We use zero-knowledge encryption, also known as user-controlled end-to-end encryption, to protect your data online, even when sharing. This means that only you and those you share information with have the keys to see, read, or listen to that data on MEGA.

That is direct from their site. I read it on the internet, so it must be true. I also read that you should absolutely encrypt any data you store on any cloud service. This is something I have totally neglected to do. Time to get on that 💩.

I  still use Google, Apple and my own Synology NAS server. You can never have enough backups.
