The privacy-focused cloud storage service Mega has been testing a new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) version of its app for the past several months in closed beta, and now it's opening up to everyone. While still technically in beta, the app is now available for anyone to download (via Aggiornamenti Lumia) and test on Windows 10 PC and Mobile.
Much of what you would expect from a cloud storage app is here in the Mega Privacy (beta). There's a Cloud Drive section of the app that details all of your stored files, along with a Rubbish Bin that handles all of your deleted files. A separate Transfer Manager area will let you manage and monitor downloads and uploads. The app can also automatically upload photos by toggling on a dedicated option in the settings menu.
To recap, Mega is a service that strives to provide secure cloud storage by encrypting and decrypting data on your machine. Theoretically, this makes your files more secure because Mega itself doesn't have the ability to decrypt your files — only your machine and recovery key can do that.
If you want to try out the UWP beta app, you can grab it from the Windows Store now. Mega's old Windows phone app, designed for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1, is also still available should you need access to it.
