megareg — Register new Mega.nz account


megareg [--scripted] --register --email <email> --name <realname> --password <password>
megareg [--scripted] --verify <state> <link>


Registers new Mega.nz account. Registration is split into two steps:

1. --register: Creates a new non-verified account

2. --verify: Verifies account with the link that was sent to <email>

See example of registration below.


Create new non-verified account.
--verify <state> <link>
Verify account previously created by megareg --register. You need to pass <state> that was returned from megareg --register and a verification link from the email that was sent to <email>.
--email <email>
Email serves as your new account username, that you’ll be using to sign in.

NOTES: Beware that ATM, email format is not validated by megatools.
--name <realname>
Your real (or fake) name.
--password <password>
Plaintext password. No strength checking is done, so make sure you pick a strong password yourself.
After registration, print the command that can be used to finish the registration in a format suitable for scripting purposes.
--debug [<options>]
Enable debugging of various aspects of the megatools operation. You may enable multiple debugging options separated by commas. (eg. --debug api,fs)

Available options are:

· api: Dump Mega.nz API calls

· fs: Dump Mega.nz filesystem (may require --reload to actually print something)

· cache: Dump cache contents
Show version information


First create an non-verified account:

$ megareg --register --email your@email.com --name "Your Name" --password "Your Password"

Registration email was sent to test@megous.com. To complete registration, you must run:

  megareg --verify vbFFFv7AFM25etzkFXLs9A==:Z7FFbgAAAAAAAAAArL33eA==:inEONh3tmwY @LINK@

(Where @LINK@ is registration link from the 'MEGA Signup' email)

Now wait for a verification mail and run the command as asked:

$ megareg --verify vbFFFv7AFM25etzkFXLs9A==:Z7FFbgAAAAAAAAAArL33eA==:inEONh3tmwY \

Account registered successfully!
