megareg: Register new account


megareg - Register new account


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


Registers new account. Registration is split into two steps:


--register: Creates a new non-verified account


--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 API calls

fs: Dump filesystem (may require --reload to actually print something)

cache: Dump cache contents

First create an non-verified account:

$ megareg --register --email your [at] --name "Your Name" --password "Your Password"

Registration email was sent to test [at] 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!
