       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:

        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.

       --speed-limit <speed>
           Set maximum allowed upload and download speed in KiB/s. This option overrides config
           file settings. 0 means no limit.

       --proxy <proxy>
           Use proxy server to connect to This option overrides config file settings.
           More information can be found in libcurl documentation at
  Some acceptable values are:

           •   none : Disable proxy if it was enabled in the config file.

           •   socks5://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server

           •   socks5h://localhost:9050 : Local SOCKSv5 proxy server with DNS handled by the

       --config <path>
           Load configuration from a file

           Disable loading .megarc

       --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

           Show version information


       First create an non-verified account:

           $ megareg --register --email --name "Your Name" --password "Your Password"

           Registration email was sent to 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!
