MEGAREG(1) Megatools Manual MEGAREG(1)

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.
--limit-speed <speed>
Set maximum allowed upload and download speed in KiB/s. This option overrides config file settings. 0 means no limit. When using ParallelTransfers > 1, upload speed limit is applied to each transfer individually.
--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 proxy
--config <path>
Load configuration from a file

--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:
•http: Dump HTTP request/response details (can be used to debug connection/proxy issues)
•api: Dump API calls
•fs: Dump filesystem (may require --reload to actually print something)
•cache: Dump cache contents
•tman: Dump transfer manager events
