Figured out how to access Mega cloud storage on Android via Roundsync (Rclone)

Hi all,

As some of you do, I use Mega cloud storage. There is no direct way to access mega cloud storage from cryptomator. On Windows 11, when I have Mega running in the system tray, Cryptomator for Windows sees and uses it.

What about Android?

There is no Cryptomator cloud support for Mega. Rclone via Roundsync on Android DOES!!

I just figured out a way to make it work successfully.

For Android there is a free client called Roundsync. It is Rclone for Android.

Rclone supports Mega!

So, all you need to do is install and configure a remote for your Mega account in Roundsync.

Then, Cryptomator, when you choose “Open from”, Roundsync will appear as one of your choices. Then you select the remote that you just created for your Mega account and then you will see your Mega files/folders and can create or access a Cryptomator vault.

You can download Roundsync for Android from Github-Roundsync.

Let me know if you need further explanation or some screenshots from my phone configuration.


Additional information:

Roundsync for Android supports many cloud providers, so, if you can’t find the one you need inside Cryptomator directly, chances are it’s supported in Roundsync.

Rclone runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux, It supports over 40 cloud providers, and it’s open-source!!

This way you can use cryptomator to encrypt and protect your data pretty much anywhere you store it.
