Washington, Feb 18 : Online privacy advocate Kim Dotcom has will expand his new file-sharing site Mega to include secure email, chat, voice, video and mobile services.
The tech entrepreneur made the announcement Saturday via Twitter, saying the updates will arrive `in the coming years.'
This tweet, along with several others, seems to position Mega as a stronghold for Internet privacy and freedom, Mashable reports.
According to the report, Dotcom cautioned against using U. S.-based servers and email providers, calling out Gmail, iCloud and Skype, in particular, because the American government can demand access to user data.
Dotcom suggested that New Zealand, where he currently lives, could be a place where user privacy is completely protected, as well as a `safe haven' for companies competing with insecure U. S. providers. (ANI)
