Steam Starts Removing Links from Mega in Fight Against Piracy

Steam has more than 150 million users and the chat service is used daily by gamers to get in touch with their friends. In addition, its forums are actively used and many users place links to cloud services to share images, videos, and files.

MEGA links have been replaced by a {LINK REMOVED} text in both private messages and forums. Instead of seeing the link in their messages, the recipients got a {LINK REMOVED} text in their place.

"Potentially Malicious"

MEGA, a New Zealand-based company, started in 2013 and offers coded data storage for all its users. The company has always ensured that user data is free of malware and now provides access to 40 billion encrypted files placed by 100 million registered users.

Steam does not allow any malicious and unregulated websites such as Piratebay and 4shared. Unlike these two, game-oriented websites such as Metjm and Cheathappens are also censored in forums and chats.

Chairman & # 39; s Statement

MEGA & # 39; s Chairman, Stephen Hall says the company sells malicious content and actively removes such links before they are shared.

It's crazy for sites to block Mega links, because we respond very quickly to eliminate links that are reported as malware, in general, much faster than our competitors.

MEGA is known for offering good storage capacity for cheap and is much faster than most cloud services. Steam censor because it's malicious & # 39; was rather strange and raised many eyebrows.

Note: According to TorrentFreak, Steam has lifted the ban for now and allowed links from both forums and personal chats.
