Difference between CloudMe and MediaFire


CloudMe offers cloud storage and file synchronization services. It is owned and operated by CloudMe AB, a Swedish company, and has its servers operated in Sweden. It was founded in 2012 by Daniel Arthursson.

Initially, it was named iCloud.com but had to change it since Apple acquired the domain for a reported amount of 4.5 million US Dollars.

  • CloudMe has cloud storage and sync solution that allows users to store, access, and share their stuff with one another and those who aren't using the service. Email, text messaging, Facebook, and Google are all options for sharing.

  • Files can be saved in a blue folder that syncs across all linked computers and devices.

CloudTop.com is a web desktop and cloud OS service that uses CloudMe as its internet file system. They offer 3GB of free storage for their users and can be expanded to 5TB for businesses with client-side encryption.


MediaFire is an online backup service that provides users services such as file hosting, file synchronization, and cloud storage. The company is based in Texas, United states. It was founded by Derek Labian and Tom Langridge in June 2006 and has around 43 million registered users. They are supported in almost all platforms such as Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android and Web Browser.

MediaFire offers users 10 GB of free storage and up to 100 TB of paid storage with a maximum file size limit of 20 GB. Media fire supports single use links, file sharing both private and public, screen capture, selective syncing, notifications and also audio and video streaming.

Although MediaFire has been in the market for a long time, it has never been a common choice because of its poor privacy measures. The skeletal design and incompetence with other companies that offer much more security and features has affected the company and its reputation. They do not even have a feature, a desktop client that can sync your files to a computer and does not offer any type of encryption whatsoever. But if one is looking for a basic storage space to dump their files that offers quite a good amount of free storage and a fairly good file size upload limit then Media fire is where he should go.
