Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.
Do not do anything Mega backup ask you to do. When did you install Mega backup ?
Do you need that application ?
No, you don't need that unless you want to save all your files of your Mac to cloud storage of some backup company. Do you want that ?
The main advantage is, If you subscribe to it, then it will backup all your stuffs to online and you can restore your files from that backup if anything happens to your Mac, like hard drive failure or if it is stolen. You won't lose your files.
But there are two problems with online backup. All your files on the online server and if anyone hack it, then they can access all your stuffs. Second issue is, it will constantly use your internet connection to backup the files to cloud/online server.
I'd prefer to use offline backup services like Apple's own Time Machine app which is an backup app to backup your entire Mac to an external hard drive regularly. This doesn't use internet and you can backup or restore files any time without any subscription or without paying anything. I'd always prefer offline backup.
What do you prefer ?
Then lets uninstall Mega Backup. In Finder, click on Go menu and select Applications. You will find the Mega Backup application there. Just move it to Trash. This will uninstall it.
Then you can start doing offline backup. For that you need to buy an external hard drive (a 2TB capacity). When you get the external hard drive, connect it to your Mac, then open Time Machine application from Applications folder (or from System Preferences > Time Machine). Then enable backup and this will backup your Mac regularly to that external hard drive. Refer this article --> https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201250
I also want you to download and run a scan on your Mac with Malwarebyte AntiMalware application --> https://www.malwarebytes.com/antimalware/mac/
If your Mac is affected with an adware or malware, this application will remove it.
