About

Prelude

We collectively take over a trillion photos every year.

These pictures speak a thousand words.

Our story

ente was born out of a need for a private storage solution for personal photos and videos.

There was nothing out there that ticked all the boxes, so we started building one.

The present

We have open source apps across platforms that securely encrypt and backup all your memories.

They are preserved at multiple storage locations, and only you can decrypt them.

Our architecture has been reviewed by cryptographers and engineers from IBM Research, ETH Zurich, IIT Delhi, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, ...

We are self-funded.

The future

We will continue on our mission to build the best photos app ever.
