Why use Ente?

End-to-end encryption, durable storage and simple sharing.
We have packed these and much more into our beautiful open source apps.

01 Private

We are end-to-end encrypted. This means, we have zero knowledge of your data and only you can see your photos.

Our source code has been audited by reputed cryptographers.

02 Durable

We are an open source company designed to outlive its creators.

We use our revenue to store 3 copies of your data in 3 clouds. One of them is in an underground fallout shelter.

03 Reliable

You can reliably view, share, organize and download your data, in original quality, on all platforms.

Last, but not least, you can always talk to a [email protected].

Ente is really cool. End-to-end encrypted photo backup/sync (unlike Google Photos), truly multiplatform (unlike iCloud Photos), and fully open source (unlike both!)

Full disclosure: @symbolicsoft was involved in a cryptographic audit of Ente.

I love using this app. It's really smooth and has all the features I need, I started using ente because I wanted something secure (and usually that means you get fewer features), but that's not the case. With AI coming soon, I will probably never look back at any other photo management app. The developers are very open to feedback and respond very quickly if you have an issue.

Looked far and wide for a cloud photos app like this: zero-knowledge encryption, displays thumbnails quickly, handles “live” iPhone photos without separating them, respects HEIC format, retains original quality and EXIF metadata, allows for cross-platform syncing and family sharing. Happy to support an app that emphasizes privacy without sacrificing functionality.

Been using Ente for over a year now and this continues to be a suitable Google Photos replacement for me and my family! It's still in need of some key features (automated compressed video previews for quick viewing and being the biggest one right now) , but the core is solid and it seems like the dev team is passionate about implementing features important to their users. Really happy with this app!

Customer service from Ente is nothing short of amazing. The team replies promptly and is always courteous. I had a small issue with the app and they pushed an update in under 10 hours. The issue was completely resolved. I’ve had subscriptions with all the major E2EE storage apps and they don’t come close in any aspect.

I am really positively surprised. The app works flawlessly and makes managing pictures and videos across multiple platforms (mobile, tablet, laptop, and web) very easy. In addition, all data is end to end encrypted, which was crucial for me to start using the app. The prices are really fair and there is a great team behind Ente that is incredibly open to feature suggestions. It's a pity that I didn't come across Ente earlier. In summary, Ente is a great alternative to the big cloud providers and is not lagging behind them. At the same time, Ente makes it possible to store data securely and privately, without the hassle that normally comes with it.

Another superb app by team ente. It is a great alternative to the other photo storage apps currently available. It is a great looking app and it is easy on the eye. The functionality is top notch. It is E2EE for peace of mind. The fees are extremely competitive too. It was a little sluggish to use, but the latest update fixed that problem. Thank you! Highly recommended.

Great app for backing up photos. I love how easy it is to use and that it's more secure and private than google. It makes it really easy to manage photos and free up space on your phone knowing your photos are saved on its server.

Ente is the perfect app for anyone looking to backup and organize their photos and videos securely. With end-to-end encryption and multiple storage locations, my memories are safe and accessible from any device. I also love the option to share albums with loved ones and the ability to free up space by removing safely backed-up files. The pricing is affordable and the human support is top-notch. Highly recommend!

Interface ist sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig. Alles funktioniert aber zuverlässig. Preis ist sehr fair. Alles synchronisiert gut. Die Apps laufen auf allen Plattformen. Fotos und Videos sind alle Ende-zu-Ende verschlüsselt. Die App selber ist auch frei von Werbung und Trackern. Aktuell (Januar 2023) die beste private Alternative zu iCloud.

This is just fantastic. There are a few missing features and rough edges but the developers are very active and responsive, so they will get sorted soon. In general, it's a well designed and reliable app that solved the problem of photo backup for someone who doesn't want to make compromises on privacy. So glad it exists

After trying 3 other encrypted photo storage options, I found ente far easier to use, photos are in the correct order, and the app itself is a thing of beauty! In my experience, ente is the most complete and offers the best experience overall. Encryption never looked so good!

this is the best thing since sliced bread. On top of a very good app and a well thought out architecture you get a very friendly and super responsive team taking care of problems and feature requests. I wish I had known about this earlier.

One of the best google Photos alternative, It even has Family Plans 🤩. It also encrypts the metadata, while allowing to search through the metadata to find your photos.

It works wonders. The developers are very quick to fix bugs when present and available in support. Photos are saved in maximum quality and synchronization is fast. The cost is really low (€10/year or €1/month for 10GB), and unlike Google Photo (free, meaning it makes money by selling our data), it is completely open-source, uses E2E encryption (while Google can easily see all the photos), and has a clear and clean privacy policy.

Brilliant alternative to Google Photos, and it's encryption is top notch. Larger storage size options are really well priced too.. So glad I found this service. On a side note, one thing I'd love to see is a built in Exif cleaner option (something like Scrambled Exif). Thank you for this wonderful app, you have a very loyal customer here.

Great app, have been using for a couple of months now. The 2fa and opensource code makes it more secure than using google photos.

The best Google Photos alternative that I could find that actually respects your privacy. Absolutely love their product. While there are other privacy focused GP alternatives out there, Ente actually tries (and increasingly succeeds) to make something that is just as user friendly and feature packed.

This is probably the only, and best cloud photos option out there. Secure, private, open source, reliable, and beautiful UI. Obviously it's not perfect, it has SOME issues, but overall it's worth it!

I like ente, I have been using it instead of google photos for almost a year and I have never regret it. A few euros yearly for a privacy-respecting alternative that does what it is supposed to do smoothly and simply is a big yes from me.
