Fully open source end-to-end encrypted photos, authenticators and more.


Ente is a service that provides a fully open source, end-to-end encrypted platform for you to store your data in the cloud without needing to trust the service provider. On top of this platform, we have built two apps so far: Ente Photos (an alternative to Apple and Google Photos) and Ente Auth (a 2FA alternative to the deprecated Authy).

This monorepo contains all our source code - the client apps (iOS / Android / F-Droid / Web / Linux / macOS / Windows) for both the products (and more planned future ones!), and the server that powers them.

Our source code and cryptography have been externally audited by Cure53 (a German cybersecurity firm, arguably the world's best), Symbolic Software (French cryptography experts) and Fallible (an Indian penetration testing firm).

Our flagship product. 3x data replication. On device machine learning. Cross platform. Private sharing. Collaborative albums. Family plans. Easy import, easier export. Background uploads. The list goes on. And of course, all of this, while being fully end-to-end encrypted.

Ente Photos is a paid service, but we offer a free trial. You can also clone this repository and choose to self host.

Ente Auth

Our labour of love. Two years ago, while building Ente Photos, we realized that there was no open source end-to-end encrypted authenticator app. We already had the building blocks, so we built one.

Ente Auth is free, and will remain free forever. If you like the service and want to give back, please check out Ente Photos or spread the word.
