About this app

Ente is a simple app to automatically backup and organize your photos and videos.

If you've been looking for a privacy-friendly alternative to preserve your memories, you've come to the right place. With Ente, they are stored end-to-end encrypted (e2ee). This means that only you can view them.

We have apps across Android, iOS, web and Desktop, and your photos will seamlessly sync between all your devices in an end-to-end encrypted (e2ee) manner.

Ente also makes it simple to share your albums with your loved ones. You can either share them directly with other Ente users, end-to-end encrypted; or with publicly viewable links.

Your encrypted data is stored across multiple locations, including a fall-out shelter in Paris. We take posterity seriously and make it easy to ensure that your memories outlive you.

We are here to make the safest photos app ever, come join our journey!

Great alternative to Google Photos and others. Still has some room to grow but in top 3 of photo apps that are privacy centric. Ente is the easiest and if under 10GB, can't be beat. The other one I would recommend if non tech savvy if cryt.ee but that one does great job but also offers more functions. Pay more and more complex than just photo gallery, I recommend both, always have a backup. Nextcloud is 3rd alternate but even once configured, does not have great search functionality.

This is the Google Photos replacement for me and my family! It's still got a ways to go in terms of features, but the core is solid and it seems like the dev team is passionate about implementing features important to users. Ran into a few bugs during initial upload that the team worked with me on, but since then everything has been mostly solid and stable. Really happy with this app!

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

Hey! This is by design, so that you can free up your device space, without worrying about your backed up photos. If you'd like them gone from everywhere, please delete the photo from ente, and choose "Everywhere" from the list of options that pop up. Thank you! :)

What's new

* Quick links: Select some photos, choose "Create link" from the selection options, and, well, that's it! You'll get a end-to-end encrypted link that you can share. Quick links appear at the bottom of the share tab so that you can remove them or convert them to regular albums

* You can search for files by their names now

* Added a button on the albums tab to remove all empty albums in one go

* In Settings > General > Advanced you'll now see an option to view & manage ente's temporary storage
