ente Auth

Free and Open source E2EE Authenticator app by the makers of ente Photos

ente Photos was born out of our own needs, as casual photographers who like to cherish memories.

Over the last year, while developing our infrastructure, we had a hard time finding a place to preserve our two-factor secrets.

Given that ente already had a platform for reliably storing and syncing data, encrypted end-to-end, we decided to leverage that to cure this itch.

Now back to building the best photos app :)
