Etebase started out as the backend powering EteSync, and became standalone to help other developers build secure and privacy respecting applications.

The name Etebase comes from End-to-End (Encrypted) Base. Because Etebase is the end-to-end encrypted place for all of your data.

We strongly believe that your data is yours only, and that end-to-end encryption is the best way to ensure this remains this way. This is why we created Etebase, to make end-to-end encryption available for everyone, but making it easy to build end-to-end encrypted applications.

Who are we?

Etebase was created by Tom, aka tasn, (more info on his website) and a variety of contributors.

We are a European company with servers in Europe, and we follow the strict European privacy laws.
