Personal Cloud Tonido Brings Secure, Private, Automatic Photo Backups to Android Phones

Secure storage software brings unlimited, hack proof, automatic backup of photos and videos to Android Phones/Tablets

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 17, 2014 — CodeLathe, the leader in personal cloud products, has launched a major app release that will allow users to automatically backup their photos and videos from Android Phones/Tablets to their computers running Tonido Personal Cloud software. This new feature is offered completely free to customers and there is no storage limits or subscription fees.

The self-hosted, personal cloud solution allows users to view documents, play music, browse photos, watch videos and share files without storing it in public online services. Individuals begin by downloading the free Tonido server app on their desktop and the free mobile app onto their Android device. The app safely connects users to the documents stored on their desktop in seconds. Users can access their files via Wi-Fi or 3G mobile networks and automatically backup their photos and videos from Android to their Tonido personal cloud.

“Time and time again, popular public cloud online services are proving that they are not safe for storing private photos or documents. The recent celebrity photo hack is an ample proof to that effect.  With Tonido, now users have an alternative choice to public online services. Tonido can provide unlimited photo upload functionality that is order of magnitude more secure than public cloud services” said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO of Codelathe.

Tonido Personal cloud is built from scratch for secure access and private sharing.  Tonido’s distributed architecture, anonymous user name policy and not storing password in servers makes Tonido more secure than public online services.

“One of the most used feature of public cloud services like Dropbox; Google Drive; Apple iCloud etc is the ability to automatically backup photos of the mobile devices without user intervention. With the latest Tonido Android App and Tonido server you can now get this feature in your very own private cloud. No more storage limits, No more security concerns” said Anis Abdul, CTO of CodeLathe.

    Yes, this is exactly what I’ve been waiting for! I have WAY to many photos on my phone and on my tablets. Moving this off so they are secured has always been a back-burner chore I never got around to. Now, even if I’m traveling to different continents, I’ll be able to back up my photos to my own personal cloud server, located in a safe location, secure from hackers and governments alike.

    Thanks, Tonido, and all the good people at CodeLathe!
