Internxt provides cloud storage service to individuals and businesses/teams for storing data with uncompromising privacy and security. The zero-knowledge feature has been designed keeping user security in mind. Unlike other cloud storage providers, Internxt does not ask for permission to access your files, photos, etc when you start using it. Thus, your data is kept absolutely private and no third party can use it for commercial or research purposes.

Security

Internxt has high-level security as it offers decentralized storage and zero-knowledge file encryption. The files are fragmented and saved in different servers so no one can ever access your files. Your files are encrypted the moment you save them on Internxt. The encrypted shards are uploaded on servers all over the world, and files are never stored in a single server at any time. This makes the Internxt system is robust, private, and secure.

The AES-256 CTR model of encryption ensures that only the user, i.e. you hold the decryption key for your data. As we mentioned earlier, hackers would not be able to get access to your data if Internxt was hacked.

How about the Interface?
