We believe, the control over your private data should be fully in your own hands. Especially, when it comes to communicating with your loved ones you shouldn’t have to rely on the efforts of messaging apps and cloud provider to protect your data somehow. Communication needs to be as safe as possible but also easy to use and 100% transparent. That is why we combine the best features of messaging apps and cloud storage and make SENGI open-source. Everyone can contribute and double check our code.
YOUR CHANCE TO REGAIN CONTROL OF YOUR DIGITAL IDENTITY
WHAT ABOUT MY IDENTITY?
Imagine you want to store your personal data in a cloud. By doing so, you could face several issues
- storage space is limited, you need to use more than one provider and lose track of all your accounts
- lack of transparency what actually happens to your data
- you don’t want anyone to get access to your data, it should always be private
THIS IS WHERE SENGI COMES INTO PLAY
How would you like
- to combine all your available clouds in one simple interface and add up all the storage space?
- to make your data inaccessible for truly anyone but you and the people you send them to, by splitting your files into fragments and distributing them among all your clouds?
COMMUNICATION IS MORE THAN SAFE STORAGE
We are convinced that communication has to be free, secure and anonymous. We couldn’t find a solution delivering all those requirements. This is why we created SENGI.
A combination of the best features from messaging apps and cloud storage. Sharing, messaging and backing up your data is now simpler than ever before. Focused on an easy, yet exciting user experience SENGI is here to impress you!
We created a foundation for a new Standard of security, transparency and usability and combined it into an all-in-one solution with no compromises.
THE MAIN BENEFITS
SECURITY – NEXT LEVEL DISTRIBUTION
SENGI is the place to link all your existing cloud services. After your data is encrypted with AES256, it is split into tiny chunks and distributed to all cloud services you use. So for the cloud provider and anyone else your data is just a random collection of unreadable data chunks.
TRANSPARENCY – ZERO-KNOWLEDGE-PRIVACY
Thanks to our strict data policy not even we know what you store where. Only you have the key. However, we play with an open hand with our open source code. We will release the code on GitHub for your inspection and participation.
USABILITY – EVEN FOR YOUR GRANDMOTHER
SENGI’s easy-to-use-interface and the connection between cloud services and messaging apps puts supreme usability in your hands. You can share all files in your cloud without stressing your data plan. Even your grandmother will find SENGI easy as pie.
COMMUNITY – THE GREATEST FEATURE
We encourage you and everyone else to work with us on our source code or other parts of the project, because together we can achieve more. Help us to improve SENGI. Help us making the world a better place. Help us making the internet great again. For you, your friends and everyone else! Possible community projects can be:
· Translation of the software into different languages
· Feedback for new features
· Inspecting the source code on GitHub and giving suggestions
Be safe everywhere you go and download the FREE SENGI app soon
WHAT CAN WE DO FOR EACH OTHER?
If we reach the funding goal, we will add a developer to the SENGI family. As a result, we will be able to release the open beta this year and implement new features.
WHERE THE FUNDS GO
BUT WE CAN DO EVEN MORE, IT IS ALL UP TO YOU
with $70.000 we can add
- Development for Linux – now, every platform is protected
- Chatbots – making your digital life even easier
- Research and development of peer-to-peer video & audio communication – best possible quality without the use of any servers. So you can be sure, only you and the people you are talking to are in the conversation.
THE CLOUD IS THE LIMIT?
Nope, you should never feel limited using the cloud!
With $100.000 we can add another developer and

You don’t necessarily need to open your wallet to support us. Tell your friends about SENGI and spread the word on your social networks. SENGI will be happy and you will help us a great deal.
Can I use my existing cloud-accounts with SENGI?
Absolutely. You can link all your existing accounts or simply add new ones. However, the data on your existing accounts must be re-uploaded to guarantee full security.
What happens if a cloud provider goes offline, will my data be lost?
No. Thanks to redundant data storage and depending on the number of connected clouds SENGI can compensate the outage of at least one provider.
How much do I have to pay for SENGI?
SENGI is free. Every user can create a free account and use SENGI as long as he or she wants. There will be premium features but the security on your communication will never be limited.
Is SENGI not just another cloud provider?
Nope. SENGI merely uses the cloud structure for creating a secure communication and data storage eco-system.
Isn’t open-source a danger to my data?
You probably know exactly how the six sides of a dice look and how rolling it works. However, you will not be able to say for sure what will be rolled next. You can imagine open-source encryption as a billion-sided dice – super secure.
If I lose my laptop, can I recover my data with SENGI?
Yes. If you have your password in mind and you saved your key-file somewhere you can login from any other device. If you already installed SENGI on multiple devices, your data is automatically synchronized.
When will you release?
There will be a closed beta for our backers this year. We expect the open beta to be released in the beginning of next year.
When will the perks be shipped?
Everything we ship is freshly made for you, so we need a little time. However, your perks should be ready until December and shipped before Christmas, ready to be put under the tree.
What platforms are supported?
Windows, Windows Phone, OSX/MacOS, iOS, Android and soon Linux.
Why all the fuzz about backdoors?
To lock your door is pointless if another key exists, that can open all doors. That key could get into the wrong hands and make your home as secure as without having a lock at all. We agree with Tim Cook saying: “The only way to get information […] would be to write a piece of software that we view as sort of the equivalent of cancer.”
What is a Sengi?
A Sengi is a tiny mammal, living in the rainforests of Africa. It distributes its food in a vast network of trails and stashes. Because only Sengi knows its network very well, it is protected from predators and food thieves, much like you are protected from data thieves with SENGI.
Despite its looks, it is more related to an elephant than to mice or rats.
