Tenta Vault keeps your sensitive data private and secure. Tenta Browser encrypts and securely stores your downloaded data, so only you have access to your private files. Your downloaded files, images, videos, and documents are only accessible after you enter your PIN, and are viewed in our private media players. You can also encrypt personal files, documents, videos, and images by moving them from your local device storage to your Tenta Vault in just two taps.
Built-in media players and readers
The only way to access and read the your encrypted files is with your unique PIN and Tenta's built-in media players. Your encrypted files can't be open or read with unprotected readers (like Kindle Reader, or your device's stock document reader). If someone gains access to your device, they won't be able to open the encrypted file without 1. Tenta Browser's private media players and readers and 2. Your unique PIN code. Your PIN is not stored on any servers, therefore no one, not even Tenta, can recover it.
Tenta Secure DNS
Tenta Secure DNS is one of the first public DNS providers to support DNS-over-TLS, which provides authenticity and privacy for your DNS queries. Additionally, we don't log queries. Instead we log a counter, or total number of queries made, so your data stays private. We're proud to offer this free to our users. Tenta Browser defaults to Tenta Secure DNS, but you can change your DNS if you like. Just tap the DNS field in the Zone Settings screen to see the dropdown menu of other DNS options, such as Google DNS, OpenNIC, OpenDNS, and Level3.
What is a DNS and how does it affect your privacy?
Domain name system (DNS) servers translate human web address that you type into the browser (the domain name) to computer language (the IP address). When you type an address into your device, it reaches out to the DNS server to find out what number (IP address) is associated with that domain name. It then connects to that IP address and brings you to the site.
DNS servers are essential for getting online, but they’re also a major security risk. That’s because attackers create websites that look like your favorite sites but aren’t actually your favorite sites. In that situation, your computer reaches out to the DNS server, the thieves intercept it and you’re redirected to a fake site that the attackers have control of. On that fake site, all of your information is now monitored — any password, for example, or online communications can be intercepted by thieves.
DNSSEC + DNS-OVER-TLS
Thankfully, there are technologies available that offer additional security to protect you against such attacks. DNSSEC (Domain Name System Security Extensions) is a suite of extensions that provide origin authentication of DNS data, authenticated denial of existence and data integrity. Basically DNSSEC verifies the site you requested is the site you're shown. However, DNSSEC does not provide privacy. Most DNS queries are sent unencrypted, making them vulnerable to attacks. That's where TLS comes in. Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a cryptographic protocol that provides security over a network. Websites use TLS to secure communication between servers and browsers. But TLS alone can't provide authenticity.
DNS-over-TLS is the union of DNS security and the TLS protocol. With DNS-over-TLS, queries are sent encrypted over TLS, and the answers are authentic. You can be assured that when you ask the DNS server What is tenta.com's IP address?, the server's answer will be correct and both your question and the DNS server's answer will be encrypted.
