Web Clipper Privacy Violation and I'm Not Happy


Recommended Posts

I recently downloaded and installed Evernote Web Clipper.

When using Google, I noticed just to the right of my search results, notes "suggestions" from within my Evernote organizer.  My personal notes were being displayed right there in the Google app, just off to the right.  Not Cool!!  I was not happy and almost terminated my Evernote account.   How do I insure that this does not happen again.  Thank you.

Go to clipper settings and turn off related results.  Nothings going to Google.  It's your stuff displaying in the browser.  You get the same if using Edge, Brave, Opera, Firefox if the option is checked.  Always good to check settings when using an App.

To make this clear: Nothing is send to Google. EN matches content in the EN database on your PC locally with the Google Search. This means it is searching for the same content where Google can‘t go: Inside of your EN account.

Nothing of this leaves your PC, it is a completely local service that makes any content in your own notes available to you that matches your current google search. And it shows only to you, not to Google.

How would you suggest I rephrase this?

The first sentence belongs to the whole paragraph. No need to reword anything, I just felt a more detailed explanation of how the miracle performed by EN works in the background would be nice to help for a better understanding.
