The password you entered is incorrect. Please try again.


Recommended Posts

I just created an Evernote account from my windows computer. I then downloaded the app to my iphone 11 and tried to sign in. I get the same message every time "The password is incorrect. Please try again." I've reset my password multiple times. I have no problem logging in on the computer or using the two-step authentication. Everything works fine on my PC, but the app won't accept my password.

Because I don't want to pay for an app I can't use, I am not allowed to email and get help. Evernote is useless to me if I can't use it on my phone. Has anyone else had this problem?

Hi.  I've not seen anyone else with the same issue here - just to be clear: you're using exactly the same username and password combination on the iPhone as on the PC?

Yes. The exact same. And just to make sure I've reset the password three times. No matter what I do, I can't login to the phone app. I've deleted the app and reinstalled it three times. I've powered off my phone and restarted it. I get the same message every time, "The password you entered it incorrect."

Hmmn. Sorry then - the issue seems well above my (un)pay grade.  I can only suggest you try @EvernoteHelps on Twitter to see whether they can assist.

Final suggestion - when you're logged in on Windows,  have a look at 'connected devices' - if you have more than two (plus the web app) that can cause problems...

There's only one computer and a phone using my account so there shouldn't be a problem with that. I don't use Twitter. Is there any way to contact Evernote tech support? I don't want to pay for Evernote if it doesn't work but as far as I can tell that's the only way to get help.

There's an Evernote community on Facebook - and there is a 'log in as guest' option on the help page which you could try.  If neither of those work you could look into subscribing for only one month (subscribe for a year,  pay monthly, downgrade your membership back to basic after the first payment goes out...) but AFAIK you have to subscribe to get assistance.

Did you ever find a resolution to your issue? I am having the exact same problem...

The only thing that worked was using a different password. I guess that one I tried to use was too complicated? Weirdly, when I tried a completely different, and simpler, password, I was able to login on my phone. I know it makes absolutely no sense, but that's what worked.

Did you use symbols ?

It is a known issue that the set of symbols permitted is restricted and may differ from service to service. A long(er) password without symbols is as safe.

Tried and it didn't work 😕 and yes just to mention I've already tried uninstalling, reinstalling (restarting phone between). Tried twice now. Tried removing all saved pw/logins in iPhone settings. Weird I can login to web and desktop no problems...

I had the same problem with passwords, and it was because I choose bad passwords. I've trained myself to have the same simple password everywhere that I can remember. Because of this, the scammers managed to hack several of my accounts, because the password is the same everywhere. I was really scared and then I decided to use the services https://jealouscomputers.com/strong-password-generator/, this is a password generator. For each account, I generated a separate password and remembered it. After that, there was no more hacking of my accounts. Be careful and do not be lazy to remember passwords.
