Request: Update note Encryption: Encrypt Entire Notes


Maur9ice

Idea

In older version of Evernote I was able to encrypt my entire note that I use to store all my various credentials that I use. But in the the last couple updates that functionality hasn't been working as expected.  My note is Largely text and maybe a link in there somewhere. I do notice that selecting one or a few of the credentials does allow the encryption to work; but obviously anyone using an Evernote in this way is not just interested in only encrypting one or a few sets of credentials(User, password, email).

Please fix and update the encryption capabilities so entire notes can be encrypted. Whether there's 1 charter, 10 characters, 100 characters or upwards of 10,000, 100,000 or 100million characters inside the note. Leaving notes like this with personal and private information exposed for anyone that might click on it or happen to see it is definitely not preferable.

When you guys there at Evernote decide to work on this please instruct your programmers to test the update by creating a note with upwards of a 100 plus dummy credentials with reasonable double or triple spacing between credentials ; select all and attempt to encrypt.

Evernote content is not (visibly) encrypted by default,  though it is protected when being synced to,  or stored on, Evernote's servers*.  The only way for a third party to 'happen' to see it would be for them to have access to your unlocked account. Nevertheless it's a really BAD idea to use Evernote for credentials of any sort.  There are any number of password manager apps that will do this far better, with more management options and even more securely.  I use Bitwarden.

Although I do use Evernote encryption in a few cases,  most of my protected content is in encrypted PDF files attached to notes.  Evernote's encryption is very basic - it's not clear whether different passwords can be created,  and editing longer notes is difficult.  Long notes are in themselves also a bad idea - a single error can lose or corrupt pages of information.  If information is saved in separate notes,  a mistake will lose only one element - not the whole document.

* If anyone else has access to the device you're using,  your unencrypted notes in the Legacy database may be locally visible

It makes no sense to place requests for future features in the section for the legacy clients, like this one.

The legacy clients are end of life, no further developments.
