Android v10.17 camera widget logon?

Recommended Posts

Just checking in to see if anyone has run into this or has a workaround. This behavior is different than previous versions.

I use 2 widgets for EN - one opens a blank note for me to quickly save something & the other opens the camera to allow me take a quick picture

The issue is with the camera widget in that it requires a logon at each use & this is new behavior. The note widget does not do this

I just want to take a quick pic with the widget as before if anyone has any tips - thanks

Sorry, don't you hate it when you have an issue and someone else comes along and says it works just fine for me... :( Sadly, for you, the camera widget does exactly what you would want. Snaps the photo and I click save and into Evernote it goes.

I have found, once or twice, that Android app updates can 'break' things.  I would suggest, if you haven't already done so, to uninstall the app and then reinstall. That has fixed minor issues like this for me previously.

It's a brand new phone where EN was just installed, but I have since noticed that it behaves as expected (and like the Note widget) when I turn off the passcode

Still, I do not want to do that as I have always used a passcode or biometrics - this is not the way it has worked in the past

Do you keep your Android EN locked?

Even if it is on the iPhone, it is practically the same client.

No, I see no sense at all to add another layer of locking things up to my EN app. My phone is a personal device, locking up after a short while, ready to be wiped if stolen, encrypted. It is not shared with other people. Where should be the need to lock the EN account on a locked device ?

For passwords I use a dedicated password manager - this IS locked with its own password and FaceID.

That would do it. There are a number of functions that, probably, rightly require a login when you have passcode enabled. I don't so don't have this challenge. I reckon my device security should be sufficient. YMMV
