Can’t delete encryption passphrase

Recommended Posts

Hello, on windows 10, with the most recent version of Evernote, I will create an encrypted text, then I will tell Evernote to un-encrypt that note permanently, then I try to encrypt another note and it will automatically default to the passphrase that I used to the previous encryption. I want to be able to have a different password for every encryption and Evernote is not letting me do that.

Also, I have tried logging out of the Evernote and then logging back in and that does not seem to work either.  I also tried logging out of my other two devices, my iPad and iPhone. It’s so hard to work with the encryption on Evernote! They really should make it a lot easier.  

Can anyone help me with this?
