(Archived) Storing sensitive documents on Evernote

Recommended Posts


I have read several posts on security, but I am curious how or if people are using Evernote to store any sensative documents (medical records, etc). If they are now are you doing it? I am concerned on putting certain docs online. I can encrypt the document and but would not expect it to be searchable. Currently I keep everyone on a detachable drive.

Any ideas, thoughts??

For sensitive documents, I store them in an Evernote unsync'd Notebook on my local client.

This prevents the info from being accessible on my mobile device or the web.

And if you are only going to store them locally, then remember to back them up....

Personally, I put most things in Evernote - if someone wants to steal my identity there are far easier ways of doing it than getting into Evernote, finding my notes, un-encrypting them etc etc.

The only real exception is my banking user names and passwords which live in my head only.

You should back up regardless of whether the notes are in sync'd or local non-sync'd notebooks. True, the sync'd notebooks can be restored from the cloud, but for large Evernote databases, that will take a considerable amount of download time.

In Windows, all notes, sync'd notebooks, local non-sync'd notebooks, shared notebooks are stored in the .exb file.
