idoc 282 Posted May 5, 2012 Share Posted May 5, 2012 A few weeks ago I encrypted all the text on one of my notes in EN. At the time I chose a password and observed the note disappeared and was replaced by an ecrypt icon. It seemed to work well and I was prompted to put in the password to see the contents of the note. However, I am now noticing that I can simply double click on the icon (without putting in any password) and the note appears again. I tried synching the program, closing it down and re-opening it and am still not being prompted for a password. Finally, I realized that I had to formally exit the program (File-Exit or Ctrl-Q) for the encryption to work properly. When I formally exit the program and then open it again, I see that the note is indeed encrypted and prompts me for the password if I want to open it. However, when I exit the program in this way I also get a warning that "Exiting the program will disable all clipping functionality in Evernote". This, however, does not seem to be the case because even if I exit in this way I find that I am still able to clip anything I want. I find it all a little confusing.Incidentally, I have encrypted all of my sensitive pdf files within EN through Acrobat. This works very well and I am always prompted for a password to open these no matter how I open or close EN. Outside of EN I use Lastpass for all my website passwords. I am considering converting my sensitive note within EN into a pdf file and encrypting it via Acrobat. The only downside is that I constantly add to it and it would be too cumbersome to do that via pdf. Link to comment
