(Archived) Security as an 'optional extra'

Recommended Posts



I've just started using Evernote, and I'm trying the free version to get a feel for how it works.  So far, I'm very impressed.


There's just one thing that stands out though: several security features (PIN lock, two factor authentication) are restricted to premium users only.


I think that sends a pretty bad cultural message: that security in Evernote is an 'optional extra', where the level of security you offer is proportional to the amount the customer is prepared to pay.


It won't stop me from using Evernote, or buying a Premium account if I'm happy with it, but it sucks that my data are less secure until I decide to go ahead and buy.  Sours the whole experience somewhat.
