APhillips801 0 Posted July 31, 2014 Share Posted July 31, 2014 I have been using EverNote for 2 years (and using passwords in general for about 35 years) and just had a nasty problem. I have several files in EverNote all password encrypted with the same (strong) password. I just went to look at my file of Internet passwords, double-clicked the little "lock with 6 squares" icon, typed in my password and the file came up. The a second later it went back to the little lock with 6 squares icon - I might have accidentally pressed a keyboard key. So I double-clicked and retyped my password and EverNote came up with a red error message "Invalid passphrase. Try again." I have tried many times. I also tried typing the password into a text file to see that there is nothing wrong with the keyboard - then copying and pasting it. I have tried opening other encrypted files with the same password and they work fine. I have never seen anything like this before. It really looks like some sort of bug in EverNote has changed my password. This is very serious as I do not store this information anywhere else. Luckilly I just checked and my phone has not been synced with the new password and I can still see the file on my phone. If EverNote had synced with my phone then I would be in real trouble. Has anyone else seen this sort of problem? It's possible that EverNote was displaying some sort of prompt and I accidentally hit the Enter key. But it should not be this easy to accidentally change a password. Using EverNote 18.104.22.16884 on Windows 7. Link to comment
