raindog 16 Posted September 22, 2014 Share Posted September 22, 2014 My laptop has not actually been stolen, but it occurred to me to consider what would happen if it was. I like to have contingency plans. So as regards Evernote specifically, let's say I've got the Windows client installed and it's sync'd regularly. Then someone steals my laptop. I use two-factor authentication. I can go into EN's web interface and "revoke access" for the relevant Windows laptop. So presumably if they then tried to log into EN, they'd have to authenticate and they wouldn't know my password (or have my two-factor). But what about the local data that's sync'd to the laptop? Is it encrypted in some form? If not, I assume it's easy to get/parse. It looks like the .exb file is a sqlite database and a typical sqlite client can see the tables, though querying returns garbage - perhaps because of encryption? I hope? Otherwise...I guess the options are a TrueCrypt container (kind of a headache) or just foreswearing the local client in favor of web only. Link to comment
