SS34 1 Posted October 6, 2014 Share Posted October 6, 2014 I am trying to find the best way to protect my personal information on Evernote when at work. I have a premium EN account with substantial work and personal information. Until very recently, I used my own laptop with my client. Thus, I kept all notes in one premium EN account. I now have a company-issued laptop and would really like to continue using this account w/o making my personal notes accessible to the employer. It is company owned property, and they therefore have the right to access whatever is on the hard drive. While my work and personal notes are somewhat segregated by folder, I use a single to-do system with tags. So I like to keep everything together. On to my question, is there a way to "lock" certain folders or otherwise keep my entire EV account encrypted or locked? I have no problem with making work notes open, but would really rather not have them access family and personal stuff. Techniques I have tried or thought about: 1. Use the web browser client at work. I have used the web browser client, but that does not have everything I need (sorting on tags, dragging files into folders to create new notes, etc.). I made pretty extensive use of the client software. 2. I thought about creating a separate free EN account to use at work. Then I could share my work folders between the two accounts. I'm not sure if this will keep all my tags in sync? 3. Encryption. I read up on it and it appears that you have to encrypt the contents of each note individually. I don't think that is practical. 4. Logging Off. I could off course log off, but I keep Evernote open and use it all day long. I have read several posts in this forum and didn't come across anything else. I welcome any ideas. Thanks!
