BumbleBeeTuna 0 Posted December 17, 2009 Share Posted December 17, 2009 I just signed up to inquire about the security flaw on Evernote for Android. The email welcoming me to the Evernote forums has sent my password to me in plain text. I know this doesn't automatically mean Evernote is storing my password in plain text but how do I know? And isn't this considered an unacceptable practice now? I am further bothered by the security Evernote has in place, especially since notes can be sensitive information.Now for Android: I was going through my SD card using a file explorer looking for a screenshot I made on another program and came across an Evernote folder on my SD card. I plugged my phone in via USB and saw that the contents inside this SD card are my notes! And other apps can have access to this sensitive information. It was extremely troubling that I had some of my notes in a location that can easily be accessed by other applications. I had to uninstall Evernote. Is this going to change? Either way, I've come to the decision that Evernote really doesn't care about my privacy/security much so I'm going to have to look into other note-taking options. I just wanted to have some clarification on this matter because it is a highly irresponsible thing to do when handling people's information.Thank you. Link to comment
