John 0 Posted January 28, 2010 Share Posted January 28, 2010 Brainstorming:I wonder if it would be good to have an option for notes, perhaps tied to tags and/or folders or alternately just a separate, per-note property, that would require one to enter one's Evernote password to view user-defined confidential notes if using Evernote from a commonly lost or insecure device, such as a phone.I don't care if someone picks up my phone (borrowing it, after I forgot it somewhere, etc.) and looks at my grocery list, but I wouldn't want them to be able to search and view just anything there.Or there could be a timeout on this, so that in order to view a confidential note on a phone, one would needed to have entered the password in the last n minutes.This would also ideally be a per device option--my desktop computer will have physical security, as most often will my notebook, and then each has a login password to access the hardware and/or Windows. But my phone doesn't.One might just require the Evernote account password every time one uses Evernote on the phone, but that's a bit clumsy, and may encourage people to set up too-short passwords so as to be easy on a phone. (May still be a better solution, though--especially if combined with a timeout for the account password.)My apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere (I did a quick search and didn't find it).
