  1. Hello, I was reading an article regarding Evernote and Android encryption and decided to do some digging to understand how credentials are stored in the Chrome Web Clipper. I opened up the .js files in the Chrome extension directory to explore the code. It seems that the credentials are being stored in the same "flawed" manner as Android - using the XOR scheme. Better yet, the key is posted in the very same file for anyone to see. My question is this: what happens if some malicious website breaks into the local storage of my browser and steals my saved credentials. Given the data available in the .js files, it seems the hacker could easily obtain my password. Does Evernote plan on addressing this credential storing scheme in the near future?

  3. Has the problem with tagging notes with geographic location information been fixed? I have over 500 notes tagged with geo information and only ~350 of them show up in the Mac Atlas view. They all show up perfectly in the "Places" view in the iOS app.
  4. Any updates on if this fixed all your notes? I've got the same issue. The iPhone appears to be correct but the Mac is missing about 120 notes from the Atlas view. Editing the note or the location tag didn't fix this for me. Running 5.0.4.
  5. I am also having a problem with Atlas. On my iPhone, all my notes with geographic information associated with them are showing up correctly. However, on my Mac, only about 2/3 notes are showing up in the Atlas view. Editing the note itself or the location tag doesn't solve the problem.
