  1. Thanks for the information. So now the question becomes how hard is it for someone to log into someone else's mac user id? Or is there a different, safer, way to take notes on a mac?
  2. I never let anyone use my Mac, and my password is strong. I'm worried about someone getting into my Mac anyway -- without knowing how that would be done -- and then getting access to my Evernotes. I hadn't thought of spotlight, thanks for informing me. Is there any way to encrypt the text files created by Evernote?
  3. The crux of the issue for me is that quitting is not logging out. This is not what I expect, it's counter-intuitive (and dangerous). The way Evernote seems to work, both on my Mac and iPhone, is that if I just quit Evernote, it’s not protected. Launching the app opens it up logged on, so anyone who gets onto my Mac or my iPhone also gets into my Evernote without having to log on. This is too easy an error to make (from a security point of view) and one which I’ve been making unknowingly for months. So, I think you might want to add an option to your app so that when quitting Evernote one can choose to do so without logging out or with logging out. Those who don’t want to be bothered with this prompt should be able to opt out of it in preferences, but for the rest of us, security-aware, we could have this work so that either every time we quit we also log out, or we get a choice each time we quit Evernote. Please let me know if this option is already available and I just haven’t seen it, or if it can be made available. Thanks, FrogPhotog
