  1. There is no encryption on mobile devices (last I knew). That's why you can't edit the note. (It would need to be re-encrypted). I'm not sure I follow. I can see the text of the note when I use the password on the android but I can't modify the text because the re-encryption doesn't work on the android. Sorry, that just doesn't make any sense.
  2. I set up an encrypted note on the Windows based client with a password and I can edit it fine, no problem. However, when I use the latest android client, after I enter the password, it opens the note up but I cannot edit it. When I touch the pencil it immediately goes back to the encrypted note. Is this a bug? I have the latest android version as of today by the way.
  3. To take this a step further, there is a dfiference between password protecting a PDF & password encrypting a PDF. Again, encryption is the most secure way to go. All you have to do is Google to find any number of apps that will crack passwords. Even when using a strong password, if the document is only password protected & not password encrypted, it's one step easier for someone to get into. It's kind of like locking your door but putting the key under the mat. I don't see the advantage of using a password protected document when there are other, better, more secure ways to store sensitive data & they don't require any extra effort. Just like when I lock my door, I take my keys with me. I totally understand what you mean and the difference between regular passwords and encryption. However, based on several password crack (estimation) sites, it would take over 58 years to crack my password using today's best/fastest computers. Your point is still valid, but I think I'm safe with my strong password. reference: https://howsecureismypassword.net/
  4. I too was wanting a way to password a note but it looks like you can only password/encrypt the text in a note. While that is pretty good, it doesn't help me in all situations. For example, I want to make copies of certain documents for an upcoming Italy trip (ie: Driver License, passport, insurance papers, etc.,). Because those are images, not text, there is no real way to encrypt or password protect them in Evernote. You could zip them up first and then password protect them but then you need assurances of whatever device you're using has that same type of uncompression program available, plus it's extra steps. I vote that notes can be password protected or encrypted in some way! Regarding the previous comment on ease of cracking passwords for Office files, true, if you use weak password, but if you use very strong passwords like I do, then I thik it's unlikely someone would bother after a reasonable amount of time and effort.
  5. Yes, we do. Which works out well for us 99% of the time. We share a variety of notes that we occasionally add to as a 'team effort' (ie: new restaurants to try, movies to see, weekend getaway ideas, things to do, etc.). It's just that there is an occasional list (birthdays, christmas, etc.) that we want to still collect ideas but not actually share with each other. Not enough to get another account since the primary usefulness for us is to share notes the way we do.
  6. ahhh. that was almost a near perfect answer. But, it appears you can only use one password to encrypt whether you're encrypting text in one note or a different note, it appears that you have to use the same password. It would be nice if you could use seperate passwords for a different note/text you want to encrypt. Just a suggestion, still usable though, just not as much as I'd like it.
  7. OK, the ability to encrypt the text within a note works. Pretty cool actually. I think I would have preferred it to have the ability to encrypt or password protect the entire note but this certainly meets my needs to hide stuff from prying eyes THANKS!
  8. I tried looking but I wasn't able to find a way to password protect a note. This (for me) would be very handy since my partner and I both use Evernote but there are occasions where I have some ideas for a birthday, or weekend trip, etc, that I want to keep as a suprise. If there isn't a way to password protect a note (or notebook?) I'd sure like to see one in a future release.
  9. I actually did set this up, using a tag and the widget to display that particular note (which contained my to do list). The problem for me though is that the widget displays the information in a non-listed format so everything looks 'scrunched up'. I'd like a widget that allows me to display a to do list in an orderly list with direct access to the checkboxes. Instead of make a todo list inside a note, you can make each "to do item" as an individual note and apply the reminder for them. Then, go to the widget and configure it to show the reminders list. You will get this: Great idea.. but, I did exactly as you said but I don't have a 'reminders' in my notes list. I hae "Last viewed" "Last Updated" "Notebook" "Tag" and "Saved Search"

  11. I will chime in on this too. I also would like to see a seperate 'todo' list in a widget. I did try the evernote widget and used a tag to just show that note but it's not the same at all. Here are my two purposes. I also used colornote to put a todo list (widget) on my home screen, just with stuff I needed to do that week It's easy, not very busy looking and easy to see/access. My other purpose is to have a weekly menu 'board' on my kitchen tablet. I use this 'board' to outline what I'm making to take to lunch at work daily and the evening dinner meals. If evernote allowed me to do this, I could update this anywhere, which would be GREAT. Please consider some type of "todo" list widget!!!!
