  1. A "simple passcode lock" does pretty much nothing except keep out the casual user. IE, a guest in your home who has access to your computer. It won't keep out a hacker. Exactly. It won't keep out hackers and it doesn't need to. I am talking about those "Casual users" who can come to my computer today and read my stuff. With a Passcode lock, they can't access my evernote.
  2. You should use a true password manager for this type of info. Well again its all about convenience and who do you trust. Lastpass was hacked 2 years back. Evernote makes it easy to store information and find them. Even though i dont condone people to store things like password out in the open, but evernote certainly has the ability to store sensitive information. The encryption feature is also great but sadly its on "Per note" basis and not on entire account or notebook. A simple passcode lock will certainly add an extra layer of security on the existing secured and awesome Evernote.

  5. I know User accounts on desktop OS gives you an overall security. However if someone really uses Evernote as his/her Second brain, even a slightest mistake of not logging off or switching to a different user can cost big. It really depends on the use case. If a user uses Evernote for general note taking, to-dos and store clips then they probably wont really appreciate the lock feature. However if you are storing passwords, credit card information, banking information and other crucial details I think having an extra layer of security is a must. If someone really wants to use your Machine for
  6. I wonder why isn't there a passcode lock for Evernote Desktop App? Other people with access to my pc/mac can simply come in and open my evernote and see my private stuff. I believe having a simple passcode lock (just like the Iphone/android) app solves this problem.
