  1. I want to be very clear. We aren't asking for encryption. We are asking for something as simple as not loading the screen with the note/notebook until a password is entered. Again, not looking for any true security but rather protection from the most casual / opportunistic peeking which solves 99.9%+ of occurrences we care about. Everyone recognizes Evernote is not meant as a vault but rather convenience.
  2. This. Give me the ability to put some basic level of non-access on specific notes/notebooks. I am not trying to stop someone who is legitimately trying to hack my computer. I am not trying to stop a determined IT professional at my office. Those situations make up 0.001% of the cases I care about. 99.999% of the time is just someone casually using my computer during a work meeting or other casual situation. They either don't mean to look - they click on the wrong note, or on the wrong notebook and the first note that pops up is something personal like some a note on my parent's finances - or they purposefully click when the casual opportunity exists. Let's be honest it is human nature to peek but given even the least resistance wouldn't try further. In either case a very simple level of protection would suffice and I am pretty sure this is all most of us are asking for. I don't care if the note remains unencrypted. I don't care if it is in fact still sitting on my hard drive unencrypted. I just want the program to not DISPLAY it until I type in a password or PIN. Help me protect from casual/opportunistic situations and I would be on Professional version in a heartbeat because it would let me use the program for both work and personal. I am not putting super secret things on there that will ruin me...just stuff I would prefer not be made public. 99.999% of the time any ridiculously simple form of privacy would suffice. I am not trying to protect super secret stuff but just don't want certain things casually available.
