  1. D. T. Low said: That's good to know I do accept I can use the desktop client to encrypt text in an individual note without EN holding the keys, but who holds the encryption keys to everything else? I can't see anything in the Blog which says anyone other than Google, although since it is pretty technical I am happy to accept I may be missing something.
  2. I'm a bit intrigued by "encryption at rest". Does this mean that Google, a company which has a pretty relaxed attitude to privacy, is unable to scan our notes for profiling purposes? I too would like EN to adopt full end to end encryption of notes, possibly on an individual notebook basis or even on an account basis. That would be a real selling point compared to the competition.
  3. Agree and TBH I don't store anything of serious personal value in Evernote. That's not to say I wouldn't miss it if it went astray. I'm with the others on here. EN should be concentrating on things users want, improved UI and Desktop apps and above all, end-to-end encryption. Even the ability to encrypt individual notebooks with EN holding the keys as an interim step would be better than what we have now. This could be a marketing feature - "we believe your data is yours and take all necessary steps to protect it". Clear and unambiguous. Given the connections with Google I can't help but wonder if this is paving the way for a sale to Google. Aggregate all the information and Google grows yet more powerful. Incidentally you can import EN data into DevonThink Pro. http://www.devontechnologies.com/products/devonthink/overview.html Overkill for most folks but it is a way out although you do mostly have to rely on DropBox or Box for sync purposes. I think you can use WebDAV as well so you may be able to set up your own server using a Synology or QNAP NAS box.
  4. What makes you think Microsoft don't do the same thing with OneNote and scan notes for information? Given Win10's cavalier approach to privacy I wouldn't trust MS any more than Evernote.
