  1. It shouldn't be hard - just a new API. Plus Google said it was a requirement for apps going forward. Bank Of America did it a long time ago. For an app that I pay a lot of money to use, I would expect more...
  2. When will Pixel 4 Face Unlock be supported for the Evernote App?
  3. I didn't do anything. As Jeff already pointed out to you, I do not work for Evernote & never have. I used to be a user, just like you (I have since abandoned EN in favor of Onenote.) And yes, IMO, if it's not important enough for you to learn how to secure your computer against a thief getting to your data, then yes, I feel it's either not really all that important to you or else you should not have the information on your computer b/c simply having a PIN on the Evernote app does not prevent anyone with a leeeeetle bit of computer knowledge from opening the MySql file on your hard drive that is your Evernote database. Good luck. What YOU did was display attitude and disrespect. I was just trying to get a simple answer to a simple question - why was the feature pulled from the software. That's all. I don't need a psychoanalysis. Good Night.
  4. Concern about someone stealing your computer is not the same as a "casual user" who is more like a guest in your home. Your options have already been pointed out or linked to in this thread for both keeping a casual user out as well as concern about theft. The fact that you dislike the answers you get is unfortunate but not any of my concern. If you find it too tedious to secure your computer, in the event of theft would indicate it's not really that important to you. Or else simply don't keep important stuff on your computer. (shrug) Your shoulders must be be really sore from all the shrugging. "If you find it too tedious to secure your computer, in the event of theft would indicate it's not really that important to you." Oh really. The reason I am concerned about physical theft is that everything in Evernote is EXTREMELY important to me. I have all my passwords, account numbers, credit account numbers, social security numbers, and on and on. 1. Don't put personal information on a work computer.---It is NOT my work computer 2. Use the web version.---The option I will use, but it is slow and clunky. 3. Put your Evernote database in a Truecrypt container & dismount the container when you leave.-- You must be kidding. So this is easier than just closing the Program. Your options have already been pointed out or linked to in this thread for both keeping a casual user out as well as concern about theft. The fact that you dislike the answers you get is unfortunate but not any of my concern. I don't need your concern. I need someone at this company to tell me why you took this option out of the desktop software. And can the attitude please. I PAY for this service.
  5. BurgersNFries gave out good information, particularly considering that she's responding as a fellow user and not an Evernote employee (i.e., someone who can't change Evernote's policy, design or implementation). That's in no way troll-like behavior. What you've asked for seems somewhat different than what the original poster asked for. You can log out of the Windows Evernote client, and it will require you to log back in with your password before you can access your notes again. The point is, the old version had a setting so that I did not have to log out for Evernote to ask for a password when the program was restarted. In my normal day of computing at home, I refer to Evernote about 25 times per day. If I have to log out every time I leave the house, in case my computer is stolen while I am away from home, it becomes tedious and prone to not getting done. If someone steals my computer, they would have to pull the power cord. So when they booted it up later, Evernote would require a password on start up with the old version even if I had not logged out. With the new version it does not require a password. That's the whole point. If there is some lofty reason for pulling this setting from the new versions - what is it. I suspect it is just sloppy programming...
  6. Your Evernote database is not encrypted unless you put it into something like a Truecrypt container - please search the board for more info, should you need it. A PIN will only keep the casual user out. All options I presented are viable/satisfactory. Just because you do not like them doesn't mean they are not satisfactory. You say it shouldn't be hard for the devs to put a PIN on it. But its not hard at all for you to use your own PIN software such as Game Protector... (shrug) As a moderator, I would think you would not show an attitude like a common troll. This setting was on the original desktop version I installed. So what if it only keeps the casual user out - that's better than nothing. As it is I live in fear of my computer being stolen. Even on a reboot, Evernote opens without a password. All we are asking is to put back what you once had. As far as the web version, it does the same. Once I log in, even if I close the browser, it still opens without a password. So what have you gained with the web version?
