    The search is only external to Evernote.  There is no access by search engines like Google

    >>I heard 256-bit encryption is by far the strongest.

    I heard an explanation that went.  The chances of anyone breaking 128-bit Encryption is close to zero.  If you want to get closer to zero, use 256-bit or higher

    Thanks for clearing all of my doubts :D
    I was gonna get trello but I came to know that support employees can anytime become administrators and access my notes without my permission. Just got confirmed of that. Also they DONT have local notebook saving option.

    You don't necessarily need to encrypt notes in local notebooks, unless you are concerned about someone getting access to your PC.  And remember, any text that is encrypted will not be searchable.

    Alright, thanks :D

    Evernote has a text encryption feature5a4294d52a7b1_ScreenShot2017-12-26at10_27_51.png.a1047470108f6273d84f6eab243fac39.png
    On my Mac, I highlight the text, right-click and select Encrypt Text

    I also use encrypted attachments; pdfs and office/iwork documents
    This is native encryption built-into the external apps

    >>And what do you mean by search indexing?

    You can access your data on the servers via the web platform (www.evernote.com) and search for text using the search box.  To speed up this search, Evernote has built an index of every word in your notes

    >>any way to not let evernote access my notes as you said they do have access for OCR processing?

    Encryption, Local Notebooks

    >>And after encryption, my notes are completely secure right?

    I believe so.  Use a strong encryption process; Evernote uses AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a 128 bit key

    A noobish question on the search index thing, only if I search, it will show the topics and texts of my notes and it won't show if any random people use the search engine to find notes? Moreover, no random people can search notes via the search engine, right?
    And I heard 256-bit encryption is by far the strongest. Any external way to encrypt as Evernote has only 128-bit encryption facility?

    Except, perhaps, for notes of a confidential nature one only wants to use at their Desktop while availing themselves of the EN search engine?  Local notebooks work well for this.
    Correct. I am mostly infront of my PC. I rarely think and do work while I am on the move. So encrypted local notebooks is the best for me.

    Evernote has two types of notebooks; default and Local
    The Local notebook is not uploaded to the cloud; there is no "auto-saving".  Users are advised to backup their data

    >>2) Can any Evernote employee access and see my confidential notes? 

    Evernote has procedures in place to ensure employees are not accessing our data
    However, you should be aware that Evernote does have access for OCR processing and search indexing
    I protect my sensitive data using encryption

    >>1) How secure and private are my confidential notes in Evernote?

    Completely secure if you encrypt them.  I trust Evernote's security measures, but my notes are still viewable on my Win/Mac device

    Thanks for replying @DTLowWhen you said encryption, how would you advise me to encrypt my data? What is the way? 
    And what do you mean by search indexing?
    And regarding OCR processing of my personal and business data notes and such, any way to not let evernote access my notes as you said they do have access for OCR processing?
    And after encryption, my notes are completely secure right?

    As @DTLow said, you can make local notebooks whose notes are stored only on the computer on which they are created. But that also defeats a major purpose for Evernote, to be able to create and access notes on multiple devices. If I were going to make notes that I never wanted to appear on any other device, unless I copied them on a flash drive, I'd use some other program. I would use Evernote for notes I wanted to access easily on other devices.

    Thanks @Dave-in-Decatur and I 90% of the time use my pc for my notes and such. I rarely use my phone to note anything. So only pc and mobile for me.

  4. Hi, I am about to use Evernote for my personal and work. And I have some queries:

    1) How secure and private are my confidential notes in Evernote?

    2) Can any Evernote employee access and see my confidential notes? I know people can see my notes and things only if I give access to them but here I am talking about Evernote employees.

    3) Is there any way to prevent Evernote from auto-saving into the cloud and make Evernote to save the notes on my PC?


    Thanks in advance.
