  1. BTW Brian, when you say "If a simple word document can be protected", you do know that MS document passwords are pretty useless, right? I mean, a quick Google will point you to a plethora of programs you can download & buy (for not that much $$) that will break the password. Pretty much the only thing MS document passwords are for is to keep a lightweight nib from getting into the document. But don't use a password protected MS document to store sensitive data such as credit card numbers, passwords, etc.
  2. Brian, I agree 100% with DAVE Engberg. Your complaint is similar to leaving your wallet on your desk & getting mad b/c while you were down the hall getting more coffee, that someone came in & got your credit card info. I work from home & leave my computer on 24/7. All my sensitive data is stored on Truecrypted drives. On the rare occasion when I store sensitive data on a non-Truecrypted drive, I Axcrypt it. Additionally, any programs I don't want someone to be able to open, I use Super Exe Lock by Superlogix. This allows you to password protect the program itself. So if you don't want anyone invoking EN on your computer, you could use a similar program. Make sure when you leave your computer, the programs are not open. Of course, this doesn't prevent anyone from making a copy of your EN files, taking it to another computer & downloading/installing EN. THAT's why you'd want the EN files encrypted (IE Truecrypt.) And similarly, when you leave for any length of time, you'd want to dismount the TC drive/container.
  3. :oops: So sorry, Dave! My husband is a sports freak & after 30 years of listening to Dick Enberg...got cOnFuSeD.
  4. Last I knew, the security on Evernote is *not* secure as far as encryption if anyone gets to your data (say they get your password or hack your account.) I don't put any sensitive info in Evernote's cloud. And my local Evernote notebooks are stored on a Truecrypted drive. In the following thread, even Dick Engberg says "I'd recommend using our built-in encryption feature for any credit card numbers or passwords that you put into Evernote. This is how I use my Evernote account." It's also my understanding, this "built-in encryption" only works on text, no PDF files. viewtopic.php?f=30&t=6722&p=32513&hilit=sensitive+data#p32513 I store my sensitive documents locally on a Truecrypted drive & in the cloud on Jungle Disk, which was designed for this type of use.
  5. I think the subject line is pretty self explanatory...I have an auto import set up (cool option!) and would like to be able, for each auto import set up, tell EN what tags to automatically assign to the imported files.
  6. I'm dinking with a program that seems very cool - Dropbox - and am playing around with it in conjunction with Evernote, Quicken & a couple of other programs. Dropbox is another "cloud" program, but the data is stored on Amazon's S3 system and is encrypted before being stored on the S3 system. What this means is that since there are alot of my Evernotes that I don't want on Evernote's "cloud" because they contain sensitive data (the idea behind the current EN encryption is great if you have only a few things that are sensitive...but if you regularly store sensitive data, it just isn't feasible...) I understand EN's position as to why they have no plans for fully encrypted notebooks and so what I've been doing is copying/pasting my EN files between my desktop & my laptop. But Dropbox seems to be the ideal solution to keep both computers in sync and yet still be able to have alot of sensitive data encrypted when it's sitting on the "cloud" server. I've only started dinking with this today, so cannot comment fully. But so far, I've run into one thing I don't like. Dropbox does not allow you to store your Dropbox folder (translate: sync folder) on a USB drive...unless it's mounted as a folder on an internal drive. But for many people, this may not be a problem.
  7. I have a Palm TX and do not have any plans to upgrade to a smart phone. I would like an EN client on my Palm TX, so I can view my Evernotes on the TX.
  8. I'm not a Palm developer, but I'd love it if someone DID create EN for Palm OS, that would hot sync with the EN desktop and would be willing to pay for such an app.
  9. I use a Palm TX (PDA, not smart phone) and would also love to have an Evernote client that would hot sync with EN desktop. I rely so much upon my PDA & have alot of third party programs installed on it. It would be great to be able to have my Evernotes on it as well.
