  1. Just minor addendum on the GUID. It will change for a note if you move it between Consumer Evernote and Business Evernote. Notes don't actually move in those scenarios. They are copied then deleted at the source. If you don't have Evernote Business, then it doesn't matter. If you do, just be aware.
  2. Yes, sort of. Grab all of the notes you want the GUID for, then create a table of contents note for them. Export the TOC note as an ENEX or HTML file. Edit in either exported file in a text editor. extract the GUIDs from the XLM/HTML code.
  3. It does, but not with the note count like the desktop does on the status bar. Oddly enough, it does for save searches though.
  4. The Custom Dictionary file is a text file in C:\Users\username\Evernote\LocalStorage but it has a checksum, so it doesn't seem you can just add stuff to the text file via a text editor. Best you may be able to do is add all the words you use frequently to a single note, then right-click and add them. There would conceivably be a ton if dictionaries to add beyond medical. Computer, Greek/Hebrew, proper names from history, biology, etc. I would think though if you added them as per above, you could keep that custom dictionary.txt file with you from PC to PC.
  5. I've never seen anything in the left panel accidentally disappear. You have to right-click on it and delete it, and you'll get a confirmation. You can move it, but you've just changed its location, maybe moving a notebook from one stack to another. Can you be more clear on what exactly you are referring to?
  6. Either that, or don't connect to the Wifi and just use LTE. That is the only way you can guarantee security. Even if you use their Wifi with your VPN, they may block VPN traffic, and if you disconnect the VPN and it stays connected to wifi, your apps, like Evernote, will continue to sync in the background, and that is open to being decrypted by your IT department. Once you use IT resources, be it a computer, phone, or just their network access, you are agreeing to having your traffic decrypted while it is on their network before it is re-encrypted to go to the internet.
  7. OneNote's encryption is not at the database level, but when you manually password protect a section. If you cannot rely on computer security you should only use Evernote on the web. Evernote on the PC and Mac is not designed to keep your data secure from a user that has full admin rights to your PC, and that goes beyond encrypting the database. If you use the web version with 2 factor authentication, and tell it NOT to remember this PC for 30 days when logging in, then when the browser window is closed, even a domain admin could not get in. However, if your IT department has installed an encryption certificate on your PC to read your encrypted traffic, as many IT departments do, then all bets are off. Even encryption between the PC client and server would be in the clear to anyone in your IT department monitoring your traffic from their home in their PJ's.
  8. Not on Windows. When you delete a notebook, it warns you that you are about to permanently delete notes, even those in the trash as they are associated with that notebook, and when you delete, they are gone forever. I've not done this enough on my Mac to know what it says.
  9. I understand that, but I am trying to see if your search index is totally messed up, or if it is just on your phone.
  10. Does your search work ok if you log into Evernote on your PC/Mac via the web?
  11. Agreed. It is similarly difficult to get to on the Mac. In fact, there is no button anywhere. You have to use Shift+CMD+ALT+Hold-your-finger-to-your-nose+Turn-counter-clockwise-twice+[] keys or something like that. I gave up even trying to find this hidden feature in iOS yesterday at a meeting and took notes in OneNote, which as the indent/outdent button right on the toolbar on my iPhone.
  12. I wouldn't hold anyone/thing up to Facebook for comparisons of security. That is like your teenaged son after being in a fender bender telling you it is ok because the town drunk was in a much worse accident last weekend and killed a bus load of children.
  13. Hmmm... that is a lot riding on weekly maint. Seems this and the 2FA issue would be hot fixes, not “we’ll get to it next week.”
  14. You’ll have to contact support (link in my sig) if you cannot do it through the web portal.
  15. Opened ticket #2801981. Let's see what they say, besides rebooting my PC and the usual.
  16. No, because then I would be getting them randomly as people tried to break into my account. I only get the SMS when I am logging in and need a code.
  17. @John in Michigan USA The exact same 6 digit code! Yes, there seems to be a problem. I use Authy, but same calculation as Google Authenticator. And same 6 digit code. @Jim Finn I wonder if you got a different code because it was on the verge of changing so the text went out before it changed and Authy showed you a new one? (or vice versa)
  18. I use two factor authentication and use a Google Authenticator device. I just logged into the website on a new browser instance and when it asked me for my 2FA code, before I could get my app launched on my phone, Evernote texted me my code. I just checked my account security and Text is not checked, but the app is. Why would Evernote text me this? I had not failed to authenticate, nor had I asked it to use a backup method, which for me would be my backup codes I have saved, not text. Seems to be a security issue with Evernote's servers. @Rich Tener
  19. Log into Evernote on the web. Click on your Account picture, then click on Devices. Delete/revoke your old iPad there. It should work then.
  20. Most PCs today have a TPM. Besides, this is a red herring. The OP was about installing Evernote on a work pc and not wanting the company to have access. That isn’t Home, it is probably encrypted anyway, and anything you install on your work PC is available to your company. Period.
  21. Or, encrypt the hard drive via Bitlocker (Windows) or FileVault (macOS). Free Very fast often handled at hardware level vs software encryption
  22. but it isn't encrypted, right? It is just plain text in the database. So there is no inherent protection of the .exb file, or is that not correct? And on the Mac, it is plain text in its format. I've seen the note files.
  23. The problem is signing off of a Windows or Mac client does not revoke access to any notes stored locally. They are largely plain text on the hard drive in their respective databases. To really make Evernote secure, it would need to both log the user off and wipe local content, similar to the Wipe Device commands available in Office 365 for mobile devices.
