  1. I have Evernote on my Android phone. During this data leak event I changed my web password but didn't get to changing the password on my Android instance of Evernote for a day. So for a day Evernote was unable to sync. During that time I was adding data to my Android Evernote instance. When I went to update my password in Evernote on my Android phone, I had to sign out and then sign back in. When I signed out it warned me about data loss since the data hadn't been synced but I was hoping it wouldn't effect the data I had put in during the last day. Well it did and now it appears that data is gone. So I'll be attempting the process above. I'm sure the Evernote team works hard and does a good job and this was a learning event for them, but this really stinks. There's something about the name Evernote that makes you think there's some security against loss in their system. Maybe they should call it Nevernote? Greg
  2. Yesterday I grumpily and sarcastically posted about this same thing. That post magically seems to have disappeared. At least the beta only makes you sign in once the first time you open it, but that caught me when I had no internet access and I couldn't get to my data. I had downloaded the beta when I had connectivity and then installed it later when I didn't. As Deverill posted (before the thread was deleted) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- I think this may have been in response to people saying it was bad that anyone could walk up to their computer and read their notes. Hopefully they will find a "happy medium" that solves both requests. I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to not be able to get to my Evernote contents. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Well it might have been a weak attempt at security, but if that was the motivation, there are better ways to implement security. I had the login information and still couldn't get to my data because EN wanted to phone home. My data was right here and I had the login info. If they want to make this about security then make EN so it can validate your username and password without connectivity and as an option require the username and password to start the program each time for the more security conscious. Though physical security is done better at the OS level with FileVault and requiring a password to unlock the machine. The data is on the hard drive, unencrypted. Happily when EN won't give you access to your own data you can always find it where it's stored. I suspect the need to login was an oversight. suggestion: Have connectivity/lack of connectivity be about syncing, not about having access to your own data. Let's see if this post gets deleted. FYI, I've never seen a good company that takes customer service seriously that deletes users's unfavorable posts. These things make me feel less likely to be upgrading to pro anytime soon. Greg

  4. I have a great suggestion for EN: Make it so you can't get to your data unless you have an internet connection! In fact, make it so if you have a bad internet connection you can't get to your data! Oh, wait, you already did. And the beta Version 3.1.2 Beta 1 (251394) doesn't fix that. Are you guys serious? Just spent a day with no internet and no EN. Guess what I just did? Exported all my notes out. If you ever get EN working like it did up until recently I'll come back. This is ridiculous. EN is supposed to help you get to your information?
  5. I'm having the same problems with Version 3.1.0 (246062). EN keeps making me sign in when the app is restarted or if connectivity with the internet is lost. This didn't happen with the previous version. I believe I logged in with my password once with the old version and nothing caused it to prompt me to log in again, not restarting the app or the computer nor losing internet connectivity. Is there a way to download old versions. Version 3.1.0 (246062) is really a pain. Greg
