  1. This is the weirdest thing ever. I work as technology consultant, and one of the critical parts of my work in helping others is teaching people how to manage their passwords. I have started using Evernote to store my own passwords, and now wanting to encrypt the note so that it cannot be accessed without my password. A great idea, but it doesn't work AT ALL. I created a note and titled it. I then selected the text and chose "encrypte selected text". The first time, and only the first time, I was asked to create a password. Once all done, I see a little bar representing my encrypted text... Hoorah! But accessing it is as easy as double clicking. I experimented and unencrypted it, then re-encrypted again, only this time there is no password required. I checked to see if I could open on my iPhone app, and it DOES require my passcode, but also says that the file is being edited by another user, which it isn't, because I've closed my desktop app. I also checked the online version, and it ALSO requests the passphrase, but does not insist the note is being edited elsewhere. My final experiment was to create a brand new note and encrypt it. Again, no passphrase asked for or given. Encryption looks successful. Double clicking opens it. Checked on the iPhone, same passphrase as first note. What is going on here? My conclusion is that this aspect of EN is buggy at best. No complaints otherwise, other than the rather odd and inconsistent disconnect in navigation between iPhone, desktop app, and online versions.
  2. Hi, I can not open on my iPhone or iPad (both with iOS 9.2.1 & EN 7.10) a PDF file that I encrypt using PDFPen Pro with AES256 security . The problem is when I try to enter the password, which it is rejected as if it were wrong. However, I can open the the same file with the same password with EN desktop in my iMac. This problem does not exist if I use AES128 encryption. This is a bug, or EN for iOS is not compatible with AES256 encryption?
  3. I've been an Evernote user for a long time now (premium subscriber for more than 5 years) and after the last privacy "disaster" you have tried to implement, the only significant improvement I really would like to see really soon is a way of having seamless encryption of all our notes. I really don't feel comfortable with the possibility of employees snooping around my notes. Encryption (implemented right) is the only way to ensure this will not happen...
  4. Hi all, Our development team is aware of an issue where users report that they get a password incorrect error on Mac client or are unable to decrypt but no error message or password hint appears. This issue has been resolved in the next update to Evernote for Mac, version 6.11. If you wish to update to get the fix immediately, you can install the beta version using these steps: Go to Evernote > Preferences > Software Update and check the box next to "Update to beta versions when available". Once you have updated, if you no longer want to continue on the beta track, go back and uncheck the box next to "Update to beta versions when available". 6.11 Beta 1 can also be found here: Let me know if y'all have any questions!
  5. I had the issue where I couldn't open an encrypted note on the Mac App (Version 6.10) and on the web, but only in the iPhone app. I upgraded to 6.11 Beta for Mac and it solved the issue but I still cannot decrypt the note on the web. I have 2 other encrypted notes and I can decrypt them on all devices, it only affects 1 note. Thanks for any support on this!
  6. I would like to store some secure documents within Evernote, however Evernote for years has lacked full encryption on notes and has constantly ignored the request from many to fully encrypt our data. This should be core to the Evernote service offering. Users should have the ability to control their own encryption keys as well.
  7. Given the recent news surrounding EN's privacy policy changes (although they have dialed them back since), I have been looking in to using encryption within my notes for the first time. Personally, I don't keep much confidential information in EN, but I do use it as a daily journal, so I would prefer to have that information private. My question is in regards to the encryption of text within a note. When I choose to encrypt a note, it prompts me for a password. So for note 1, I enter an encryption password. Now, when I go to encrypt text in note 2, I can enter the same password as note 1, or I can enter a new password for note 2 that is different than note 1 (this is not recommended by EN). My question: Is there a limit to how many unique encryption passwords I am allowed to have? Could I conceivably use a different encryption password for every note? All 100k of them that I am allowed as a user? Or will I eventually run in to trouble somewhere with this? Thanks in advance for your help.
  8. I don't understand, how can Backblaze encrypt all your data (terabytes of it), while charging $50/yr. But Evernote, which charges about the same and only stores on average 1/1000 of the data can't encrypt all the data?? If it's an issue of size of the notes(and opening them frequently), there should be some design plan here that allows text-only notes to be encyrpted and searchable. Backblaze takes about a minute to open 4tb of data, but text-only files are extremely small in size, and should be able to be searched quickly. Or at the very least, let us make certain notes encrypted (by say right clicking on the note, and clicking encrypt). We could do these for some text-notes which we feel are private. It REALLY bothers me that Evernote doesn't take this more seriously. This is one of the most important things I'd want if not the most important.
  9. In Firefox (latest version) on both Mac and Windows computers, encrypted text in notes (when opened/un-encrypted), is uneditable (not even selecteable). It is all highlighted light green if you try to select anything in it (e.g., for copy and paste) or when you try to edit it. It almost seems to be treated like an image in that if you click and hold on any part of the encrypted text, all of it is selected and able to be drug around. Please seek a solution.
  10. Just wondering....... https://turtlapp.com/ seems to encrypt your entire note, and even better, they can't even see the contents......
  11. Hi When entering password and unlocking an encrypted text note, the note stays visible until I select another note. Is there a setting I have missed to re-activate the encryption after a timeout (when I'm not working/viewing the actual note)?: Otherwise... this would be a request to the Evernote Team! I have several times forgotten about de-crypted notes and much later found them "opened" and readable for everybody! :-(
  12. In Windows Evernote, when you encrypt text, it offers an option to "Remember password until I quit Evernote". But it seems that you have to actually sign out in order for it to stop remembering the password. If you just quit Evernote, then next time you start, it still remembers the password. Am I missing something?
  13. Evernote Desktop has a great feature: encrypt text a part of text by password. When setting it, user is told that if he losts password, the text is unrecoverable. But! When I encrypted text and tried to open it as Shared note (anonymous access through web-browser) the text is.. Visible! Doesn't seem to be unrecoverable The same thing if I open the note in web-app or android app. Is it a proper behaviour? In my opinion, this part of text must be hidden from anywhere. Let it be recoverable only using desktop apps (by the way, why not mobile one?), but in any other cases with no possibility to enter password, it must be hidden!
  14. How secure are the notes stored in Evernote? Is there a way to make sure the files stored in the Evernote directory structure on the local hard drive are encrypted? If I store company documents, including peoples SSNs, and personally identifiable information, how secure are they? When a notebook is shared with another Evernote user, does the data pass back and forth as SSH? Thanks
  15. How does evernote know decryption password is not correct? Is it saving the hash of the password while encryption? Why am I not able to decrypt the cipher text obtained from exporting the note using an online tool? It give gibberish. Eg: <en-crypt cipher="AES" length="128">RU5DMEb2+eYtU5Eq2CuLb01T7rWz4Xe+phn/M8uxJH/t8hWH5/9MIAvBRRYu86ci8k/tMJ0vUxDlQWOiXNh5zyYdBBv69QijTMA6zPjL9opm/ZhNu4YysZftyuMTYjPJyIMGzGlvFM9BbA+HeQtIcd0i3uVwo7ZLDJsYr5CVM9FGDhAd77tEBDR7A/aegkQ+mb8eGNhq4Q977hOhlyMi+NQ1dhA5MiQ44c7v2xhxY69BBZ3u</en-crypt> The text is abc and the password is 123. I tried decrypting the content part using http://aesencryption.net/ with 128 bit but doesn't work. Any idea? Thanks.
  16. I use Evernote in in order of preference on the following devices: 1. iPhone (iOS app) 2. Work PC (Evernote Web) 3. iPad (iOS app) 4. MacBook Pro (MAC OS app) 5. iMac (MAC OS app) I am unable to encrypt text in my iPhone (let alone the other encryption abilities that are requested in other posts) so if I wish to change a login and encrypt that within a note, i have to enter it and leave it unencrypted until I return to the desktop version Why is this still a problem? Every feature available on the Web or desk top version should be available in the mobile version. Or am I missing something?
  17. Hi, I have some notes with sections of encrypted text generated several years ago (2011 or so), which I can't decrypt using the desktop application. The "Note Decryption" popup will become stuck on top of the application and will not go away after clicking 'cancel' or 'OK'. The only way to make it disappear is to close the application. I am able to decrypt the text using the web interface and the Android app. Has anybody else observed this? I am using Version 6.10 Beta 2 (454213 Direct) for Mac. Thanks! Giovanni
  18. For those having problems changing the Password on encrypted text (Windows 4.6.7.8) uncript any text you want to Encrypt with a new passwordHighlight and drag over with mouse the text you want to EncryptHit keys Ctrl + Shift + X* * * If it automatically encrypts it to the old saved password that means you have checked the box "Remember passphrase until I quit Evernote" * * * You will need to close the Evernote program and then restart it -- but (for me) if you have Evernote syncing in the background -- You will need to close Evernote in the Task Bar as well (lower right for windows 7) before you restart the Evernote program -- this way the program is fully closed first. As before -- Open the program -> go to the note you want to encript -> highlight text -> Ctrl + Shift + XType in a NEW password prassphase you wantNew window comes up -- hit Create a new Passphrase (disregard the statement "not a good idea")Why "not a good idea"? Evernote is reminding you that if you fail to give yourself a hint of the new password phrase and you forget the password, there is no way to retreave this encrypted textSo give yourself a decent enough hint of your new PasswordIf you check the box "Remember passphrase until I quit Evernote" this will become your new default password -- I think (??) for any future encrypted text notes. This does NOT change your other encripted notes Now create a new note in your Evernote account and put this in it -- if you are like me this is the 3rd time I have tried to learn how to change passwords as I keep forgetting I need to log out first is NEVER explained anywhere -- that I could find.
  19. Hi Everyone. I'm trying to figure out this maddening problem with encrypted text in notes. As I see in this forum post, this problem has existed since at least 2013: What the user who wrote this did not state is that This is not only a Linux problem - it occurs on both Windows 8.sucks and Windows 10. As soon as this occurs, the encrypted text picture becomes just a picture and you can no longer decrypt text. To do so, you have to move to another note then back again to the note with the encrypted text. At least, you can copy the encrypted text, but only if you click and hold the mouse button until you've selected all the text you want and Ctrl+C before releasing the mouse button. It's very clear that this behavior is a bug, and it's been 2.5 years since the original post I found was written; how is it that this is still an issue? What can we do to have encrypted text in notes be really useful? Andrew
  20. I mostly use the evernote on portable devices (Android), I think most people do so. I wish it were possible to put encryption in my notes, as with the desktop version.
  21. I have tons of passwords. I like the idea of using Evernote as a sort of password manager: Create a note for each username / password, and other applicable details that you have. Tag it up and leave nice comments to leverage search Highlight > "Encrypt Selected Text" on the portion of the note that contains any sensitive details as plain text. I understand that Evernote content is heavily encrypted so I feel like this is a reasonable approach to password management. However there seems to be (at least what I would consider) a security flaw with the "Note History" feature available on Premium accounts in that any information that was stored as plain-text before having been encrypted is easily viewed in a previous version of the note. Doesn't really protect against shoulder surfing / staying logged in to evernote with an unlocked workstation. After all: Everything is stored as plain-text before it has a chance to be encrypted. So my enhancement requests would be these: Add an option to disable revision history on a per-note and global basis Add an option to delete revision history on a per-note basis Add an option to retain X days of revisions history or Y number of revisions on a per-note and global basis Add an option to re-prompt for password before viewing revision history Add logic that says 'if the text is encrypted on the current version of the note, also encrypt / obfuscate in the history view. I understand this may be tricky from a 'detect what's encrypted now but wasn't before' point of view. An alternative would be to implement "if the current version has ANY encryption, then encrypt the entire previous version with the same hash". This could lead to 'nested' encryptions, but I don't see that as an issue. Add an option to provide a 'global' encryption passphrase (which may or may not be different than the password used to login). Only the hash of that string gets stored (obviously) When a user chooses to "Encrypt Selected Text", they have the option to apply this passphrase rather than typing it in (possibly incorrectly) Similarly, add an option to prompt that the passphrase be entered a second time to verify. This would reduce the risk of a user entering a passphrase incorrectly, then not being able to decrypt their text to enter it correctly. Also: I'd like to understand how encrypted text is handled if/when a premium user goes back to being a basic user. I'm an evernote Premium user. I use it on multiple platforms: OSX App, Ipad, Iphone, Linux (Web)
  22. I would like to suggest that you encrypt notebooks and not just notes. Let me give you an example. I created a 'Journal' notebook. The notebook has a table of contents (TOC) that links each item in the TOC to a note. The idea being that I can have separate notes for each subject, date, or idea. By encrypting the book (which automatically) encrypts all note inside, then I can have just one password for the book. The idea being that once I unlock the notebook, then I unlock all the notes. That is how it would work with a physical journal.
  23. Would you consider implementing note-level encryption, even if it contains attachments? I've seen blog posts about using Evernote to do your taxes, but I would never do that unless I could encrypt an entire note that contained PDFs or images. I don't know about anyone else, but I would really use this feature a lot.
  24. I am using Evernote on two computers, a laptop running windows 8 and a desktop running windows 7. I've figured out to "Encrypt" parts of my notes by highlighting, right clicking and choosing "Encrypt Selected Text". However, when I try to "Show encrypted text" using the desktop computer, it says that the passphrase I enter is incorrect. At first I thought perhaps I made some typos or forgot my passphrase, but the passphrase works fine on the laptop and also the Evernote web interface... Is this a bug? or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help!
  25. I logged into Evernot yesterday and today I tried to decypt my encrypted note but the password I knew well didn't work. I logout and logged in again , then it worked. Before logging in again I tried typing password somewhere else to see if caps lock or something wasn't turned on but it was all ordinary. a bug? I made me worried about my important encrypted information. using Windows 7 64bit, Evernote v4.5
