  1. I use Evernote on my Windows desktop and laptop computers, and on my Android phone. I see real problems with how Evernote handles encryption, which would prevent me from buying the premium version, and perhaps cause me to switch to a different notes app. I notice that others on this forum have complained about it too, and wonder when Evernote plans to fix it. First of all, that one can only select text and have that text encrypted. I don't know if anyone really only encrypts part of a note. I guess if anyone does, they can keep that capability, but there certainly should be the capability to encrypt whole notes, rather than selected text. Sure, one can select all the text in a note, then choose for it to be encrypted. But what about when one later adds text to that note? One should be able to encrypt a note, and no matter what one adds or changes about it, that note is encrypted. Furthermore, still more serious, encryption only seems to work on the desktop program. I have an encrypted note (well, all the text was selected and encrypted), created on the desktop. I can read it on my ANdroid phone, by typing in the password. However, I tried to add to that encrypted note on the phone. That seemed to close the note, but then added extra text, which is not encrypted. I saw no way to add that to the rest of the note, which is encrypted. Furthermore, when I open that note on the desktop, that text I added on the pnone does not appear at all. It still appears on the phone, but separate, not encrypted like the rest. There really needs to be the capability to encrypt a note (on devices as well as on the desktop), and any text added to that note on any platform is automatically encrypted, part of that encrypted note. When will the encryption problems of Evernote be fixed?
  2. Hi, I have a question: how does EN deal with notes that have encrypted section when doing the History (versioning). If a text was un-encrypted at one point in the history will it be available through accessing the Note History? i.e. if someone with bad intentions comes to my note with an encrypted password can he just go to the Version History and if he's lucky find the unencrypted first verion of that note? thx :DrSnap
  3. Hi When I want to encrypt a new section in a note Evernote always asks me for an "encryption passphrase" that I've used at the very beginning of my Evernote life. I have to then enter a wrong password (i.e. anything) and then it asks me if I want to use a new Encryption passphrase? I have the option to "Try the passphrase again" or "Use a new passphrase (NOT RECOMMENDED)". With that second option I can then choose my new passphrase that i always use nowadays. My question: Why does EN always ask for this old passphrase and how can I make it stop? Thx :DrSnap
  4. We are concerned about using Evernote for our engineering team because we do not know how secure the data is...even [and maybe especially] from inside Evernote systems [your own engineers/employees. We currently store very sensitive data in the app we use for notes but would like more of the redundancy and flexibility that Evernote might give us. How is data on your systems secured? Can someone inside Evernote access the data? Even in an emergency?
  5. I set up an encrypted note on the Windows based client with a password and I can edit it fine, no problem. However, when I use the latest android client, after I enter the password, it opens the note up but I cannot edit it. When I touch the pencil it immediately goes back to the encrypted note. Is this a bug? I have the latest android version as of today by the way.
  6. I'm trying to get proactive with my Evernote security. I'm taking steps to protect my info. Evernote is such a good system, but I feel much better if I can know that as much of my data as possible is protected. Now that I have two factor authentication enabled, I feel much better, but I still believe that my sensitive info deserves encryption. I have begun the practice of encrypting these files before I upload them. While it takes away the search functionality of evernote, its an easy enough workaround to make it searchable by just adding the right tags and notebooks. My Laptop workflow works like a charm. Doxie Go Scanner-->Import-->Local Encryption-->Export to Evernote. I'd like to have the same ease when I import PDFs onto my iPad, but the problem is, I cannot seem to find a way to encrypt a PDF on iOS. Good Reader does allow you to protect files within Good Reader, but as soon as they are exported to Evernote, it seems they lose their protection. My question is: Does anybody know a way to encrypt PDFs on iOS and export them to Evernote? Thanks, -S
  7. Not sure if this is a good place for this, it is really a feature request. I think it would be great to have an option on a note that would encrypt / secure a complete notebook.
  8. Hi Great tool! I´m planning to store some personal information - bank-account pincodes etc. - in some encrypted notes! Then i´m wondering - how strong is the encryption in Evernote? I don´t know much about the tecnical details of encryption, so - please - express yourself in plain language! Lars
  9. Hello, I use Evernote desktop application in Windows 7 64 bits and in Android phone. I just found out reading in Evernote Knowledge online help that there's little or no good encryption support on local Evernote databases.. with some people sugesting the use of 3rd partir softwar to enforce encryption. From what I just read I remember 2 main ideas: a) Only use online access and *DONT* install Evernote for Windows. Seems we can encrypt notes by using option "Encrypt Selected Text.." present in menu "Format" of Windows Evernote desktop application, but.. seems its not strong enough, since it seems can be cracked in just couple seconds. I store sensitive data in my Evernote notes, and as such would like to ask Evernote community some questions, receive recomendations in how to maximize the security: 1. What way and/or software/procedures can one use to fully protect Evernote local database in a Windows 8 64bits system ? 2. What way and/or software/procedures can one use to fully protect Evernote local database in an Android mobile phone ? Thanks, Zen
  10. Is there a way to encrypt a whole notebook? I want to scan ID cards that I don't use often and upload to a notebook in Evernote (i.e., store frequent buyer cards, Friends of Library, AAA membership, etc). It looks like encryption is only for text (I'm a free Evernote user). Is there a way around this? Thanks
  11. I've been reading through lots of posts on how to make Evernote more secure. Here's one suggestion. It involves a few compromises but might be suitable for some people, particularly if you want to keep sensitive information of a business nature in Evernote and only use on personal computers and not mobile devices. The scenario is 2 laptops, both running Windows (though the solution in principle also applies to Macs). It won't work with mobiles or tablets. 1. Install DropBox on each machine 2. Install BoxCryptor on each machine. This will perform on the fly encryption of everything in a mountable drive within DroxBox. 3. Install Evernote for Windows on each machine, and put the Evernote database in a Boxcrpytor folder. 4. Use Evernote, but put everything in local notebooks, which do not sync with the Evernote cloud. Although the local notebooks don't sync with Evernote servers, their contents (i.e. the Evernote database) does sync across DropBox machines so will be kept in sync across the two machines (and any others which are added). Can anyone see any flaws with this, other than the obvious ones: 1. Can't share notes with other people 2. Won't work on iOS or Android because even though there are DropBox and BoxCryptor apps, you can't tell the Evernote mobile client where to locate its database. BoxCryptor drives can be set to auto-mount when a particular user logs in (e.g. on a home machine which has BitLocker enabled), or not (for example on a work machine where the encrypted drive could be mounted manually when the user logs in). Also protects against the work machine being stolen if the hard drive is not encrypted. The data is secure on both machines, syncs between them and nothing (confidential) is stored within the Evernote cloud in a human-readable form. I've not tried this out, but would appreciate any feedback on the suggestion. Thanks. srm
  12. Hello, I was reading an article regarding Evernote and Android encryption and decided to do some digging to understand how credentials are stored in the Chrome Web Clipper. I opened up the .js files in the Chrome extension directory to explore the code. It seems that the credentials are being stored in the same "flawed" manner as Android - using the XOR scheme. Better yet, the key is posted in the very same file for anyone to see. My question is this: what happens if some malicious website breaks into the local storage of my browser and steals my saved credentials. Given the data available in the .js files, it seems the hacker could easily obtain my password. Does Evernote plan on addressing this credential storing scheme in the near future?

  14. Hi, I have the Evernote desktop app installed on my iMac. I only have one notebook with 2,800 notes in, all of which are categorized by tags. I also have "sub-tags" within tags. I used to have many stacks with many notebooks and notes but I switched to tags as they were easier to use and search through. Recently, I had a problem with text encryption. Right clicking to encrypt text no longer works (no window pops up and the text does not become a little grey box as it used to). I considered backing up my files and then reinstalling Evernote, but I read that many who tried this get "Evernote was already installed by another user. Only one per-user installation is supported. An administrator can install Evernote for everyone after the per-user installation is removed." due to fragments left behind. Some have tried using special installers/uninstallers (Revo) to no avail. Instead, I decided to just back up my notes with an .enex file and create another user account, and then import the notes into the new account. Another user said that he was still able to use encryption if he logged into another account using the same Evernote desktop app.- see MTT here: http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/26644-help-evernote-no-longer-encrypts/ I confirmed that by logging into my wife's account from my desktop Evernote app and I was able to use encryption on her account (using the same installation of Evernote on my iMac). That shows that the problem must be with files associated with my account, rather than the desktop app itself.) Anyway, I exported the 2800 notes in one notebook with many tags on each note (as an enex.file) to a backup folder on my iMac. Then I created a new account using the same installation of the Evernote app. However, when I imported my notes into that new account, Evernote only showed 800 notes (even though the notebook view had the number 2800 below it). I also lost all my tags and many PDFs became unscannable. I realize that I have a lot of notes in one notebook and many tags too, but if Evernote allows me to do this and works perfectly well on a day-to-day basis, why is there no warning about losing tags and notes when exporting? What is the limit for one notebook? I therefore gave up on the idea of exporting my notes to a new account and decided to stick with my original account. However, that still leaves me with the original problem of no encryption. Any solutions?
  15. I have used encryption for some time and there is a bug that has been around for a while, so thought I'd post. I paste a large set of paragraphs with hard wraps inro Evernote. The text comes from text wrangler, so as to eliminate all formatting other than <CR>. I encrypt the text. When I decrypt it very strange formatting appears. It adds seemingly random <CR> here and there and I end up having to reformat the whole thing while in the encrypted mode. Thanks for your help.
  16. I would like to highlight a very serious data corruption issue occurred when syncing encrypted data between Evernote and Awesome Note. Have emailed to both Evernote and Awesome Note support. In summary, the support I've received is as below: Evernote was trying to blame Awesome Note No reply at all from Awesome Note Evernote has closed the case without providing any resolution Click below picture to view the actual case being logged.
  17. Greetings, Please forgive a noob for posting, but I cannot find any information on printing a note with encrypted text. I have a note with all text therein encrypted. Even with the note open and text displayed on screen after entering my password, only the encrypted text icon prints to paper. However, if I permanently unencrypt the contents, it prints just fine and dandy. Am I missing something? Or must I unencrypt anything I want to print even after I've entered my password and can see the content on my screen, then encrypt it again after printing?. If so, that seems rather klunky. Thanks, Mr_T
  18. Three suggestions: #1 - Item and text level password protections. There are times I'd like to make an entire item pw protected. And there are times I would like to do what EN currently lets me do - select text and encrypt that. #2 - I'd like to be able to do a global reset of the password for all encrypted texts, and to keep it simple, make it so that this affects both item-level and partial-text instances of encryption. #3 - I'd like a Calendar that let's me easily select a range of dates when items were created and/or modified. I know there are operators that let me do this now. But a Calendar would be much more convenient for me and seems like a natural for Evernote.
  19. Experiment: I create a new note. Entered the text "I love burritos". Encrypted the text Opened the .exb file with a text editor. Was able to see the text "i" "love" "burritos". Although they are separated by some tags, clearly the data is still in plaintext form. I assume this is the same data transmitted to Evernote servers. If that is the case, what is the point of encryption here? My second assumption would be that this is probably local cache. But then I closed and restarted Evernote just to see the locked version of the text. I checked the exb file again ... yeah... I can still see it in plaintext. So, it's just a GUI lock? Should the decrypted stuff (assuming the encryption was done correctly in the first place) be removed the note is "closed" (or when the GUI lock appears?). I do notice that in the iOS app, when I decrypt, then leave the app, then return, at least it returns in the "locked" form. That looks good. But I wonder, is the database file actually in plaintext anyway?
  20. The text encryption is a neat idea, but what if you make a typo when entering the password? I would feel more secure about encrypting important text if I had to type the password twice, or if there were an option to display the password.
  21. Inability to create/edit encrypted notes on Android is keeping me from upgrading to a premium account. Even if this was added, Evernote's encryption implementation would still suck. Only text within a note can be encrypted, not the entire note (e.g. embedded pictures) and the encryption password is per note not per notebook. Please consider adding real encryption capabilities including: strong encryption, not 64-bit RC2; per-notebook passwords and encrypted notebooks; encrypted notes, not just encrypted text w/in a note; ability to encrypt/decrypt across all platforms; and easy export of encrypted data (current Mac client does not decrypt notes when exporting).
  22. Hi, Evernote on a friend of mines computer stopped working with encryption several months ago. Few months ago she contacted Evernote support but since she still didn't get a reply, I thought I would try and ask in here on her behalf. She's currenty using Evernote 3.1.1 on Snow Leopard (fully updated). Problem is, when you highlight a text and right-click and select "Encrypt" (or whatever it's called in the English version), nothing happens. The text remains plain text, there's no popup asking for password or anything. The logfile does say this however: 2012-06-02 15:46:19 main [ENMLConverter] INFO: Parse success w/o HTML tidy. 2012-06-02 15:46:19 main [ENMLConverter] DEBUG: Root tag is 'span' not 'html' 2012-06-02 15:46:19 main [ENMLConverter] DEBUG: Adding 'body' tag I tried to trash the plist file and the cache, but that didn't help. Any ideas? Thanks!
  23. In my personal point of view, the value of encryption from Evernote is being portable. I want something encrypted being available everywhere - on the PC, on the web via browser, on the mobile phone, or so anywhere, without the need to install a program or depack a portable 3rd-party program. I wish the encryption function of Evernote be portable, flexible, and anywhere-available. I don't use Evernote encryption currently. One of the reasons is that it's not available to decrypt from mobile phones. So, would this feature be possible?
  24. Hello, I recently upgraded to Premium, primarily for the ability to share notebooks with the rest of my family which we all can edit and use as a centralized location to share things and keep on the same page with each other. A few of the things we are sharing are sensitive, so I encrypted them - however, I've noticed that it doesn't seem to stick with shared notebooks. By that I mean, in my personal notebooks when I access something encrypted, the moment I save the note, or move to another note, etc., it returns to being encrypted and I would have to re-enter the password to access it again. However, when I access something encrypted in a shared notebook, it stays unencrypted from then on, and I have to manually re-encrypt it (right click -> Encrypt Selected Text) to get it back to how it was. This is a hassle and compromises the security feature. I was just wondering if this is expected or known, am I missing an option to prevent this, or is it a bug/unknown error that maybe Evernote can fix? If so, submitting this as a bug report, or please kindly direct me to where I should officially submit it. Thanks. (and please, let's not get into a discussion of data safety - I'm sure many of you feel it is never safe to put sensitive information in a shared notebook with only Evernote encryption and all that, but I'm aware of the risks and am OK with them, would just like info about this problem/bug)
