  1. Have the ability to lock individual notes, e.g., a password-protected note. It's available in OneNote
  2. I installed the latest update ( Version 6.13 –455673 Direct) for MacOS and noticed Evernote attempts to connect to tealiumiq upon startup. I know that tealiumiq is used for "tag management" and advertising. Can you please answer: Why exactly does Evernote want to attempt to tealiumiq's servers, is this connection necessary for the application and service to function properly, what data is sent to tealiumiq, how long is this information stored at tealiumiq, is it shared with any other organization, and is it used to advertise or market to users in any way? Thank you.
  3. I can't image this has not been requested in the past, but I want to request encryption support for the Evernote client database (.exb). Currently the synced content is readily available in the clear and an account password is not needed to access it. All it takes is for someone to set up a temp Evernote account, then rename the target .exb database filename to match the name of the temp account and bam... they have the data. No password required. Massive concern in today's world.
  4. Hi, I am about to use Evernote for my personal and work. And I have some queries: 1) How secure and private are my confidential notes in Evernote? 2) Can any Evernote employee access and see my confidential notes? I know people can see my notes and things only if I give access to them but here I am talking about Evernote employees. 3) Is there any way to prevent Evernote from auto-saving into the cloud and make Evernote to save the notes on my PC? Thanks in advance. Guddu
  5. Evernote has a large page convincing people of it's security. Everybody's information is secure, right? Has anyone noticed that hacking large companies data is becoming MUCH more frequent?! Today, Equifax said that it may have been hacked again. Yahoo was hacked recently releasing info on 300 billion accounts. But here's the thing, if Evernote gets compromised, you lose a LOT more than just a username and password, you lose everything! Evernote NEEDS to adopt a ZERO KNOWLEDGE encryption, meaning that not even employees of the company can see what is on people's accounts, and if someone were to hack EVERNOTE, all they would get is encrypted info. Evernote will say that that's all people would get now, but if employees can see the data, hackers will be able to see the data. The data needs to be encrypted on the desktop, and needs to stay encrypted in the cloud. No matter how good Evernote's encryption is, it will be hacked at some point. PLEASE adopt zero-knowledge!
  6. Hi, I hope this is the right place for this. I have just set up 2 factor authentication and went through the process of setting up my primary phone number etc. I wanted to set up a backup phone number as it is suggested and is a very sensible precaution. However it won't let me put in my phone number. I get a validation message saying 'Enter a valid phone number that can receive SMS messages.' The number I am trying to use is a UK landline. I suspect it thinks it can't send an SMS message to it as it is not a mobile. All BT openreach landlines in the UK are capable of receiving SMS messages, either with a phone that supports it (as I have) or through a text-to-speech implementation. As that is the only other number registered to me, it is the obvious choice as a backup number. I don't know if that is the same in other countries or not. I'm hoping a friendly Evernote employee will read this and be able to get the validation changed. Thanks for your time.
  7. Hi everyone, I lead Evernote's security team. We have received reports regarding what appears to be suspicious activity affecting a small percentage of our users. Our team is working with individual users to better secure their accounts and our security team believes that someone has learned these users’ passwords from a website or service not associated with Evernote. If you, or the people in your network receive an email from Evernote mentioning that we’ve detected suspicious activity, please know that this is not a hoax or spam message; it’s from us. To more quickly notify our customers in the future, we will roll out a new feature that will notify customers when we detect a new login from a new location or device.
  8. Hi, I use Google Authenticator in the past and then change my phone. I would like to enable Google Authenticator on my new phone but cannot find the barcode to scan. My question is How to re enable Evernote on the Google Authenticator app? Imagine you are traveling and cannot get the code by phone. All your travel information are in Evernote and you log out by mistake. You will be in big trouble, right?
  9. I updated my Evernote account password via web account management and now my notes won't sync from the Windows PC client software. It's like different Evernote security/authentication servers are in use, and the sync between them is not working, or working abnormally slowly. Or a flag got set on my account because two different sets of passwords don't match. I don't know what the real deal is. The only way I can sign into the Windows PC client software is with my old password. When I try to use the new password, I am told it's an invalid password. I have logged out of everything Evernote multiple times on both my phone and the Windows client software. I can get into my web account management portal, I can access my notes in the Windows PC client. I just cannot make sync work now that my password has changed. Do I need to revert back to my old password? I would prefer not, but if that's what I have to do to get it to work, please let me know.
  10. Hi, finally I could reach you, My issue is that when I open the app, it takes a second to ask the password. Until then all my data is visible. So what's the point of securing it with anything if anyone can have as many glimpses as the wish for? There could be also a more complicated password option and for some people even 2 factor authentication could be a choice. The latter for premiums. Thank you for your time, novroax
  11. Hi - I just got an email saying, " You recently attempted to send an email message from your Evernote account. Unfortunately, we are unable to deliver the email to your intended recipient(s). " However, I didn't try to send any such email (there were 2 of them, both with the subject, "Hey" Does this suggest that my account has been hacked? I also got a password reset notification from Soundcloud yesterday, saying they are resetting my password due to suspicious activity. Can someone please help me understand what's going on?
  12. I'm hoping that this is a silly question. I'm excited about the integration with Slack and Evernote, but my question is how secure is it? Meaning, my co-workers or co-worker/Slack admins can't access my personal Evernote even though I have connected my Slack account with my personal Evernote? I love being able to save Slack "clips"/ my working discussions with my Evernote for record-keeping, but am worried about co-workers or others browsing my personal Evernote which, like I said, I connected to my work Slack. Thanks for the help. I couldn't find any info online... I am sure that this connection would never be engineered this way, but thought I should ask.
  13. Has anyone found a way around the fact that you can't edit text inside an encryption? I have encrypted account information in a note that I'd like to space out and bold the titles to and it's super frustrating that all I can add are spaces because it's super wonky when on a phone.
  14. How do you change your email address on your account or profile. I have gone to help page and it tells me to go to the security settings, but I can't find any security settings that has anything to do with changing my email address on my account.
  15. I have done a google search but I still don't quite understand what is going on. I started using Evernote yesterday. The email address I signed up with is my main email address and I don't wish to use it with Evernote - I wish to change it to one which I don't use that often (just in case there is a security breach!). Which I have done (using the Windows Evernote app on my laptop). I also have the Android app on my smartphone. The Evernote app on my laptop is still showing my old email address, but when I hover over my old email address it shows the new one I changed it to. I want it to show the new email address all the time - I don't want to see the original email address when I first created an account with Evernote. The other problem is that my username is the first part of my original email address which I don't want - do I need a username (what is it used for?) and if I do, can I change it to something else? Everything was working as it should, syncing between laptop and mobile phone, I'm just wondering if I have messed something up and if it's possible to change my email back to what is was originally (which I don't really want) but if I have to then I will. Could someone tell me what I have to change and in what sequence on my laptop and mobile so that I only show one email address. What I would like is no trace of my original email address on the Evernote apps (windows and android). Do I need to delete cookies from my laptop for the old email imformation to be removed? I would also like all trace of my original email address deleted off the Evernote servers. I am most probably making a bigger deal out of this than I should, but if someone could explain what is happening that would be great. I only have basic computer skills, so please be patient Thanks
  16. I have been an evernote user since 2010. Most of that time I have been premium. Somehow I have ended up with TWO evernote accounts . One is linked to my correct email that I have used for almost 10 years. The Premium account is linked to an email that is non existent. I can log into both accounts. I want to have one account that uses my correct email but when I try to change it....I get "email already in use" Evernote keeps trying to get me to verify the bad email address......of course I cant log into it ..... I believe evernote is sending email to the bad email. Help Please
  17. I usually add a tag "public" every time I make a note public I can then go through and prune public links every now and again. Would love this to be automated. So I could automatically see which notes were potentially viewed or shared by others. Colour coding would be ideal.
  18. I'm considering using Evernote, but before I make the plunge, I want to understand the following - How do you protect the confidentiality of data at rest? Do you support, or have plans to support multi-factor authentication, e.g., Google Authenticator? Thank you!
  19. Hello, Anybody knowing why Evernote does not pass the brute force test in the DashLane test? https://blog.dashlane.com/dashlane-password-power-rankings-2017/ They say: "Does the website allow 10 incorrect login attempts without providing additional security (CAPTCHA, account lockout, 2-Factor, etc.)?" @Evernote: Is there a special reason or are there any plans for implementing this?
  20. Is there some way to put a password on individual notes (as opposed to encrypting selections of text)? I've searched high and low ... but cant figure out if this is possible. Thanks
  21. When I start Evernote via a shortcut on my Mac I firstly want to key in my password before the opening page with my notes become visible. I've this functionality on my i phone (Touch ID or 4-digit pin code). Momentarily the application opens directly and fully when I double click on the short cut logo of Evernote.
  22. I am constantly getting emails asking me to verify my email address using a link. I NEVER click on links in emails. I tried logging on to my Evernote account and verifying the email there and I just got sent another email with a link. This makes me think that the email is valid but I'm still not going to risk it. Is there any way to stop this?
  23. On request Evernote has issued a possibility to set a password protection lock on starting the iOS app (while being already logged in). That's nice. However, it is not secure and proves to have some flaws. When starting the Evernote app, first the last showed screen is visible shortly, but you can see (privacy-sensitive) information, if you want. After that, the passwordscreen appears. A flaw is that, when your last evernote-screen was a search-screen, the keyboard is still popped-up and covers the passwordscreen partly. I count this as a severe security issue and would like this to be solved with high priority. So not dependent of the number of 'popular votes'.
  24. Please refer to this article. In one line, it says "if your service uses 2-factor auth based on SMS (which Evernote does), you are vulnerable to have your phone number transferred and your 2-factor bypassed" https://www.forbes.com/sites/laurashin/2016/12/21/hackers-are-hijacking-phone-numbers-and-breaking-into-email-and-bank-accounts-how-to-protect-yourself/#4a2abe6f360f Suggested quick fix: Let users modify their phone number to 000-000-0000 if they are concerned.
  25. I am an Evernote Plus member and have been since college. Recently downloaded the Evernote Desktop app for Mac on a work machine and was aghast to find it downloading all of my personal notebooks, and notebooks from previous jobs, upon first sign-in. This is really a deal-breaker for me since I do not wish to store all of my personal notes on my work computer. I think the following solutions would work: Encrypt certain notebooks with separate passwords. Ability to select certain notebooks for local syncing. Keep the others on Evernote's servers. Separate "profiles" or "accounts" all linked to my original Evernote account, with different notebooks. I could just sign in with my work email address, for example. Thanks!
