  1. Hi There, I've a client considering Evernote Business. Basically, he has a security concern. Let's say he shares a notebook with Employee A, B, C, D & E B leaves the company. He deactivates B's account or is rights to the shared notebook. Will B still have access to old info on his device(s)? IE, will deactivating only stop him receiving new info, or will it also remove old info from him? Thanks for your help! Enda.
  2. I set up two step authentication a long time ago. At one point I had an Evernote code in Google Authenticator but for some reason it is not there now. To add it, I need a scannable code. If I got to my security setting, I do not see anything to generate a scannable cade for the Google Authenticator app to scan in. Nothing in the Knowledge Base on this. I keep a lot of sensitive data in Evernote so security is important. Also, I think it is total bullshit that I pay for this product and do not have access to support.
  3. That's it. I'm denying it with Little Snitch, but why does it need a connection?
  4. So .. I am sure this question has been asked before but I am wondering is there a comprehensive FAQ or web page that details (in depth) what the latest security features/functionality are with the latest release of Evernote ? I like Evernote a great deal, and I have searched for this information in the past. There are posts, blog entries, third party articles scattered here and here, and since security is generally an evolving issue - and one of great importance, I would expect that there *should be* .. would be .. something like that - a 'web page' or up to date FAQ that's updated every release. There should be right ?? Thanks - The Irshmun
  5. All—specific Evernote users will be receiving an email today about a security issue regarding their Evernote account. We’ve detected someone attempting to log in to Evernote using thousands of username and password combinations that we believe were either stolen from other services or just systematic guesses. The Evernote service has not been compromised or hacked, but we believe some accounts may have been accessed during these attempts. To protect these accounts, we’ve expired their passwords. The next time they try to log into Evernote, they will be prompted to reset their password. Unless you received an email with information regarding this incident, no further action is necessary. However, if you would like to ensure your account is protected to the fullest, we recommend that you change your password to one that you use only for Evernote and nowhere else. The strongest passwords use a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters. For increased security, take advantage of Two-Step Verification—users with Two Step Verification activated on their accounts were protected from intrusion.

  6. I've been searching around a bit and haven't found a clear answer about how secure is using a third party app connected to my Evernote. I'm looking into EverClip and am unsure what kind of access I'm giving to that app for my Evernote account. Questions I have: • Do third party app developers have access to my user/pass. (pretty sure the answer to this is no) • Do third party app developers have access to my notes? I understand the specific application will have access. But what is unclear to me is whether using a third party app will allow access to the developers. What would a developer of a third party app have access to?
  7. Problem with file YZDAJDC,EXE, It is running about 10 processes and using up a lot of CPU and memory resources. I tried to Google it but did not get a hit. The file is located in the \users\xxx\AppData\LoadLow\Evernote\dojcswor directory, that's why I assume it has something to do with Evernote. My Evernote program is not loaded at this time. I deactivated the browser clipper, but it still shows in other program toolbars such as Outlook, By doing a file search I find that it produces at least one dump file a day. Does anyone have an idea what is going on?
  8. 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
  9. I want to encrypt a note. I have 2 step verification, but when I right click on text, I don't see the Encrypting Selected Text option. I've tried loggin into my account with both Firefox and Chrome in Windows. Is this function only available to premium users? By the way, the help document below makes reference to a "passphrase" for which I don't recall any setup. Thanks, Jeff
  10. This morning I tried to get 2-factor authentication to work on the Evernote Web Clipper for Chrome, and neither SMS nor Google Authenticator codes were accepted. I came here to try to find a solution and when I clicked the Sign In link on the forums I found myself magically logged in as this user. Just one problem - I have no idea who tassiecelt is. Sir, I'm sorry if you see this as an abuse of your profile but I'm logging out immediately and I do this to illustrate that I'm not making this up. I was given the option to change your profile settings, but fortunately the email and password settings page asked me to enter a 2-factor authentication code. I'll go back to my own profile (if it'll let me enter my own login details this time) and post a follow-up message below.
  11. This applies to all OS versions, but, at present, for me, the issue is for a Mac and Android phone and tablet. I'm am aware that Evernote cannot encrypt a whole notebook for various reasons of lost functionality. I dont really accept these reasons. Its like saying "a car would be easier to start, share with unlimited people, if only we didnt have those key thingies". Anyway, I accept that I have not been able to find a way to do it with my limited skill level. Please dont anyone mention the encrypted text - it does not meet my needs in anyway. I am currently a premium customer until 11 February 2015. I have cancelled my rolling subscription and wont resubscribe if Evernote are not going to allow some way of a client side encrypted notebook; I filled the feedback form with the following "I need encrypted notebooks". 1. Is there a way that I can encrypt my notebooks, notebook at a time, on a Mac and use them on an Android? 2. What are the best Evernote alternatives, out of Beta (Turtl looks promising but carries a Beta warning) that people are thinking of using to secure their data, when their current premium subscription runs out? It's a real pity because I've really come to rely on Evernote, with multiple OS access seems to future proof it against changing hardware by users. Pommy
  12. Hello I have another user account. and I Enabled two step authentication before this. so Now when i want access to that , I need to Code from my Google Authenticator in my phone. . . . . Problem is right here::: I removed that app before this. and so now when I want Recive SMS Code via Mobile number, I can't Recive any sms or code from EVERNOTE on my mobile phone. So what can I do?? I have important Info on my another account . Please help me
  13. Hi, I've seen other post about encryption or more importantly the lack of encryption in Evernote. But I've not seen any response from Evernote in those posts... perhaps I just missed them, perhaps they don't bother to comment here. And yes - you can encrypt some text in a note. But ... The list of 'hacks' occurring is getting longer everyday and using unencrypted solutions is starting to seem foolish. I have been using Evernote since 2009, it is my brain backup and I'm feeling a bit vulnerable. I'm nearing a point where I need to decide to stay with Evernote or find a more secure solution. I truly love using the product, it is part of my daily routine and it is where I store everything. Which is exactly why the lack of complete system wide encryption is becoming really concerning. Yes it is hard. Yes I would pay more money for it above what I pay for my premium account. Based on some of the technical details I've gleaned about Evernote, my guess is that full system encryption would be a search performance hit at a minimum. Got it, tough technical problems. But what I need is a company/product that is solving these tough technical problems and has the ability to project when they will have solutions in the market that I can use. Or I need to start thinking very prudently about finding another product that is solving these hard problems. So ... to anyone who may be in the know ... Where is Evernote at with encryption? When is full system, every bit of my data going to be as safe as they can reasonably make it? (all data fully encrypted in transmission and encrypted at rest wherever rest may be). What does the product road map look like?
  14. This is worrisome. I wonder if the ability to read text messages could also include the ability to read text in the cellular Evernote Android app. Until the dust settles and the issue becomes more clear, I am deleting my Evernote Android app. It looks like Apple might be safe. Huge security flaw in mobile phone networks that could let hackers listen in on voice calls and read text messages revealed... even when cellular networks are using the most advanced encryption now available. OUCH! “It would strike me as a perfect spying capability, to record and decrypt pretty much any network… Any network we have tested, it works.” Those tests have included more than 20 networks worldwide, including T-Mobile in the United States. The other major U.S. carriers have not been tested, though Nohl and Engel said it’s likely at least some of them have similar vulnerabilities. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/12/18/german-researchers-discover-a-flaw-that-could-let-anyone-listen-to-your-cell-calls-and-read-your-texts/
  15. I just had a bad experience where Evernote allowed my company to take over my personal Evernote account - just because I associated a work email to it. They changed my account and took over personal notebooks that I have had well prior to ever starting the company that I just left. This is terrifying that Evernote would allow this to happen and never once try and contact me. I can see that it happened as it is in the logs and it just pisses me off to no end...figured I would warn others of this breach in trust. Oh and shocker that you can't find a phone number to actually talk to someone about this. Be warned!!!
  16. Good day. With all the recent shenanigans in the Internet, I wanted to go to 2FA. I am a semi-power user and have a bunch of apps tied into EN. Just wondering if anyone has some lessons learned or gotchas you could share. I have 2 Mac OS X devices, 3 iOS devices one of which is an iPhone. I never use the web client. Thanks.
  17. Since I upgraded to iOS8, the Passcode lock is very flaky. It unpredictably turns itself off and I must reset it to on. I thought this was tied to syncing with iTunes, but it really is unpredictable. This is a real security issue.
  18. Is Evernote affected by the Shellshock bug? Have not seen any statement in your webpage, blog, social media or here. I use it on iOS, Mac and Windows. More infor on Shellshock: http://www.wired.com/2014/09/hackers-already-using-shellshock-bug-create-botnets-ddos-attacks/
  19. I unlocked my computer and found a box that had popped up and was asking me for my evernote password. This shouldn't be done in this manner. It's too easy to spoof something like that with web page. The prompt needs to take over the evernote window when you open something evernote. Ty...
  20. I just had an unsolicited email from Evernote. Containing my Evernote account email address in big green type as a mailto:link. Am I overreacting or is that an especially dumb thing to do with a piece of information that I really don't want to share with anyone else? In context the email is sitting there like an annoyingly enthusiastic puppy saying 'save me into your contacts!' and 'send flight or hotel reservations!' - all of which are good things to say, but not when also waving my email address around like a brightly-coloured flag! -This seems to be the latest in a long line of 'how to' emails I've been getting since setting up a new free account several weeks ago. All part of a mini-project to see what new users learn on the way in. So far they've been helpful, but F Y I - this one isn't! Why not give me a link to look up my address -if I want to- that will require a log-in on the way?
  21. I spend a lot of time in China, and therefore have two Evernote accounts, one international and one Chinese. The main reason for the second account is that Evernote International is generally unreliable for sharing Evernote International note links into China. While it is too bad that I cannot switch between the Chinese and International accounts using a single client, I can imagine that different requirements from various governments might make that technically messy. The good news is that I can run the two Mac OS X applications concurrently. There is an issue, however. If I choose to update the Evernote Chinese OS X client to a beta release (or maybe even the next commercial release), the initial restarting of that app has my INTERNATIONAL profile loaded, with all of it's notes. It seems that if I log out, I cannot then log back into the international profile, only the Chinese one. One concern is that this type of scenario might create some sort of inadvertent security or legal issue (e.g., International profile and notes into Chinese Client; Chinese profile and notes into International Client). At a minimum, the upgrade mechanism appears not to be working correctly for either the Chinese version, International version, or both when the two versions are coexisting on the same computer. I don't mind running the two separate applications, but it will be a house keeping nightmare if every time one of the clients is upgraded, that I need to once again sort out the profile mess.
  22. I need to know if there is a way to block the access to your windows evernote app, once your laptop has been stolen (or for whatever reason) I looked this up and I know you can change your password and it will stop syncing on all the other devices (if you deactivate them), however, all the access to all the notes that were there before the password change are still there and can be accessed and downloaded. Shouldn't there be a security option that would allow you to remotely change your password and to automaticaly unlink certain devices from your account. I am not that worried about this on my iphone because at least you can protect your data a bit with a password, but all the data on my laptop's app is just sitting there.... I saw some responses (on another forum) and it seems this is not possible. Please somoene tell me it is! (and how to do it, of course) Thanks, Stela
  23. I received a highly suspicious Phising email this morning. It claimed passwords needed to be reset. DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS IN THAT EMAIL! (If you fully read the email, you'll note that it was a direct copy from an existing Evernote email, where they specifically warn you to NEVER CLICK A LINK IN AN EMAIL. The attacker had then modified the email to insert links well above the warning that they didn't even read.) If you hover over a link you'll notice it redirects to a non-evernote web site. It then asks you to ENTER YOUR CURRENT PASSWORD. If you have entered your password, you should consider yourself compromised. Had this been a serious alert from Evernote, you would have been instructed to visit Evernote from your Bookmarks, or enter it directly. At that point you should have seen a link to reset your password via email. Remember people, NEVER BLINDLY TRUST AN EMAIL. They are easily forged and companies already have established policies to verify your identity through established email accounts. You may wish to reset your password immediately, especially if you have clicked a link in the aforementioned email.
  24. I have just received e-mail notification about the hack. One of the things it says is "the hacker was able to access a hashed version of the password that you used to access our old forum in 2011, and earlier." Leaving aside the question of why they would keep historic password data, this poses a serious problem because I don't know what password I was using in 2011! Maybe my 2011 self was stupid enough to use my main Evernote pw or some other important password - I don't know. Changing all my important passwords would be very time consuming and inconvenient. Please provide us some way to test our important passwords against the hashes that were stolen.
  25. Through a chat and a support ticket, I have learned I have absolutely no way to change my Evernote password using my iPad: I must resort to the laptop. No other web service provider (site or app) I use or am aware of suffers this limitation. IMHO it is a security shortcoming. My iPad is my main computing device—even for website design, development, and maintenance—not to mention the customary email, browsing, blogging, etc. I usually whip out the laptop only occasionally for ==>its own<== routine maintenance and backups: it is secondary and incidental. The iPad (and perhaps also iPhone) need more granular administrative control over the Evernote account. I hope the Evernote developers will devote some of my Premium funding to this pursuit with due haste.
