  1. I'm a huge, raving fan of Evernote - I rely on it to a huge degree - and I'm hoping that the Evernote team is working on some improvements along these lines: 1) The method of encryption is clunky. It's so bad that I've taken to putting all of my data into one card and encrypting the whole thing. When is notebook-level encryption coming? 2) The Windows application needs to have the same security as the mobile apps; an additional layer (PIN code, etc.) 3) After being abandoned by SafeWallet, I'm eager for a digital wallet solution that will be around for the long haul. Evernote could add simple templates, and the above-mentioned notebook-level encryption, and add a whole new level of functionality to their service (without being a distraction from their core mission) Anyone else been asking for the same things?
  2. i am a premium member and love Evernote and penultimate on my mac,ipad and iPhone. However, once Evernote Touch has been installed on a windows 8 dashboard on a PC, there is no way to sign out or pass-code protect the info. Deleting Evernote Touch is the only shield. The PC is a work device and I.T has remote access at times as do others. Evernote has both business and personal info that i do not want staff to have access to. Evernote was going to be my business method of sharing and organizing work life as well but unfortunately i will be deleting Evernote Touch until it has a sign out feature or pass-code feature as the OS and ios have, and looking towards the competition. - imploring that Evernote Touch developers address the importance of a pass-code or sign out feature for its windows 8 users. sincerely and hopeful dv
  3. Snowden's documents revealed that the internal traffic between Google's data centers (and Yahoo and others) has been spied by the NSA. Now Google, Yahoo and Microsoft want to encrypt the traffic between there data centers. As far as I know, Evernote has also two data centers and all the data is mirrored. So my question is: Is the traffic between Evernote's data centers encrypted?
  4. I recently had cause to reboot a Windows 8 laptop using the Change Settings option "Refresh your PC without affecting your files". Long story short, there was an OS issue which made it unusable without a serious house clean, and those nice folks at Dell suggested a Refresh would be a good idea. According to the Win 8 settings "If your PC isn't running well, you can refresh it without losing your photos, music, videos and other personal files" (my italics) So I went ahead and did that - and lost Evernote and my database folder. As far as I can tell all my other data files are still there (I had rather a lot - it'll take weeks to notice if there are more problems) but all the apps that I had installed, from Chrome to XnView are gone. OK - I can live with that. It's a bear having to reinstall, reauthenticate and glue everything back together, but as long as I have my data... and I just had to rebuild everything anyway on a(nother) laptop I bought as an emergency backup device. I kept a list, with links (guess where). Sadly the same can't be said for my database - even with hidden folders on show, there's no AppData folder for /Evernote/Evernote to be inside - I guess because I have no apps either. While I can re-download the synced database, I had some stuff in a local notebook too which was a bit critical... Well I also had a backup, so no long-term hassles; but it still puts a(nother) crimp in your day. Still the moral of this story is: if you refresh your Win 8 setup for any reason, you really REALLY need a backup of your database. Major HT to the Evernote Devs however - when I had less than my current database-full of notes and last tried the download-from-scratch route, it took about a week to get all my notes back. I've now done two rebuilds in a week and I reckon it takes about 8-10 hours (17,000 notes). That's a vast improvement on previous performance, and (almost) takes all the sting out of reinstalling! Thanks guys!
  5. http://heartbleed.com This is a pretty serious vulnerability in OpenSSL which leads to discovery of private keys, logins, passwords etc. Are Evernote servers affected? Are you taking any steps to mitigate this? I rely on Evernote for everything and this makes me worry a lot.
  6. (Thread updated to reflect our blog post here) On Monday of this week, a group of security researchers discovered and publicly disclosed a vulnerability in OpenSSL, a software package that is widely used to secure online communications. They called the bug Heartbleed. Evernote does not use, and has not used, OpenSSL, so we were not vulnerable to this bug. As an Evernote user, you don’t need to take any action. Some of the services that we use, for example, our support ticketing system, do use OpenSSL. These services have all fixed the bug. We do not believe that any sensitive data was accessed. We are actively monitoring the situation and will notify you if we discover anything.
  7. Not sure how useful or relevant this might be, and I'm just downloading a trial myself; but for those sending files to the Cloud (and I saw a definition of the Cloud today as "Someone Else's Computer") in a newsletter I subscribe to, Fred Langa is suggesting 'pre-encryption' as the new new big thing. He uses Boxcryptor.com as the example. Note that you're uploading an encrypted, so by definition unindexable and unsearchable, file. But if you really, REALLY don't want to share the contents.. How is this different from all the other encryption software already out there? No clue.
  8. I like to share but sometimes I need to be more secure! Sharing my data stored in Evernote with those who don't use Evernote sounds useful, however is this funcationality any better than publishing the information on your own blog site and linking to that instead? I know Evernote provides a link which cannot be searched by the likes of Google but is that enough? The link can be circulated to any party without sight of who is accessing it. You could adopt a policy of only sharing data already in public domain. Things that can be done to improve data control. 1. Link expiry. If you no longer wish to share, expire the link. Currently doesn't exist in Evernote Business but should be a straight forward win. 2. Use certicates to encrypt. Present an access log to my data. e.g. Reporting back on certificate use and data decryption, when, where and who. The recipient of the link would follow a simple registeration process, create an account, access the data. Now if I no longer wish to share the data I can revoke the certificate and stop decryption. None of these exist in the Business product yet they would improve the security of the service.
  9. Other companies are fighting back against the NSA by using harder-to-crack code to shield their networks and online customer data from unauthorized U.S. spying. Companies such as Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple. It would be reassuring to see Evernote's name added to the list and increase their security from the rather archaic and easily broken 64-bit RC2 to a more robust 256-bit AES. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-11-15/silicon-valley-nerds-seek-revenge-on-nsa-spies-with-super-coding.html
  10. I've sent a message to the support team, but for reasons beyond the scope of this email, I'm a bit concerned so asking here as well. Evernote is always ON on my computer (I'm the only one with access to it), and on my phone (needs a pin number to unlock). Today, I had to look into my account settings to remember my account name, etc, and noticed that my email had changed to an email I would have never dreamed of on my own, and a somewhat derogatory email handle on top of that... I changed it back to my real email, but how the hell did this happen?
  11. I use the EN desktop app and Android apps on my mobile devices. All of these require me to login only once and saves my login info so I can launch the apps without having to manually log in with every launch. Would enabling two-step verification change that?
  12. It just dawned on me that my notes may potentially reveal my geographic location/location history when we share them. In testing the public links, location isn't shown within the browser, but what if we were to "Save to Evernote"? Does anyone have knowledge on this?
  13. I received a phishing attempt today that purported to be from Evernote. The subject line of the email was "Image has been corrupted" along with part of my name in the subject line. The scam came from "Evernote Share." The body of the email read in part, "Image has been corrupted. DSC_76284927.jpg 884 Kbytes." I've attached a screen shot of this email. The email contained two clickable links.
  14. I've decided recently that I'm going to store some personal information in an EN note, which I've encrypted with EN. If I lost this info, it would suck, but anyone that can log into my EN account (anyone on my phone or my computer) could delete this note. I want to set a passphrase for the note that causes it to be immune to deletion without the user first entering the passphrase. Is there a way to do this?
  15. When the Web Clipper Extension 5.9.15 is installed in Safari 6.1, the https security button is not shown after a web page is loaded. The security button only appears while an https page is loading, then disappears. It does continue to appear on some sites (Apple.com). Unknown whether https security continues to work when the button is not visible. Disabling the extension solves the problem.

  16. Hello! AFAIK, EN uses RC2 encryption to encrypt text which is not very secure any more. A post in 2008 said that the reason for this "weak" encryption is the fact that US Government doesn't allow the export of stronger encryption. Do you have any news about this topic? Do you plan to support AES 256 encryption in the future? evernote-fan
  17. I use a work laptop running Windows 7; I've always used a personal laptop as well, but now I'm interested in minimizing my backpack poundage and want to run Evernote on my work PC. If I download Evernote to my work PC, is there any way to exclude it from my employer's daily backups to the server? My employer is progressive and I don't think they're interested in my Evernote data, but I do want to keep it private.
  18. First, sorry if I duplicated existed topic, but I didn't find anything after quick look. I'm a big fan of Evernote since I started using it years ago. And still I cant get why is it restricted that much for free users? I really think that offline notebooks and a PIN-code protection are the essential things. I cant really say about two-step verification... What people actually should pay for in my opinion is bandwidth, when Evernote servers are actually being used. The leak of above features are forcing me to look for alternatives. Besides, PIN is a feature that exists almost everywhere now. I guess I used premium for about year and I dont really think I will pay for things that are essential anymore (I payed only because of them). Thanks.
  19. 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
  20. 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?
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. I have some questions about the security issue of a note link. Note link is often used to make an 'Index'. but if I use a note link, one URL is generated and anyone who knows the URL can access the link. 1) if the contents of the note is a confidential one, I think it is dangerous to use this note link. even though only the one who know the URL can access the link, I think the note is already open. What do you think of this issue? 2) Can this note with a note link be googled? I think this is the worst case. At the moment, I don't use note link for the confidential contents.
  25. Hi all, so I turned the two step authentication on. So every time I want to access my acount on evernote.com I have to enter a pin, which is being sended by textmessage. So far, so good. But what I don't understand is should this also not be the process when I access Evernote on my smartphone? I have turned on the tickerbox in the menu, pincode, but that's something else.I used that for a long time. I'm a missing something?
