  1. I have been an EN user since Beta, and became a Premium user as soon as it was offered. I do not understand why EN is lagging with simple security options, such as easy encryption of notes and notebooks. This really should be as easy as a Right-Click or selection in properties for a Note or Notebook. The existing method of selecting text in a note and then using a Right-Click option to encrypt it is cumbersome at best. Yes, it is a nice feature if one wants to encrypt only a portion of a note. That's fine. But there should be an easy way to (1) encrypt an entire note without selecting text and (2) encrypt an entire notebook. I would be willing to pay a few bucks extra a year for this additional encryption ability. Seems this should be a no-brainier for EN, both as a tech matter and as a business/profit matter.

    Trouble Encrypting Text

    Just in the last few days, it seems I've lost the ability to encrypt text that has a horizontal line, a numbered list, or check boxes (from the tools menu) in it. I can create a new note, add a line of text, and encrypt without issue. If I add a horizontal line, numbered list, or check boxes, I can no longer encrypt the text. This means I have a bunch of important notes that I'm no longer able to re-encrypt without loosing all the helpful and necessary formatting! Any ideas on how to fix this?

  3. Hello, Evernote community, We are a small team of developers and we are passionate about our new product which is Saferoom. We have been working hard to provide users with zero-knowledge encryption functionality without destroying user's productivity. We wanted to build an encryption app that will be easy to use and allow anybody protect their personal data. Saferoom is now a set of mobile and desktop that together add full encryption capabilities on-top of Evernote. It means that you work with Evernote normally, and when you need to create or view an encrypted note you use Saferoom. All the time your encrypted items are part of Evernote notes, but you can see them (e.g. decrypt) only inside Saferoom app. And Evernote is just a beginning - we want Saferoom to be like "Passbook" for your encrypted data. Saferoom encrypts whole note including all the resources - independently of the resource type and your password is stored on the device only. It also means that password cannot be restored - that is a price for true zero-knowledge encryption. Our app is available in iTunes Store: https://itunes.apple.com/app/saferoom-one-app-to-encrypt/id964858486 And in Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.secomsoft.Saferoom Saferoom Desktop for MacOS and Windows are free: https://itunes.apple.com/app/saferoom-zero-knowledge-encryption/id981600236 Windows: http://en.softonic.com/s/saferoom:windows-mac-iphone-android-windows-phone-7-web-apps/windows https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/saferoom-for-windows-81/9nblggh40cdw# And also you can use Saferoom Chrome extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/saferoom/nnphkaehepldgkjgnlnmfmpcjkklibfj?hl=en-US Here is a video demos of Saferoom capabilities: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzyNcs_NN5H_JVxZCeR1bFg/videos?spfreload=10 Any feedback is always welcomed.
  4. It's becoming increasingly important to have full encryption support in Evernote. Evernote will only encrypt text, not notes with images. Is there any ETA on this feature, as I am working more and more outside Evernote due to this limitation? There are workarounds like saferoom/axcrpt and other apps to encrypt a file, copy the encrypted text inside Evernote, and do the reverse to see the notes, but that is very hard and then there's no reason to use Evernote and I might as well store it as a file on a service which is easy access from mobile device. Services like pCloud allow zero-knowledge encryption which works very well, so I'm moving more and more of my Evernotes to files in pCloud, but pCloud doesn't really have a note-based UX. I may be somewhat on the leading edge here, but if I'm moving things off Evernote for better security, others are likely doing the same (or should be will all the data breaching happening today). Evernote seems to be falling behind here in functionality that seemingly isn't that hard to implement. Evernote could require the entire note to be encrypted when there are images which is very acceptable to me and that may make it easier for Evernote to implement it in a first release, Thanks for your consideration. I really like Evernote and I don't want to be slowly moving away for better security. Thanks, Dave
  5. Hey, this is how I am thinking to upload my notes into EverNote and wanted to hear your opinion if this is a good way or not? Writing Note in PDF -> Encrypting the PDF's using its own password option -> Archiving the PDF using 7-Zip and encrypting it using 7-Zip's 256 AES password. So, the PDF needs the password to open and to get the pdf, one has to need the password of the RAR file too. So, is this good? And is 7-Zip good for encryption? Many say 7-Zip is one of the best. Waiting for your opinion guys. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi, I have long notes and I have small notes. I see that I can only encrypt small note texts? I think we would love the LONG NOTES - ALL TEXT ENCRYPTION feature i.e., no matter how long the note is, we should be able to encrypt all the texts. LONG NOTE ALL THE TEXTS ENCRYPTION feature gives the peace of mind. Kindly consider this and you will have a LIFELONG PREMIUM customer. I like EverNote very much due to its smoothness Regards. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hey all, EverNote gives us the ability to encrypt small notes but I want the ability to encrypt all the texts of long notes too to have peace of mind. I have small as well as long notes and I can only see the encryption option on small notes. On long notes, the encryption option is greyed out. I think we would all love to have the long notes encryption feature to have peace of mind and privacy. We should be able to encrypt each and every single text in any note whether small or big. I already requested here - https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/114224-long-notes-all-text-encryption-feature/ What do you all think?
  8. How do you encrypt the content of a Note when you're using Evernote on iPad? Right click and control click are not available.
  9. Is it possible to lose a Note by mis typing the pass phrase? I've got a Note encrypted with a lot of numbers, addresses and so forth. Usually when I open it I am prompted to enter a passphrase with a reminder hint. Due to clumsiness I mistyped the passphrase. It seems to have overwritten the Note with the mistyped characters. Is it possible to get the original Note restored? What is the procedure for reverting to a Note of say two days ago?
  10. As an Evernote user who does sometimes store sensitive information in Evernote (by encrypting specific text), I would like a response from Evernote regarding this. A high profile investor in the cryptocurrency space was recently hacked ($2M USD worth). He mentioned that he did store his private keys in Evernote - but - that this information was encrypted. Based on his story, he claims that somehow someone with access to his email account was somehow able to reset his Evernote password (based on my understanding) and somehow gain access to his encrypted notes too: " I thought I was safe storing my private keys on Evernote because I encrypted them but clearly that didn’t help. I did have 2FA on my Gmail with the authenticator app but that didn’t help because my recovery email address was my college email and there is no 2FA on that. Once the hackers had access to my Gmail, they basically had access to everything" http://ianbalina.com/ian-balina-hacked-2-million-ama-live-stream-w-notes-april-24th-2018/ What I'm not clear on - is even if someone resets your Evernote password and accesses your notes, this shouldn't give them access to any encrypted information, because that is encrypted separately and as far as I know, even Evernote should not have the ability to even know your encryption password. Am I correct, or does Evernote's systems store your encrypted password somehow? I think this is important for everyone to know. If the above person's story is inaccurate then it would be good for Evernote to confirm this, as otherwise, Evernote security looks quite bad here if something like this could really happen.
  11. I've just updated to release and now can't access any of my encrypted notes.
  12. Dear Community I can't see the encryption option anymore - it's disappeared from the drop-down menu when I right-click on the Internet-based interface and also disappeared from the interface on my iPhone. Also in both interfaces, I can't any more previously encrypted text. Is it a temporary bug or a permanent loss of functionality? Thanks in advance for your assistance!
  13. Hi, I converted all my documents to electronic copies a couple of years ago, I am now looking at using Ever Note to store my documents mainly to give me a better way to search documents, but have a couple of concerns and am after some thoughts. 1. As EN doesn't offer End to End encryption I am looking at Encrypting the pdf's... and attaching them in EN (I know I wont be able to search on the contents but if I TAG well this should resolve the mostly), has anyone else used this approach and how well does it work not just on desktop but on web, mobile... 2. Corruption I have read some articles on the web of people suffering from Notes corrupting does this still happen is there a known trigger (I will be backing up my EN data folder but my backup's will only be kept for 90 days) Thanks

    Encryption Issue

    Hi, There's a small flaw in the encryption set up: if someone ever got into your account, he/she could erase the entirety of your encrypted information with one click (I just did it accidentally). If the content is encrypted, the contents should not be able to be erased without the password. Thanks.

    Request to Encrypt a Note

    I'd like to be able to encrypt an entire note, as well as maintain the current capability to encrypt specific text within a note. In the way I'd like to use Evernote, I want to create a secure note into which I'll add related content. I'd like that entire note to be encrypted.
  16. I have a couple of questions regarding the Encrypted notes. Would greatly appreciate if anyone has the solution for these 2 issues: 1- I am wondering if there is a way to decrypt an encrypted note, for which you've lost/forgotten the password for it? 2-I've noticed that whenever I am working inside an encrypted note, I can not make use of the Numbered List (1,2,3,...), or the bullet points. Please look at the attached diagram below to better understand what I am referring to. I have made 2 red boxes around the features that greys out on encrypted notes. Is there any way I can have those useful functions inside an encrypted note? Thanks in advance for taking the time and your insights!
  17. 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.

    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!
  19. Hi, I have purchased the premium version and have been using the IOS desktop version (or so I thought) on my Mac. However, when I highlight the text and right click, there is no "encrypt selected text" available for me to do encrytion. When I right click, it shows as such Look Up "I report" Search with Google Cut Copy Paste Spelling and Grammar Substitutions Speech Paragraph Direction Add to iTunes as a Spoken Track Add to Evernote But I don't find "encrypt selected text" anywhere as I see in some video online. Can anyone help me? Thanks
  20. I know the dB on client side is not encrypted, which I don't care about. Is the dB content encrypted via transmission and on server (cloud)? I'm asking because the recent updates for the Windows client has some quite serious encryption issues, losing notes, reproducing content within encrypted notes and I have had to de-crypt them for fear that feature is just not stable for now. I have always used this feature on some notes. I understand it is just an extra layer of protection and that the encryption in transmission and on server is actually good enough for protection.
  21. 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!
  22. I like the text encryption feature in Evernote but that is insufficient for a Cloud based service, used across multiple platforms, used by a great many people, especially in these times. I believe that Evernote should provide users with the ability to encrypt entire notes, including images and attachments. Please seriously consider implementing this functionality as soon as possible. To not do so, presents loyal users with a significant risk to information confidentiality and integrity, with potentially serious impact should any such risk actualize. I believe that the lack of this functionality also highlights Evernote and its community as potential soft targets. That said, the alternative for Evernote users, at this time is to simply avoid the use of Evernote for documenting, sharing, managing or other handling of potentially sensitive or critical information (including personal notes, ideas, intellectual property and any personally identifying information - as a start) if that information is in any form other than text. Over time, this gap in Evernote security may erode the need for the service (given alternatives with better security). If EN planning/dev. staff want to discuss this further, please contact me or reply to this comment. Thanks in advance. B.

    Remove encryption

    How do I remove encryption? I don't want to have to enter my password each time. I read to right click and that would be an option, but when I right click I'm just getting browser commands.
  24. Hello... So I just transferred a ton of stuff over from OneNote, as I'm in the process of converting to Evernote. I created a section for some fairly sensitive financial information, so I highlighted it all and encrypted with a passcode. After that, the cute little padlock thing appears. I basically ended up backspacing over it and now I it's gone.... pretty cool implementation of security if I don't have to enter the passcode to even delete the notes? NOT Is there anyway I can get this back. I don't feel that I should have to pay for a month or so of Premium to get my stuff back. I already deleted it from OneNote as well, so this really sucks. Thanks
  25. 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.
