  1. Hi! I have tried to reach out to the Evernote team about this earlier, but I got no response. So now I will try here instead. If you press Cmd + space on your Mac, you can search for everything on your computer. And if you have Evernote installed, you can search for everything that's been written in Evernote, even if you're not logged in. Because when you do that search (on the Mac), you get a little preview/thumbnail that shows the some of the text that's been written in Evernote. In my case, I had a note with passwords in Evernote. And when I searched for the word "password" on my Mac, a small thumbnail showed up and revealed the first password in that note. And I had Evernote installed on my work computer, and even though I'm the only one using it, other people can access my computer when I'm not at work. This is a MAJOR privacy conflict in my opinion, and I really hope you will fix this as soon as possible. I have now uninstalled Evernote from my work computer until this bug gets fixed. Because this this is not good at all.
  2. Why, when I log into Evernote.com to access my data, is Evernote trying to set third party cookies to DoubleClick.net and Tealiumiq.com? DoubleClick is an ad tracking company. What are they paying you for when I open my notes? I am not sure what Tealiumiq is even after going to their website. I am continuing to block their cookies, and uBlock Origin is blocking DoubleClick scripts.
  3. 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!
  4. Currently, it's only possible to get a two step verification code via text message or Google Authenticator. it’s important to keep my accounts as secure as possible, so I was really happy when Evernote announced that two-step verification is available to all Evernote users. I enable it immediately. But now i’m forced to use Google Authenticator. I’ve had to switch to Google Authenticator to copy my one-time-paswsword and quickly switch back to Evernote to paste it before it expires! It’s very stressful. For all my other accounts (that use two steps verification) I simply use 1Password (build in time-based one-time password (TOTP)). Only for Evernote I’ve had to install the Google Authenticator App. Hopefully Evernote will supports the time-based one-time password (TOTP) feature of the 1Password extension, so I don’t have to worry about it anymore.
  5. Recently a study from Princeton analysed what is called session replay. Oversimplified, it is a third party company acting as man in the middle between your PC and the website you are visiting, which then tracks and stores every mouseclick and keystroke to help the site owner analyse their website. In order to do this, everything you type is not only stored at the website (like for example Evernote), but also on the servers of the analytics company. Obviously this poses a significant security issue. Or like one of the researchers from Princeton puts it: "Collection of page content by third-party replay scripts may cause sensitive information, such as medical conditions, credit card details, and other personal information displayed on a page, to leak to the third-party as part of the recording," Steven Englehardt, a PhD candidate at Princeton University, wrote. "This may expose users to identity theft, online scams, and other unwanted behavior. The same is true for the collection of user inputs during checkout and registration processes." When Walgreens was caught red-handed, they stopped using those third parties https://www.wired.com/story/the-dark-side-of-replay-sessions-that-record-your-every-move-online/ as the risk was far higher than potential benefits. Evernote was also "featured" in this study, and was caught using one of those analytic providers ("hotjar"), potentially storing everything you enter in your notes on a non-Evernote server on a Malta jurisdiction. Funny enough Evernote just changed the privacy policy just a few months ago to highlight that indeed they were using those services/scripts. And Evernote highlighted how you could opt out. You canot opt out in Evernote. But read the instructions on the service provider's website. Dear Evernote, really? You put so much effort in providing a secure environment? And then you put it all at risk and allow a third party to record everything I do? Every word I type? Record it on their servers? Just for the benefit of optimising your web-design? Seriously? I would suggest you read these forums, there are enough suggestions to optimise your product to keep you busy the next few years, like getting rid of the upgrade button if you are a paying user... After the discussions around your last privacy policy update, I no longer believe this to be a mistake, I think this is a mindset issue. You put so much effort on improving your product, that you miss out on the basics. I understand that AI is more sexy than privacy. But I would have hoped you would not miss out on the basics. This really was the straw that broke the camel's back. So today I have cancelled my subscription.

  6. I am a "premium" user, which means I pay to use Evernote. I suddenly realized Evernote is running analytics on its pages, which makes me wonder how much of my behavior on the site is recorded and fed into the Algorithm. I realize Google and others made the internet "free" (as in "free to rock the chain") by taking personal information, instead of money, in return for their products. I am not sure I feel OK both paying in money AND information, though. Can one opt out of the analytics? Cheers, Tomas from Sweden
  7. 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.
  8. Since Evernote bills itself as a place for your whole life -- work and personal -- it would be great if there was a way to have more privacy features. Specifically, I often use Evernote in meetings - usually sitting in tight spaces with nosy neighbors, sometimes even projecting my screen for everyone as I present. It's way too hard to hide the titles and contents of my other notes! I mean, do I really want to open up Evernote to show off my "Ideas for new widgets" note and inadvertently share with my colleagues that I have recent notes titled "Co-workers I hate," "Viagra receipts," and "Bankruptcy Resources"?? You'd think a solution would be as simple as an option to collapse the Notes pane or "only display notes tagged 'Work' or....
  9. 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
  10. I've been reading Evernote security and privacy pages and I'm not sure if notes are been deleted from their servers. It's privacy page (https://evernote.com/legal/privacy.php) says: So I understand that "deleted data" is really wiped out after one year (they keep database backups for one year). But it's security page (https://evernote.com/security/) says: Does that mean that note's data itself is still in their databases but it's not linked to my account? If I have my CV in a note and I delete it, it doesn't matter if they only remove the "links" (or id column, whatever) to my note. Al my info would be accessible if somebody access that database. Have I misunderstood that phrase? Is data really removed (after one year)? I suppose that only evernote members can know/answer this, so I'll cross my fingers
  11. When someone searches on the Google App for a word that I have used in one of my Evernote note title..then that note shows up on the search suggestions. And there is no option to disable it.
  12. Hello guys, I'd like to suggest that you remove the need for full read&write to photos on iOS11. A new option is now available that can give you "Write only" permission. Since this is a scanning app, the base use case is completely covered (take a camera shot then save it to the camera roll). I'd feel much better if this was the case in this era of zero privacy. I gave the same suggestion to Microsoft Office Lens, hope you guys are quicker. Thanks
  13. I've grudgingly accepted that Google Calendar is the only way for our team to keep track of what we're scheduling when. Oh, how I wish there were a full-function EN calendar! Whining aside: I understand that when I create events or reminders in EN, it will sync with the gcal. But I have private notebooks as well as shared notebooks in my EN. I want only the events/reminders from my few shared notebooks to show up in the team calendar. I've poked around looking to set that restriction, but haven't found it. Is it possible? Thanks!
  14. 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!
  15. Hello, Evernote still cites the Safe Harbor program on their website (https://evernote.com/intl/de/legal/privacy.php) but it doesn't exist any more? When will Evernote be part of the EU-US-PrivacyShield (https://www.privacyshield.gov)?
  16. Hello! I am new to Evernote. Would someone answer a few questions? 1. Is there no ability to create a notebook cover? 2. Is there ability to organize notebooks that are in the stack? 3. What is this "deeper more powerful search" offered in the premium services and how exactly does the search differ using the plus service and the premium service? 4. In creating a notebook, I saw the ability to share it but there was no ability that I saw to make it private. Can I assume then, that it is private by default? 5. Is there no customization of paper in the notebooks? Thank you!
  17. I'm using the official Evernote for Android app, and I just noticed when reviewing my Google Account history, that Evernote is notifying Google each time that I open a note on Android, including the note title and its URL. You can see this in your own Google account by visiting this URL: https://myactivity.google.com/item?product=1&q=evernote (see attached image for an example) While I realise that I have at some point explicitly opted in to Google's "Web & App Activity" feature (it's one of the things Google tries hard to get you to agree with when setting up an Android phone), and that this feature says it will "Save your search activity on apps and in browsers", I would not expect that my notes would be party to this. This isn't happening by accident — Evernote has explicitly built Android "app indexing" into their app to allow this to happen. Of course, I can disable "Web & App Activity" on my Google Account, but I would not expect that Evernote would even try sending my sensitive note titles to Google APIs, unless I gave my explicit consent. I can't see where this is covered in the Evernote privacy policy. Certainly "We have your explicit consent to share the information" doesn't apply, though perhaps the vague clause saying "We need to share your information with Service Providers who process data on our behalf in order to operate and improve the features and functionality of the Service" could apply, if you argue that sharing note titles with Google is improving the "features and functionality" of Evernote — for me it's not. In the following section, Evernote says "We do not share your account information or user activity history with third parties for the purpose of enabling them to deliver their advertisements to you." — but this doesn't apply to Google, as they explicitly say in their privacy policy "We try to show you useful ads by using data collected from your devices" Could we please have a way to opt out of this, some transparency about why this feature is enabled, and exactly how the privacy policy applies to this? Thanks
  18. I've been an Evernote user for a long time now (premium subscriber for more than 5 years) and after the last privacy "disaster" you have tried to implement, the only significant improvement I really would like to see really soon is a way of having seamless encryption of all our notes. I really don't feel comfortable with the possibility of employees snooping around my notes. Encryption (implemented right) is the only way to ensure this will not happen...
  19. Hello, is it possible to disable automatic login in the Windows desktop application and to make Evernote to always ask for the password? When using shared Windows users it is not possible to control the access to the Evernote personal data if I have accessed before with my account. Thanks in advance.
  20. I don't understand, how can Backblaze encrypt all your data (terabytes of it), while charging $50/yr. But Evernote, which charges about the same and only stores on average 1/1000 of the data can't encrypt all the data?? If it's an issue of size of the notes(and opening them frequently), there should be some design plan here that allows text-only notes to be encyrpted and searchable. Backblaze takes about a minute to open 4tb of data, but text-only files are extremely small in size, and should be able to be searched quickly. Or at the very least, let us make certain notes encrypted (by say right clicking on the note, and clicking encrypt). We could do these for some text-notes which we feel are private. It REALLY bothers me that Evernote doesn't take this more seriously. This is one of the most important things I'd want if not the most important.
  21. Just wondering....... https://turtlapp.com/ seems to encrypt your entire note, and even better, they can't even see the contents......
  22. As a user who stores a lot of sensitive information in Evernote, I would appreciate the capability for enhanced security beyond what is currently provided. 1) Data encryption at rest. I haven't found any information on this, but it seems to me our personal data is stored on the servers in "plaintext" form, and is only encrypted during transmission to/from the clients and servers. Are there any plans to implement full end-to-end encryption of data in all phases? I understand that Evernote needs the keys in order to support a lot of its useful features. Perhaps there could also be a user-selectable mode where only the user keeps keys locally (much like the in-note text encryption already available), perhaps compromising Evernote features but enhancing security. 2) In-note encryption for all data formats. Right now, we have the ability to encrypt text segments at will using local private keys, which is a welcome feature. I would appreciate this capability to be extended for all data types, e.g. audio, photos, and other file attachments. Are there plans to support this feature? Thanks!
  23. I wish to use Evernote for tasks regarding a potential startup and personal things. How I can be 100% sure that my content that can be action plans, requirements, comments are not read by someone in Evernote team or partners? Thank you, Antonio
  24. I want to make a proposal. I would appreciate, if EN would store the data of citizens of the EU in the EU. I know all the standard bla bla, how safe the data is. In fact it's not. Safe Harbor is over and we have now the Privacy Shield. But this is more or less the same, only with an other name. So as a non US citizen I don't have the control over my data. EN is holding the encryption keys and with the Patriot Act and FISA many people can have access to my data. And En can even be forced to keep the access secret. Some US companies even get money from the NSA for the access to the personal data of the customers. Legal backdoors. I don't know, if EN get also money for this, but after the last price "adjustment" I can imagine, that EN need badly money. Microsoft started to solve this problem by offering cloud services in the EU. This would be a feature that would be worth the price "adjustment".
  25. I enter data in evernote notes about three or four times daily via iphone. But due to an increased functionality of a computer, I update/revised the notes on my computer weekly. I am the only user of my iphone, but have several people using my computer which of course contains the synced evernotes. As such, I really wish that there was a way to password protect some of my notes, seeing that I jot down thoughts in evernote via iphone daily, which I don't want users of my computer to have access to. Without this password protect functionality, I turn to word processing programs available on my iphone. Am I right, evernote notes can't be password protected? Thanks
