Two Step Authentication Does Not Work

Recommended Posts

I followed steps in this article https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314238 and setup 2-step authentication. Setup was successfully but EverNote on my PC never ask me for neither password nor pass-code. I did exit/logout and no help, EverNote just opens right away, so anyone can access my EverNote easily! Need to make it works, thanks.

So I read this that you mean a Windows PC, and the Windows Client ?

If tkhis is your configuration, before guessing around I would completely uninstall EN from the PC and start it all over.

Reinstall, log in, and you will hopefully get a 2FA- dialogue this time.

I believe two step only engages when you log in.  It won't happen if you leave EN running on your PC. 

You need to File - Sign out username to prevent someone from gaining access, either with or without 2FA.  File - Sign out will force a password to be entered.  You should see the panel below when you sign out.
