mac (Archived) Localization and privacy

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I noticed that Evernote shows my localization when i click on the "i" button.

 

It also happens when i share a notebook and i don't want all readers to know my town. 

 

Is there a way to disable localization function on evernote ? I've googled it but nothing came up to me :/

 

Thanks to all

 

:)

Hi. Welcome to the forums. 

 

Go to your Mac's System Preferences > Security and Privacy > Privacy settings and uncheck the Location Services. This should solve the problem. In my account, none of my notes have location data in them. If you need to change the data that is already stored, you can go into the information (use the "i" icon) and modify the data.

Big Thank you to both of you !!

 

It really helped me.. i spend a lot of time in my evernote parameters without success and the problem was elsewhere. 

 

Just need to find a way to remove localization from all notes created before today :(

 

Again, thank you !

Glad I could help. I take all of my notes in plain text, so I have the luxury of exporting everything as html and then re-importing it. That gets rid of any metadata :)

 

If you copy a note from one notebook to another, I am pretty sure it resets the created and updated date, but the location remains the same. I am afraid that unless you are willing to export as .html and re-import, that means you will have to manually change things.
