You may have heard of the recent security breach at Adobe. Evernote used the online list of compromised accounts to see if any Evernote users were using the same email address for their Evernote accounts. If so, they received an email message from Evernote recommending they change password right away.
Evernote is one of the platforms offering two-step verification for user logins. If you’re keeping sensitive personal information in your Evernote collection, this is worth the little bit of extra effort it involves. The Evernote Support Center has more information on two-step verification and how to use it.
