If you use Evernote, you may have been logged out of the mobile app, or recently received an email telling you that you have to reset your password. This probably raised red flags for you because, in the social media world, it generally means that suspicious activity has been detected on your account. In this case you're correct, sort of. Evernote was recently hacked however, according to their blog update:
"In our security investigation, we have found no evidence that any of the content you store in Evernote was accessed, changed or lost. We also have no evidence that any payment information for Evernote Premium or Evernote Business customers was accessed."
That's great, but the statement goes on to say that user information was accessed, thus the need to reset all passwords even though they were protected by one way encryption, or hashed and salted. Evernote just wants to be extra careful. As the old adage goes, better safe than sorry. To reset your password, simply visit the Evernote site and tap the link at the top of the page, as seem above. Remember, when setting passwords online not to use whole words, prominent dates, or a consecutive series of numbers.
If you don't know what Evernote is, don't let this deter you from checking it out. It's an awesome cloud based note organizing system that is perfect for getting things done!
