Evernote – Keeping Up With Passwords and More

Keeping up with passwords can be a pain. In fact, keeping up with all those random notes and thoughts can also be a pain. We use Evernote cause these days making an easy password is no good; make a difficult password and keep up with it!

Evernote, Keeping Up With Passwords and Stuff

Most people need help keeping up with stuff, albeit the Jones or what have you.

This is a great application and guess what? it’s free. So rather than reading this article at length you could just go download it and learn by doing. However, if you want some tips to make the most of your Evernote experience then read away.

Tips for Using Evernote

While this application is free and great if you do not know how to use it right away you might not get the most out of it. We recommend three simple tips for making the most of Evernote. Trust these and you will never be victim to having lost your passwords again.

1) Organize Your Thoughts Into Notebooks

You know how back in high school and or college you kept specific folders or specific notebooks for certain courses? Well, this is kind of like that. Make a notebook in Evernote for specified topics.

“Oh I get it. I can make a notebook for “‘keeping up with passwords.'”

You sure can. Not only that but you can organize notebooks within notebooks (kind of like sub-folders).

2) Tag Your Thoughts

Now one of the simplest ways to find a thought, a password or some other note is to tag it.

Remember old tag words for Google. Those are useless now. These are not. Regardless of which notebook contains the note you are looking for tags make it easier to find.

For instance, consider having an account for a while. Three months pass and you have around 25 notebooks. You are looking for a certain note and cannot remember which notebook contains it.

“Where did I put that stuff. Oh, why didn’t I organize these notes better?”

evernoteTagging your notes will avoid this dilemma. Simply add a relative tag to your note and as soon as you sign in to your account you have the options to search for all notes with that specific tag. So if you have a note somewhere containing all your rarely needed passwords you could tag that note “passwords,” and such a search would take you directly to it. No fuss, no muss. Whatever muss means. Remember, do not make easy passwords; make difficult passwords and then keep up with them.

Keeping up with passwords will be a thing of the past; just tag it.

3) Create A Backup or Go Pro

Rather be safe than sorry right? Evernote is great for keeping things organized and readily accessible online. However, if you do not have a data connection it could leave you without your much needed notes. Just create a backup of important notes on your phone or hard drive or if you are truly ready to invest, go pro.

The pro-version of this free app allows for you to work offline, search for text within pdfs, etc. and (do not quote us) but we believe it may also allow for accessing earlier versions of the same notes. This way, if you make changes and want to revert back to earlier versions the option is yours.

However, the free version is great… and free.
