EverNote Will Soon Use a Two-Step Authentication

Evernote has shared plans to add two-factor authentication to its login process. Last week Evernote was the victim of a hacking attack that threatened many users personal data that lead to a subsequent site-wide password reset.

The new security measures will be available to all of the site's 50 million users beginning later this year. It's too early to say exactly how the Evernote team plans to implement the new security feature, whether through a dedicated app or text message password, but given the service's scale, we can likely count out a hardware fob option, at least. For now, your best course of action is to create a secure password.

As an Evernote user I'm glad the company is taking steps to better protect its users.
