According to ZDNet, Evernote's machine learning technologies are thought to include artificial intelligence hooks, such as searching with natural language queries. The policy added that the few employees who will have access to user data will be subject to background checks. They will also "receive specific security and privacy training at least annually to ensure they are up to date on the latest privacy and security requirements and standards."
As per data security measures are concerned, Evernote said they will only allow user data to be stored in environments that they consider secure. Access to these secure environments and the data stored within them is limited to only authorized employees and "we use strong authentication measures to protect that access." It also mentioned that they will regularly test the web service code to look for security bugs that might allow an attacker to gain access to an account.
Nonetheless, according to 9to5Mac, this news coupled with the recent basic account limitations and price hikes, will surely leave a lot of customers looking elsewhere to store their data. One such option is Apple’s Notes app. Apple has made it easy to migrate notes from Evernote to the Notes app. If you’re a current Evernote user, will you be sticking with the service, or do you plan on migrating elsewhere?
