If you, like me, use Evernote to store all sorts of information that would otherwise end up in piles of paper someone (kitchen bench, fridge, desk in study, filing cabinet), it is important to ensure that this information is secure.
As mentioned in earlier iTandCoffee blog articles, the best way to ensure the security of anything that you store online (your email accounts, Dropbox, Onedrive, iCloud, Google Drive, etc) is to set up something called two-step-verification (or two-factor authentication).
Here is an earlier article on this topic: How to stay safer online - adding an extra layer of protection.
Evernote is no exception. You should seriously consider setting up this two-step-verirication on your Evernote account.
But how do you set up this extra protection for Evernote from an iPad or iPhone?
The above article describes how this extra security can be set up using a web browser on a computer. This assumes you have access to a computer!
What is not clear is how to do the same on an iPad or iPhone (or other mobile device) if you don't have access to a computer.
If you go to the Evernote website using Safari on your iPad or iPhone, there doesn't seem to be a 'login' option. You are only given the option to 'Sign Up' or 'Get the App'.
Even if you choose the 'Sign Up' option, which provides an option to 'Sign In', you get a message saying that 'Evernote Web is not supported for iPhone Browsers' - preventing you from getting to the Security settings for your Evernote account.
I had to contact Evernote to find out how to resolve this one, and here is the answer.
Just follow the below link, which gives a page that DOES allow you to sign in to your Evernote account from an iPhone or iPad.
