Evernote has rolled out a new security feature, two-step verification. It adds a new layer of security to your Evernote account: With two-step verification turned on, even if somebody has your password, nobody will be able to get in to your notes if they don’t also have your mobile phone.

Two-step verification is not for everyone, but it does make accounts that use it more secure. Other mainstream apps and companies now offer two-step verification, such as Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, Google, Dropbox, and Twitter.

A team at Evernote has been working on two-step verification here for months. One of the key people on this project was Seth Hitchings, our VP of Platform. He’s the guest today on Evernote Talks. If you want to know more about our implementation of two-step verification, how it adds security, and who should and should not use it, give this interview a listen. It’s about 20 minutes long.
