Evernote is a big part of my daily workflow. I use it every day and for almost everything: from taking notes while on a call to recording the steps I took to reproduce a bug I am tracking. Just like 1Password, Evernote has its spot on my iPhone home screen. I use it all the time and it lets me be 100% paper-free.
As a developer, I restore my iPhone more than the average user, so 1Password integration has become a deciding factor when adding new apps to my workflow. Now that I can log in to Evernote for iOS using the 1Password Extension, restoring my devices will be so much easier!
If you don’t have an Evernote account yet, creating one is easier than ever now that the registration page supports 1Password. 1Password can generate a strong, unique password for you and save it automatically. Best of all, by using Password Recipes, 1Password can ensure the generated password meets Evernote’s password requirements.
Sometimes, I go to a website and try to create an account, but they don’t accept my password. They have particular rules to follow, things like maximum length, disallowing specific symbols, etc. When they don’t tell me those rules up front, I have to keep trying passwords until I find one that works.
To make sure this doesn’t happen to you when creating your Evernote account, the Evernote team is making use of an awesome 1Password feature called Password Recipes. When asked to generate a new password, Evernote passes 1Password the details of what they need and 1Password makes sure the generated password matches the requirements. Perfect passwords, every time! No muss, no fuss, no frustration. I’m so happy that Evernote has implemented this feature, making sign-up even more simple for all of their customers.
Right before I published this post, I found out that Evernote has implemented our extension’s TOTP feature, and I’m so excited to tell you about it!
In this day and age, it’s important to keep my accounts as secure as possible, so I was really happy when Evernote announced that two-step verification is available to all Evernote users. I enabled it immediately. Until now, I’ve had to switch back to 1Password to copy my one-time password and quickly switch back to Evernote to paste it before it expires! It’s very stressful. Now that Evernote supports the time-based one-time password (TOTP) feature of the 1Password extension, I don’t have to worry about it anymore. This is probably my favourite thing. Thanks, Evernote!
Just check out how great this is. After filling my email address and password, 1Password automatically enters the one-time password. So easy!
Easy as pie
When Mike Greiner told me that he added the 1Password integration to Evernote I was jumping all over the place. Since developing the app extension is what I do here at AgileBits, I wanted to hear how the implementation went.
Here’s what Chuck Pletcher (Evernote iOS Product Manager) said about the experience:
AgileBits gave us a simple, well-documented API to add this powerful feature. The developer who worked on this project, Mike Greiner, budgeted about half a week for this project, but he had it completed before lunch the first day. It took longer to make a demo video than it took to build the integration.
I’m excited to be able to add Evernote to the list of Apps that love 1Password. We’re so happy to tell you that you can upgrade Evernote today to experience the 1Password integration. If you haven’t checked it out yet, today is the best day to start! 😉

We couldn’t make 1Password the awesome app that it is today without feedback from users like you. The same is true for every app out there: developers can make better apps if they know what users want. After experiencing 1Password support in Evernote, you’ll want it in all your favourite apps. Reach out to the developers and send them to our Developer Outreach page, so they can discover for themselves just how quickly and easily they can add 1Password support to their apps.
