End to end encryptionWith privacy being the core value of Notesnook, we are building a Notes app that is richer and more powerful than Evernote but also 100% end-to-end encrypted. Being only a year old, Notesnook offers some exceptional features compared to Evernote.
Your privacy mattersWhile Evernote puts your privacy at risk, Notesnook goes an extra mile to ensure that your notes are safe and encrypted always by default. So unlike Evernote we can’t just put a privacy policy update stating that we will be reading our user’s notes to “improve the product”.
A key to a door that can be brokenBut my Evernote account has a password on it so i think it's safe enough... Yeah but that password isn't used to encrypt your data so Evernote, governments etc can anytime read all your data and notes.
Everyone is entitled to privacy. equally. It does not have to be limited to the privilaged few. In an ever-growing digital world where your privacy is compromised time and again, Notesnook's mission is to stay convenient and private for everyone.

No Official way to backup your dataWhile Evernote has no proper way to backup all your data. Notenook has a zero lock-in policy. This means that you own your data and can take it anywhere. You can easily take backups of your notes and even turn on automatic backups. You can even export notes as PDF, Markdown, HTML and plain text
Notebooks & tagsEvernote only allows notebook (single-level) or stacks (2-level) & tags (single-level). While Notesnook allows colors, favorites, pins, tags, notebooks & topics.
Built-in privacy lockWith Notesnook, you get a dedicated privacy lock that let's you stop intruders from getting into your notes even when your phone is not locked.
