How secure is Keychain. Is it prudent to store my passwords, bank info and such there in the secure notes section (under a different keychain and different password than the login)?
Can someone hijack my computer through my internet connection (broswer, network,...) and gain access to my data? Not as concerned about somebody stealing my laptop, since I'll be aware that it has been stolen and can take action. How prevalent is remote data theft by the way?
Have read threads on this topic but I am still a bit confused on where the possible breach could occur.
Had to switch to a new machine and lost all application data..I have a backup on external HD but it is Mavericks and I am Yosemite. All I want is the info from the Notes application on my backup.Any way I can connect external HD and just grab the data stored within Notes application on the backup?
i sync'd my iphone 4s with my iTunes but my notes have sync'd from iTunes and my recent notes from the phone disappeared? My Notes from my phone have everything in it mostly all info like all user names and basically everything i need for work! How can i get my recent Notes back on my phone?
Not sure why this is happening, but each time I try to use my "notes" app on my Mac... it crashes. It simply will not open. I have no issues using "notes" on all of my other iOS devices (iphone, ipad)... but simply will not work on my iMac computer.
I have been using the same iPhone 5s, iPad mini, and Retina MacBook Pro since at least October of last year (when the 5s came out) and have had no problems syncing notes until recently (not sure of the exact date, but at least a few weeks).
Mac is running 10.9.4
iPhone is on 7.1.1
not sure what the iPad is on, don't have it with me right now but it is syncing fine.
My problem is that my notes are not syncing to or from my Mac. They sync to and from the iPhone, iPad, and iCloud.com perfectly, but the Mac is not doing anything. I have deleted and signed back into my account on every device and the notes are sill not syncing. The iCloud account is also the only notes account on the computer. I use notes frequently and need them to sync between devices.
My son's school wipes the hard drive of their computers every year when they upgrade. I made a copy of my son's entire hard drive (10.8) before turning the MacBook Pro in to be "updated" (wiped and everything replaced with 10.9.4). Now my son has told me he made Notes he needs. what files do I need to replace from the backed up version of his system? I need to know how to locate the old files that I can not access by holding the option and going to the library etc because the old system files are on an external hard drive, not an active older mac.
I assume there is more than one file. We have not made any new Notes, so I'm OK to completely overwrite the new notes files with the ones from the older version. if there is any way to simply open the notes so I can copy and paste into Word, that would be fine too.
when I try to securely empty the trash it tells me some items are locked and asks to continue with all? If I indicate yes, it stops and says I don't have permissions for all files. the files that remain are mainly old apps and .mp3 from iTunes.How do I fix these permissions to get them deleted?
Notes is not syncing to my iCloud account, but to an old MobileMe account which I cannot remove. The MobileMe account does not show up anywhere else except in Notes. In Settings I confirmed my iCloud account is logged in. I feel like this is more of a bug than anything else. Can I reset Notes or reinstall Notes? The computer is an older Mac Pro and has gone through many software updates...
can anyone suggest an mac os x app (or mac os x-supported software like OpenOffice et cet.) that will allow me to create marginal or anchored notes in a text document?
i am not interested in MS WORD, not out of any ideological dislike of gates or ms word, et cet. (although i do not like word), but i am tired of paying steep prices for it and upgrades and wish a simpler program for someone who writes, period. i do not need 90% of word's features (although it, and openoffice alternative, does have the "insert note" on reviewing toolbar i like - see below)
if anyone is familiar with what is called "critical apparatus", it would allow me to add what are essentially footnotes in a visible (Jer's Novel Writer) or invisible (WORD and OpenOffice) notes to the text. (btw: here is what i mean: [URL] and click on screenshot at bottom right of screen)
such a feature would be immensely helpful for some translation projects i am doing as well "to check" reminders within creative projects, from essays to novels.
i may be wrong but i don't think bookmarks are what i want and i prefer to avoid footnotes or endnotes (yes - i am selfish. i want it all) although a footnote is not so terrible a work-around.
i have looked at following options in respective apps:
postit/stickies type note - openoffice has a WORD type feature (like the critical apparatus popup window in url above) which is accessible but i would love to have a smaller simpler program to do this
marginal notes - i love Jer's Novel Writer for this but if you write a long note or lots of notes anchored to the same small stretch of text, these marginal notes become cumbersome and piled on top of each other in the margin, unless there is a way to do this i am doing wrong. (am open to suggestions how to use JNW better. i have not written to Jer - maybe i'll do this)
flags: supernotecard has flags but limits them to one per card where a card is funtionally synonomous with a paragraph. thus one can not annotate multiple words in same paragraph with individual markers
links: i am using DEVONthink more and more as a word processor with its multiple windows, database/search/concordance capabilities and extremely rewarding flexibility. i could use their links to separate windows but don't like this as much.similarly voodoopad does this well but same objection
separate windows: many programs facilitate a new window that could hold my notes. they are not anchored or easily tied to the text in question without altering the text, e.g., DEVONthink, Smultron, et cet.
i think i have looked at almost everything, i think, e.g., supernotecard, notemind, nova mind, tinderbox, notetaker (which i love), ulysses, avenir, z-writer, scrivener, smultron, textwrangler, subethaedit, mi, copywrite, bean, textmate (a great "project format" for composite documents like journal or book with chapters), mellel, mariner, JNW (which i also love), nisus, tex-edit plus, all the omnigroup apps, journler, storyist, writeroom, abiword, but may have missed something. programs like curio (which i like, along with omnigrapple pro) and mindburn are not really what i need either.
i guess if i knew enough i could write an applescript within some of these programs. but i am not very facile with scripting and do not want to take the time to become so. i do not think TeX et al. are the way to go and the same comment about time versus learning curve applies.
i have a Mac Pro (Lion), MBP (Mavericks) and iPhone (iOS8).
does keychain simply overwrite an existing keychain password if you enter one MANUALLY from another device? i mean, say i get to a site that has data entered into keychain and i enter it manually does it save this info and pass it along to other devices?
ALSO, i got an error on a password when i clicked autofill on my iPhone. is there a way for me to FIX this problem in keychain from my iPhone if i know the password? i mean, can i enter the info MANUALLY somehow and have it saved and passed to other devices?
I keep getting a message "wants access to your keychain" but the process asking is not identified. I think it is a process called usbmuxd which I understand is fine but even when i say allays allow it keeps popping up.
In Keychain Access I have a number of passwords for WiFi networks I am never going to use again. (Hotels etc) So decided to delete them.
I can delete the entries with an iCloud designation (have to type in an admin password etc) but when I try to do the same thing to the same entry but with a System designation - as soon as press "delete" the application quits. Happens every time - no matter what the item is. For some reason the Application just doesn't like me trying to delete System designated passwords!
