Edit protection on mobile devices is designed to prevent accidental edits to your notes. This feature is only available in the new Evernote for iOS and the new Evernote for Android.

Enable edit protection

To enable edit protection, follow these steps.

  1. Tap the three lines in the bottom left corner to open the navigation menu.
  2. Tap the gear icon in the upper right corner of the menu and select Notes.
  3. Toggle the switch for Edit protection.

To edit a note when edit protection is enabled, simply tap the blue Edit button or double-tap in the note body.

Note: The edit button is always present, whether edit protection is enabled or not. If edit protection is not enabled, edit a note by tapping the Edit button or tapping once in the note body.
