Frequently Asked Questions

Can I choose to connect my Google account for only certain/specific purposes (e.g., Google Calendar, but not Google Drive)?

Yes. You can manage the various Google connections in your account settings. Note that you can only have 1 account for Google Sign-In and 1 account for Google Drive. For Google Calendar and Contacts, you can have 1 account with a Personal plan and 5 accounts with a Professional or Teams plan.

When I authorize Evernote to connect to my Google account, what in my Evernote account can Google see and vice versa?

When you authorize Evernote to connect to your Google account, you are giving Evernote permission to view and access certain aspects of your Google account, listed on the permissions page when you connect. Google cannot see or access any notes in your Evernote account.

What data is collected and received by Evernote with regard to my calendars and events?

Evernote will collect and receive event details (title, date, time, location), attendees and their acceptance status, locations, and video conferencing links. Google cannot see or access any notes in your Evernote account.

Will Google be able to search any notes in my Evernote account if I connect my Google account and my Evernote account?

No. The authorized connection only gives Evernote permission to view and access your Google account, not the other way around. Google cannot view or search any of the notes in your Evernote account.
