Privacy Limitations

By encrypting all your notes, you are the only one who will be able to desencrypt them, however Skrifa can't protect you if your computer has been compromised (keyloggers, trojans etc.)

You can export your notes in an encrypted or unencrypted format, if you export them unencrypted then anyone will be able to read that exported file.
