Sync Failed: Change the Evernote (Desktop) Password

So, you have changed your password for Evernote after the security issue. Now you are unable to sync the desktop Evernote application with the cloud servers. The error message displayed would be "Sync Failed". Here's how to start syncing again.

  1. Open Evernote desktop application (tested in Windows only, but Mac version should be similar). 
  2. Goto Tools>Account Info. In the dialog box, your current username will be highlighted in blue.
  3. Click the blue username (which is a link), and type in your new password in the dialog box that pops in.
  4. Click the Sync button to start syncing again.

That's it! Enjoy!
