The application uses server and device time to sync the notes. Incorrectly set date and time can lead to problems during sync. To fix the problem, set the correct date and time on your device (also do not forget to set the correct timezone). If you can't do that, then do not edit a note on a website and then on the device before at least a few minutes passes.12. Is the data transfer between a mobile device and a web service encrypted?
No! You should never store passwords or credit card information in the notes, because the notes can be intercepted during the sync process.
