Joplin’s version 1.0.170 (32bits, I know right)
Windows 7 (64 bits)
There’s an option of synchronizing, and even a “synch status”, for a synch that I never asked the software to perform. If it’s synching or not it is at least unclear as the software’s configuration doesn’t display “NO SYNC TO THE WEB” in the sync alternatives.
Secondly, after installing the firefox addon there’s no announcement to the extent of the addon risking my privacy on the web by having this tool running on the background while the user browses the internet. Since it ports a software executable on the system, the communication between them is a security risk to say the minimum.
I know the source code is available, but eventually this will have to be stated. And my preference was github instead of a personal forum because this can be buried down in the will of the owner and still requires a 3-party registry to ask for an explanation.
Conclusion: Joplin needs some “everything offline without any data sharing ever” in the preferences, and a better explanation on the addon privileges over the disk/OS for web synch through 3party telemetry.
