Re: evernote systemwide forced password resets

Click for full size
still confused - have changed my password after logging in via the website.

I am now getting the attached Update request via the internal updater. While this type of update is quite normal for Evernote, I find it strange that they state " this update addresses a security issue to reset your password" but the otherwise listed improvements or fixes have nothing to do with it.
The reference to the blog is just the usual announcement as has been well documented. Anyone having a clearer understanding regarding this update?

They are releasing updates for all of their apps on all platforms to make the forced password change easier and more clear. The existing (previous) version just fails to login with no additional notice. For those that either had not yet received the email notification or did not read it that could be confusing.

For those that have already changed their password following the procedure in the notice this update will not have a noticeable impact now.
