I set nvALT to use a single database to store and sync my notes. Using a database has the benefit of having encryption.
I just noticed this warning at the bottom of the synchronization settings window that says "Note contents will be delivered in clear text." This came as a bit of a shock because I do have some personal sensitive information stored in nvALT.
I searched for the syncing APIs of Simplenote which seem to use HTTPS but I'm not sure about that. Can anyone explain how the synchronization works exactly and what the warning message means?
