  • 3.1.3-12/12/2016:
    1. "Use secure (SSL) connection" is disabled by default. It doesn't hurt security, because all traffic between My Notes Desktop and My Notes cloud service is AES encrypted and SSL is just an additional measure.
    2. "Use Proxy" and "Use OS Proxy Settings" are enabled by default.
    Such defaults are more appropriate for new users who have outbound SSL connections blocked by default and for users who are using proxy servers in their corporate networks. If proxy is not used then everything will work as if the options were disabled.
