Introducing two-factor authentication and offline extensions

February 14, 2018

Let's get right to it: we have a new update (v2.1), and it's probably our most important one yet. Here's what's new:

1. Two-factor authentication.

2FA will have you feeling warm and cozy as you sign in with high levels of additional security. It's now available for Extended members. Be sure to upgrade your apps on every platform to the latest version. Learn more about setting up two-factor authentication.

2. A new extensions manager.

Now you can browse and install extensions without ever leaving Standard Notes. The new built-in Extensions Manager makes browsing, installing, and activating extensions easier than ever.

3. Offline installation of extensions.

This is a big one. Previously, extensions like editors and themes were downloaded from a server every time you wanted to use them. Now, on desktop, extensions are automatically installed locally and offline, so you can use them without a connection. This also improves security by not relying on an external server for extensions.

4. We've given our desktop and web app a clean makeover.

The new interface for menus and panels is cleaner, easier to use, and much more pleasant to look at. You'll like the way it feels.

5. We now support all major cryptocurrencies as a payment method for Extended.

It's no secret that Standard Notes is a great place for secrets. Crypto enthusiasts and banking over-throwers can now purchase Extended and help support continued development with most major cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Monero, Ripple, Verge, and many more.
