FAQ

Is it possible to setup a cron to backup my notes without storing my login/password in plaintext in my crontab?

Yes, the turtl auth_token is enough to backup an account. You can get your auth token using turtl-backup get_auth_token, but still be carefull not to leak it. Then use turtl-backup backup --auth-token YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN.

Is it possible to decrypt my notes using my auth_token?

No, you'll need your login and password again.
