The Notes app lets you lock any note that you want to keep private from anyone else that might use your device. Notes uses a single password for all of the notes that you want to protect on all of your devices. In this article, we are going to share you some tips for iPhone/iPad encryption.

What’s the advantages of notes password-protection?

Whether your note has an image, sketch, map, scanned document, or list of important information, it’s simple to keep it safe with password-protection. And when you need to access your secure notes, you can tell which ones are locked directly from the Notes list. Until you enter your password, use Touch ID, or use Face ID, you only see the title and the last date that it was edited.

What should I do before I set up my notes password?

  • Update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to the latest version of iOS
  • Create a password that you can easily remember
  • Make sure that you give yourself a password hint
  • Turn on Notes syncing in your iCloud Settings or System Preferences, or make sure that you use notes stored locally on your device.

Is there any way to unlock a note if I forgot the password?

No. You can unlock a note only when you enter the password that it’s locked with. If you forgot your password, Apple can’t help you regain access to your locked notes.

Can I reset the password?

Yes. You can reset your password, but this won’t give you access to your old notes. It will, however, let you password protect any notes that you create from that point forward with the new password. This could lead to you having multiple notes with different passwords.
