How to set a password to the Notes app to secure all your notes

A lot of us use note-taking apps to store key information and sometimes this information might be sensitive or confidential. If you don’t want anyone else to take a peek at your notes, we would suggest you secure all of your notes with a password.

In this guide, we’ll help you set a password for all your notes. This means that all the notes saved in the app will be locked with the created password. However, you will need an app that allows you to set a password to itself, so if you were using the Google Keep app, you would need to make a switch to the new app recommended below.
