FYI ,You can lock certain notes on your iPhone

If you have some super top secret data that you want to keep from prying eyes, we got you! Or, more specifically, Apple got you.

 

Its not super commonly known, but the Notes app will let you lock any note with a single password. If you have an iPhone, iPad, or Mac with Touch ID, you can use your fingerprint to open your locked notes. With an iPhone X, you can use Face ID.

 

But take note: You can’t lock notes if you’re signed in to iCloud with a Managed Apple ID.

 

So how do we perform this magic?

 
Update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to the latest version of iOS, and your Mac to the latest version of macOS.
Turn on Notes syncing in your iCloud Settings or System Preferences, or make sure that you use notes stored locally on your device.

 

Create a password, BUT! If you forget your password, Apple can’t help you reset it so be careful out there!

 

If you access your iCloud notes on more than one Apple device, you’ll use the same notes password to lock and unlock all of them.

 

Go to the ‘Notes ‘section in Settings, Tap Password. Enter a password, then give yourself a password hint .Tap Done.

 

Da Daa!

 

After you lock a note, it’s automatically protected with your password on all of your devices. If you want to use Touch ID or Face ID to unlock notes, you must enter your password and then turn on Touch ID or Face ID on the device you’re using.

 

Now, to lock specific notes, Open the note that you want to lock. Tap the Share icon, and choose Lock Note.

To view any locked notes, tap View Note. Enter your password, use Touch ID, or use Face ID.

 

Easy Peasy.
