iOS Notes App Password Reset

The iOS Notes app allows you to create checklists and other quick notes and keep them updated across all your other Apple devices through iCloud. To make full use of the latest Notes app features, be sure to set it up with iCloud. Although the Notes app works with other email service providers, not all Notes features are supported.

Only a single password is required for all locked notes in an account on all supported devices. Aside from a unique password, you can also use Touch ID or Face ID to lock and unlock your notes. 

And in the case where you find the need to change or update your Notes password and Face ID or Touch ID was set up, re-entering your password is necessary.

One way to lessen the chance of forgetting the password is to create or add a password hint. But if you still forget the password despite adding a hint, then you’ve got no other choice but to reset it to unlock notes.

Locking and Unlocking your Notes

One way to keep your notes private from anyone else that might use your device is to lock it. This is when using Face ID or Touch ID along with a unique password to lock and unlock your notes comes in handy.

Setting up Notes password on an iPhone only requires access to Settings-> Notes-> Password menu. Once you get there, select the account that you’d like to set a password for (if you’ve got multiple accounts set up on your device). Enter your password and a password hint to make it easier for you to remember. 

If you’re using Notes on your other Apple devices, you can access your notes on these devices using the same password that you set on your iPhone 13.

If you prefer, you can enable Face ID Or Touch ID to add convenience and for faster unlocking. 

Locking a note only requires a few steps from opening the desired note and then tap Lock from the menu options. Locked notes only show the title and last modified date in the notes list. The notes also appear with a lock icon

To open and access a locked note, you will have to tap on the desired note then tap the option to view the note. Finally, enter your Notes password, Face ID or Touch ID to confirm access to secure notes.

But it’s also worth noting that your Face ID or Touch ID alone won’t be able to unlock your notes if you forget your Notes password. 

That being said, locked notes are still not accessible. Even Apple Support wouldn’t be able to help you regain access to locked notes. Thus, the only option  you’ve got is to reset password for notes on iPhone.

The option to reset forgotten notes password won’t give you access to previously locked notes.
