You save a lot of valuable memories and information in your Evernote account: your business plan, receipts, your kids’ art projects.

Passcode lock blocks access to the Evernote application on your phone or tablet by requiring a 4-digit PIN. Use this feature for added security when sharing your device with others.

Passcode Lock is an Evernote Premium feature available on Evernote on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Let’s take a look at how it works.

    Not sure if doing the deed from my iPad enables pass code to be required for both iPhone AND iPad…. Guess I’ll find out!

    In the program called “The Journal”, I can assign different passwords to individual notebooks (or not). I can keep my passwords more secure than the installed program list for my computer, etc.

    Why no passcode lock on the desktop Evernote? This is the sole reason I don’t use Evernote and let my premium subscription lapse.

    Providing very basic security for an app that people use to store private information should not be a ‘Premium’ feature. I use the app occasionally, but would use it more if it had any security features built in. An annual subscription for a passcode lock? No. I don’t have an issue with folks providing premium features on an otherwise free app- we all need to make money. I would just make sure the premium features had a value equivalent to what you are asking for them… I second the passcode idea for the desktop version too…

      I agree with RC. passcode should be standard to the free version and the desktop app should be able to have a passcode.
