Evernote lets you take your important thoughts and ideas with you wherever you go. Your notes are always in reach, whether you’re at home or at work, on the bus or in line at the grocery store. But what if you accidentally leave your phone unattended? Can a curious stranger or a friend snoop in your notes? Not to worry.

Your private notes should stay private, even when you take them out into the world. By popular request, we’re making this previously paid-only feature available for everyone. Starting now, you can enable a 4-digit passcode lock on your mobile Evernote, even if you’re using the free version.

Set up a passcode lock in Evernote on your iOS, Android, or Windows Phone device. It’s easy to do and it protects your information from prying eyes if you ever leave your phone behind. For added peace of mind, make passcode lock a part of your complete mobile security plan. Keep taking notes, capturing inspiration, and working on your ideas, knowing your stuff is safe.
