How can we improve GoodNotes?

Password protect

It would be great if you had an option to password protect a selected notebook in case you have to create one that would contain sensitive information.

    I also would love to use this app as my journal. Unfortunately my family shares one iPad and therefore I cannot use GoodNotes.

    Unfortunately without password feature, I will not be able to use GoodNotes as much as I would like to, please add this feature thank you very much

    I decide not to buy good notes 5 because the lack of password protection. I seriously worry about the privacy of my notes and my office documents

    I can't believe this isn't already a feature. Serious limitations without it.

    So... my kid already deleted or otherwise screwed work notes. Passwordprotection would fix that. Also I am writing a diary in goodnotes. My mind would really rest easier would it be password protected.
    Please add this feature.

    I don’t understand why this is still absent. I have to use notability because I don’t want my kids (who use my iPad all the time) to have access to my work notes. Please fix ASAP.

    Sad but I also can’t use the app now ... surely this should be a standard feaature

    This feature is critical to allow me to use GoodNotes. I need to record sensitive information and use Notability for this purpose because it does provide password protection. I would happily switch to GoodNotes if this feature was implemented.

    The only thing stopping me using Goodnotes full time is the lack of a password / Touch ID protection for selected notebooks as I use my notebook to track financial information etc. When Goodnotes 5 was released, I thought YES, then was really disappointed to see it wasn't in there. Your product is by far the nicest out there in every other way, but I just cannot go ahead and use it as my main notebook without this feature... Please consider feature this if at all possible.

    Yes please! I would love this feature. It would mean I could totally commit to GoodNotes and get rid of other journaling apps.

    Moving back to OneNote. Won’t buy GoodNotes 5 until this gets fixed.

  • SDB commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Moving back to OneNote. Won’t update app until this gets sorted out.

    going to have to go back to notability since this simple password request seems to be ignored. Very sad....wish I’d found out about this before I paid the money over for the app 🙁
