How can we improve GoodNotes?

Password protected notebooks

This is amazing app to write notes, but there is no option to set password on some notebooks, these make more privacy on some personal notebooks , we hope you add this feature in next update.

Regards

        Let me explain why password protection is important for me:

        It isn't about security as much as it's about privacy.

        On notability, I have separate folders for school and personal notes. The personal section is password protected. That way, while I'm sharing notes in class, private notebooks don't "accidentally" pop up while scrolling through.

        It's obviously not something that needs to be encrypted like medical or tax documents. More like to-do lists and notes to myself.

        Don't you have a lock screen on your iPad/iPhone? hahahah with touch/face ID? sooo.... I guess problem fixed! It's way more secure than a normal notebook so I'm satisfied right now :)

        Password protection would be very useful. I was surprised the app does not have this function.

        why don’t you add this feature?? don’t you know this is very essential ability???

        The ability to password protect a category would be enough. Same line of thought as preventing a category from uploading to the cloud.

        This is very essential since the device is most often shared between different people.

        Agree - This is a must have feature - one I’ve been waiting for since the early days. Surely it’s not that hard to implement on a per notebook basis? Or just let the whole app be locked down? Touch ID? Either way, some additional security would be most welcome.
