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.

This really MUST be added to make this a useful note taking app.

Would love to see this

Yes, this is a key feature that miss in Goodnotes. Encrypting or locking option would add a lot of value to it.

Having recently got an Apple Pencil, I bought GoodNotes following positive reviews but the absence of password or Touch ID protecting journals or notes pushed me to purchase notability. I have to say I’m now using notability exclusively mainly because of the ability to password protect notes even though I much prefer the interface of GoodNotes. So come on guys, sort this out, it should be a fundamental feature for a paid note taking app..

Really would love this! I see clients and this would be great

There aren’t any technical barriers that I’m aware of that would prevent this feature, and it is standard in any other reasonable note app. The only explanation I can come up with is that the developer has, and wants to retain, a way of looking at users’ notes.

This is a really important feature to have for note taking apps. Please implement this feature!
I hope you make it happen ASAP, goodnotes. Please.

Editing hyperlinks; they often get messed up when adding pages and we should have the ability to reassign the tab/link to a new page number so we don't lose its functionality.
I too am a mental health treatment provider, and would like that added layer of protection for GoodNotes. Thank you.
This seems to be requested a lot and the idea is 8 years old. How is this still not implemented?
Why have you not added password protection? Please respond over 5000 votes for this! What is the status?? Is it in the works or a no go?
why isn't this already implemented?
I was looking for exactly that feature because I share the iPad with my kids and as long as Apple is not able to ship multi user support on iPadOS, this (password protection) is a VERY VERY important and urgent feature!
Por favor, queremos tener la posibilidad de proteger con contraseña los documentos que creamos en la aplicación de GoodNotes.
Bitte unbedingt implementieren!!!
We URGENTLY need the password protection feature for certain notes.
I used to show some notes to others and let them read or write on it, but there are personal and sensitive notes that I want to keep it private, safe, and locked.
Please make this as the first priority.
How isn’t there a way to lock notes, folders, and notebooks in Goodnotes? Quite odd that anyone with access to my computer will also have access to my private notes, journals, etc.
As a psychologist, I would love to continue using Good Notes to store my client session notes. However, there needs to be a password encryption functionality before I can do so.
Please add this feature soon!

I, too, would like password protection on notebooks, but in honesty, it’s redundant. It would be akin to having multiple locks on a door, which isn’t necessary if you have a solid deadbolt already built-in (aka the built-in iOS security).
Using FaceID or TouchID with an alphanumeric passcode is all you need.
For those who say that they can’t use GoodNotes for legal docs because it doesn’t have a password, that’s ridiculous. The apps you’re using daily on your Windows or Mac don’t have built-in password security, and if they do, they’re easy to break (Word password protection).
To those who think that GoodNotes hasn’t implemented passwords because they want to read our notes, well that’s just so stupid I don’t even want to spend time constructing an argument that counters that.
