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 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.
I moved from Notability recently because of all the ways GoodNotes is superior. Adding to what everyone else is saying. Please add this. We are almost 10 years later. I understand nothing is simple in software development, but this feels like it at least deserves a response from the dev team
It’s probably non-negotiable and a brand’s accountability and responsibility to have this feature now. Please make password protection available.
Clearly a very big issue for a lot of people and it has been ongoing for some years. Could we get a response from GoodNotes as to why this feature is not added or if they are even considering it, would be nice to know these requests aren’t going on deaf ears
I've been waiting for this "basic" feature for years and GoodNotes has refused to do it for years. The only credible explanation for this unwillingness is that GoodNotes wants to be able to access the contents of our personal notes. And this despite their talk about data security. GoodNotes has never given a rational explanation for not integrating this feature. This is strange and very suspicious.

Waiting for this feature since 2 years :(
Please add this feature to ensure privacy.
It's a very important feature that's available in almost all the journaling apps, which are available in the AppStore for less price than Goodnotes. I love Goodnotes and I am really surprised how can you leave this basic and essential feature out of it. Please do consider adding this feature in the next update. A goodnotes lover.

why they didn't make this simple feature?
7 years later... I do hope goodnotes will consider.
Please add Password Protection ASAP.
