If you have important notes on your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro that you want to keep private, locking them with a password can help ensure that no one else can access them. In this tutorial, we will show you how to lock notes with a password on your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro.

First, go to your home screen and swipe up at the bottom of the screen to access the app drawer. Tap on Settings and scroll down to Notes. Tap on Notes and then tap on Password. Here, select the account that you would like to apply the password to. For example, you can choose “On My iPhone.”

Since you haven’t set a password yet, it will ask you to print a new password. Enter the desired password and then tap on the verify text field. Re-enter the same password to verify it. You can also use a hint to help you remember the password. Keep in mind that if you forget this password, you won’t be able to access your locked notes.

Once you’re done, tap on the Done button at the top to save your settings. You have now successfully set a password for your Notes app. If you have Face ID, you can also use it in addition to the password to unlock your notes. To set up Face ID, go to Settings > Face ID and Passcode.

To test if the password works, open up Notes and go to “On My iPhone.” Tap on a note and then tap on the three dots or the more button at the top. Tap on “Lock Note” and it will ask you to enter the password. Once you enter the password, the note will be locked. To hide the contents of your locked notes, tap the lock icon in the toolbar or lock your device.

In conclusion, locking your notes with a password can help keep your private information secure. By following the steps above, you can easily set a password for your Notes app on iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. Remember to keep your password safe and accessible in case you forget it.
