Set a passcode to lock your app

Evernote lets you capture everything that's important to you in your personal and professional life. Setting up a passcode to lock access to the Evernote app on your phone or tablet adds an additional layer of protection and privacy to your notes.

Note: Passcode lock is only available on Evernote for iOS and Android.
