You can lock UpNote anytime to prevent unwanted access. Use the keyboard shortcut Cmd/Ctrl + Lor click the lock button located in the upper right corner of the app window.
We recommend that you sign in to your UpNote account before using the lock function. This is to make sure in the case you forget your password, you can easily sign out and reset your password.
By default, your lock password is set as your UpNote login password. If you want to change that to a shorter or all-digit one, you can do so from Settings > General > Change lock password.
If you happen to forget the lock password, click the Sign out link and you can sign in again with your account password. When you sign in again, your lock password will be set as your account password by default. You can change it again in the Settings.
