Passcode
This is a PRO feature β†’
To protect your privacy, now it is supported to enable Passcode lock on Android/Web/Mac/PWA. So when people borrow your phone or computer, you can avoid them peeking at your MEMOs.
Please note: Passcode lock is different from the encrypted storage. If there is someone hacking your phone or computer, he can still see your records by cracking your password. So please ensure you have a safe environment.
