Protect notes or notebook with password
It’s still on our todo list to support this directly, but I wanted to mention that it’s currently possible to password protect a note in a roundabout way: by importing a password protected PDF into the note. This will password protect the note with the password of the PDF. You can even delete the PDF from the note and the password will remain on the note.

Yes, I have just installed Squid in order to keep some fairly sensitive notes. I'd love to see a password option.
노트별로 잠금기능, 또는 노트북(폴더)을 잠그는 기능이 있으면 좋겠습니다!
I agree, a password/passcode and fingerprint option to open the app would be great, as I use Squid on a daily basis for all note taking.
I recently started journaling and would feel more comfortable if I had privacy with the use of a password.

I think that one of the best features that are missing,
Is the possibility to create private note groups.
so that those notes would not appear in The recent notes, and
also be closed for security reasons.
You have a lot of trouble.
We hope that you can improve the security of your notebook or individual notes (such as setting passwords).
There is a sense that security is a little difficult to use now.

People have been wanting this feature for several years. Is there any intention of adding it in the future?
There is no mention on privacy and security of the notes. Is this intentional?
How can I ensure that somebody is not looking into them either manually or using automated tools?
Please move the direct password protect feature up to the top of the todo list. I see the original idea was posted in 2012. Hopefully this will be added soon.

I am a psychotherapist and I use Squid for session notes. Can an option be created to require a PIN to open the app so that notes can be locked and protected if someone pilfers the laptop?
This is a Must for any notetaking app, Squid should have password feature Asap! This app is so great but the lack of security makes it very vulnerable thus an incomplete great note app.
I fully support this idea as well. I'm concerned that it's 2019 and still nothing has been done....
Why has nothing been done yet about securing the notes?
FIVE YEARS people have been asking for a password feature!

It's necesary to add financial notes!
I use squid as a personal agenda.
It would be very nice to have password on the notes.
I would like to see GPG integration via OpenKeychain. A very good example is the app "Password Store"
Add the possibility of locking certain notes with a password. Locked notes don't show a preview on the main page. They show a lock sign

I have a 10 page document of notes and want to add a new page after page 5. Eg between page 5 and 6. Impossible? Why...... ? It is very simple to do in s note. Could you think about adding this feature or tell me a work around. Love the app...... Simply incredible on a Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 IE with a stylus.

Beautiful App! Almost perfect! Needs a password protect feature for individual documents. I want to keep ALL my notes in one place on one app and some need a password like my personal journal.
