So you’re like one of those people who have a really bad memory. You fail to reach appointments on time, forget your mom’s birthday, or the name of the restaurant where your special friend invited you to dinner. In this scenario, you need to keep notes of everything.
However, carrying a notebook everywhere with you is complex and extremely irritating, especially when you need to make a note in the middle of the street, or scroll through all those pages to find where you wrote it. With the advent of smartphones, these problems are mostly over. The Play Store is full of hundreds of apps, if not thousands, which allow you to keep notes, to do lists, diaries, etc on your smartphone.
What most of these apps lack is the special lock, which guards your private diary. Modern notes apps are completely accessible. All a hacker needs to do is to somehow bypass your phone’s passcode, and all of your life’s secrets are completely within his reach. To safeguard this information, you need to have a notes app with good security features. To make your search for the most secure Notes app easier for you, I’ve compiled together a list of 4 Android Notes apps which can’t be hacked.
