I know you have lots to think about and do. I greatly enjoy using this app. I see there are lots of feature request but I am only going to make one since the others I am looking for like web and other syncing options are already mentioned. I would suggest the ability to password protect notes. I think this would be a great feature for sensitive information. Thanks for the great app!

    Hi - I am totally with Adrian here on every point. Since this entry is 6 months old at this point, I was wondering if you had this feature on your roadmap already? Respectively if you could speak at all about potential timelines? Thank you! (And yes, I love Bear!!!)

    +1 to this. I use the app for personal notes and on different devices. It would be nice to have some kind of protection to prevent people I lend my devices to see what I wrote there.

    Nothing being done about something as basic as password protection. i love the app but it's quite useless with out password protection. I will cancel my subscription when it comes due in October.

    +1 optional password protection to the app. And, what would be an even better enhancement is the ability to individually encrypt highly sensitive notes.

    I wanna echo everyone else's thoughts here and say that this is a highly desirable feature for me, and I might have to start looking at other options if this isn't in the pipeline.

    Hi Everybody,

    Some details have to be solved yet (attachments) and the whole thing has to be tested to death but password/touchID/faceID protection will probably come with the next 2/3 major updated. We figured an easy way to achieve secure and sync-savvy encryptions for notes.
