In our busy schedule, we often forget important things, and that is when you need to use a note-taking app to keep everything in mind. Windows ships with Sticky Notes and also offers has several free third-party Note taking apps. However, when it comes to creating password protected notes, most do not help. To solve this problem, here is a simple note-taking app called ZenR Notes which will let you set different passwords for different Notes, and set a Master password too.
ZenR Notes review
ZenR Notes is a free Windows software to take notes and protect them with passwords. That means, unlike other regular note-taking apps, ZenR Notes has the option to protect, for instance, ten notes with ten different passwords, by using AES 256-Bit encryption to lock down the notes and protect them. The best part is you can recover your password using email if you forget a password.
The user interface is neat and clean. You have options to change the font, font size, create a list, insert a picture, align text, make text bold, underline or italic. It is also possible to backup notes and restore them to another computer.
To get started with ZenR Notes, download it. You do not have to install it since this is a portable app. After you open it, you should first secure the app.
