Password on Notes - how to change or remove it entirely?
 
Hi guru there, as the subject and I have followed the procedures given by Apple support. However, I am still unable to remove or change the password created in Notes. I have no issue using Face Recognition to gain access to those Notes with locked feature. I can also remember my Apple ID which I believe it is ties to icloud too. I was able to get into the reset password page and changed it but then when I returned to the Notes, it failed again. Is there anyway, I can resolve this issue? Thanks in advance.

I think the password on the Notes app could be a password that was separately setup that might be different from the Apple ID.

What do you mean exactly? You canít change at settings > notes > password?
Try to unlock old locked notes, sync it den lock them back with new password?

Hi, to answer your first part, I managed to reset the password at setting and also managed to change to new password with hint. After changing successfully, when I returned to the Notes, using the new password, it was unsuccessful and the hint was still the old one.

Honestly and sorry, I donít own a personal laptop and I believe I am unable to sync this?

Lastly, I even tried to delete an existing notes by creating a new one thinking that
I can use the newly created password but I was disappointed. By the way, can I just using the lock 🔐 without any password? Thanks in advance.

I donít think you can remove a password that you have forgotten without doing a restore

Unfortunately, if you had forgotten the password for some of the notes, there is no way to retrieve them.

https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT20...orgot_password

In order to forget and reset/change the password for the notes to take place, the notes must have already been unlocked.

Else, the (new) password will not be updated or changed to the locked notes.

Hi there,

I managed to resolve the issue though is a bit lame. :o Firstly, I "reset password" in Setting -> Notes and created a new password for Notes. Thereafter, what I did was to copy those contents in Notes with old(or forgotten) password to a new Notes with new password generated, after I have successfully copied the contents to the new Notes, I deleted the old Notes with old(or forgotten) password.

Thanks guys for your advice.
