How to passcode a note on iPhone or iPad

To set a password for Notes, you need an iOS device with iOS 9.3 or higher installed.

It is worth noting that you can password-protect notes only if Notes are saved locally on the iPhone (iPad) or synchronized with iCloud (SettingsiCloud). For example, if you sync notes with Gmail (this is configured along the path Settings → Passwords and Accounts), the option to protect such notes will be unavailable.
