How to enable password protection

Password protection and encryption in Diarly ensure the safety and confidentiality of your journal entries. This guide will walk you through the simple steps to enable these features, available exclusively for Diarly Premium users. Remember, adding a password not only protects your journal but also automatically encrypts all your entries.

Setting up password protection

Activating password protection in Diarly is straightforward. Here's how you can do it on different devices:

  1. Navigate to Settings.
  2. Select Password & Encryption.
  3. Toggle on the option Encrypt Entries with Password.

Creating Your password

Once you've accessed the password and encryption settings:

  1. Enter your chosen password in the provided field.
  2. Re-enter the password for confirmation.
  3. Provide a password hint. This hint can be invaluable in case you forget your password.

Important Note: If you forget your Diarly password, it cannot be reset or recovered. To understand why and to get tips on avoiding this situation, read our Forgot Password Guide.

For added security and peace of mind, Diarly uses encryption along with password protection. This means that your entries are not only locked behind a password but also encoded for additional safety.
