How to enable password protection

Password-protection and encryption are only available to Diarly Premium users.

To ensure the security of your journal, Diarly provides password-protection. Adding a password automatically enables encryption for all the text in your journals.

You can activate it by going to Settings:

On Mac, from the Menu Bar, go to Diarly > Preferences or use the keyboard shortcut ⌘,. On iOS, go to More > Password & encryption and enable Encrypt Entries with Password.

Write your password and confirm it. It's also required to write a hint, in case you forget your password.

If you forget your password, it cannot be reset or recovered. Learn more about why, and tips on how to avoid losing your password.
