Keep Your Private Notes Hidden with Safe N Secure Notepad

Keep Your Private Notes Hidden with Safe N Secure Notepad

Normally, one’s cell phone is a rather personal item. After all, these little connected devices are able to access a world of information about their owners once unlocked. Despite this, many of us still have to routinely share our mobile devices with friends and family.

In order to gain some privacy when sharing your device, you could install per-app password protection. Alternatively, you could simply hover over anyone using your device. However, the best way of hiding something is when others don’t even know it’s there in the first place.

To that end, XDA Forum Member msappz created Safe N Secure Notepad. The application installs like a normal app. And once you run it for the first time and configure the security command, it hides itself from your applications menu. To run it again, you then have to enter a user-configurable code into your dialer. Since the code to access the application runs from the dialer, this won’t work on tablets. However, it is reasonable to assume that if you load an aftermarket dialer app onto your tablet, this will likely work.

If you want to hide your most important notes from others using your devices, head over to the application thread and give Safe N Secure Notepad a shot.
