Both options keep your information safe with end-to-end encryption across all iCloud accounts.


If you use your iPhone passcode, you don’t have to create and remember a separate passcode. If you access your iCloud notes on more than one Apple device, use that device’s passcode or sign-in password to unlock those notes.
