Open Source Microsoft OneNote Alternative
Using OneNote? Try Notesnook and go 100% private
End to end encryption
Notesnook is by default private. Enjoy rich and powerful note taking while keeping your notes 100% end-to-end encrypted. If you use OneNote online, you have to trust Microsoft that they won't misuse your data. With Notesnook it's impossible for us or any third party to read your notes.
Never risk your privacy again
No matter how many times Microsoft tells you that they respect your privacy and won't read or access your notes. As long as your notes are not encryped, they are always at risk. So any employee at Microsoft OneNote or the government can get access to them anytime they want. Because they can.
A key to a door that can be broken
Imagine a Microsoft server get's hacked. All your notes & data can be easily accessed and used for what not. Even with the best security, there's still a possibilty of a data breach. Therefore Notesnook encrypts your data. No one except you can read your notes. It's just impossible.
Password protected note sharing
When publically sharing your notes and documents with OneNote web, anyone with the link can read the contents. Notesnook let’s you password protect your notes so only you and the person you share the link with can read the contents. Learn more about Monographs.
Built-in privacy lock
Unlike OneNote with Notesnook, you get a dedicated privacy lock that let's you stop intruders from getting into your notes even when your phone is not locked.
Great note editing
We believe that everyone uses a notes app differently. Some people need some features and other's don't. Notesnook simplifies everything in the editor for you so you can write notes without wasting time.
Only OneNote web for Linux users
There's no OneNote desktop client on Linux. So to have a better note taking experience you have to install Windows or Mac? Notesnook is a OneNote linux alternative with clients for desktop & web.
Like OneNote, Notesnook has Notebooks & topics which you can quickly get used to. But that's not it. Notesnook allows colors, favorites, pins and tags so you have more options to organize your notes.
