Open source & private Evernote alternative

The best notes app with zero trade offs on privacy.

Get started for free

End to end encryption

With privacy being the core value of Notesnook, we are building a Notes app that is as rich and powerful as Evernote and is 100% end-to-end encrypted. Being only a year old, Notesnook offers some exceptional features compared to Evernote.

Your privacy matters

While Evernote puts your privacy at risk, Notesnook goes an extra mile to ensure that your notes are safe and encrypted always by default. So unlike Evernote we can’t just put a privacy policy update stating that we will be reading our user’s notes to “improve the product”.

A key to a door that can be broken

But my Evernote account has a password on it so i think it's safe enough...Yeah but that password isn't used to encrypt your data so Evernote, governments etc can anytime read all your data and notes.

Password protected note sharing

When publically sharing your notes and documents with Evernote, 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.
Secure your notes. Get Notesnook on all your devices.

Built-in privacy lock

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.

App lock

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.

A note editor that conforms to your needs

No Official way to backup your data

While Evernote has no proper way to backup all your data. Notenook has a zero lock-in policy. This means that you own your data and can take it anywhere. You can easily take backups of your notes and even turn on automatic backups. You can even export notes as PDF, Markdown, HTML and plain text.

Notebooks & tags

Evernote only allows notebook (single-level) or stacks (2-level) & tags (single-level). While Notesnook allows colors, favorites, pins, tags, notebooks & topics.

What's an online notepad without syncing?

Not an online notepad, duh! Notesnook syncs to all your devices and it doesn't compromise your privacy on the way.

Encrypted image and file attachments

Offline notepad

No Internet access? No worries. Your notes are always with you offline. Everything gets synced as soon as you go online.

Notesnook is open source

Notesnook is fully open source soon unlike Evernote. We don’t want you to just trust us or our privacy policy. You can see everything for yourself and report suggestions, improvements and even contribute.

I work in content writing and communications. My day starts and ends in Notesnook. My Chrome app is always open; it's where I take all my notes. The clean design, Focus mode, the tagging and color coding are all features that help keep my work organised every day.

This app is really great so far! (using the android version currently) looking forward to maximizing the **** out of this. Also i think you should mention off the bat that unlimited storage in the pro version means file upload (pics, etc).
