Then select "Add Secure Note".…A new screen will appear allowing you to complete your note.…First enter a name for your note in the name field.…This should be a name that will help you…easily identify what the note's about,…such as "safe combination".…You can choose which folder you want the note stored in…in the right of the name field.…
