Learn how to password protect a OneNote notebook in this video.
- [Instructor] Sometimes notes in a shared notebook are not meant for everyone to see. That's where a password can help. Each section of a notebook can be password-protected. To password-protect a section, right-click over the section, and then select Password-Protect This Section. The Password Protection panel displays to the right. From this panel, select Set Password. Type in a password, and then type the password in to confirm, and select OK. If you'd like to lock all of the sections that are password-protected, select Lock All from the panel. Now, the Contracts section that was password-protected is no longer visible. Even if another section is selected and you navigate back to this section, you'll need to either select the page by clicking over it, or press the Enter key, and then enter the password to see the content. While unlocked, from the Password Protection panel, the password can be changed or removed. A few things to note, you may not be able to view password-protected sections on all devices. Audio and video recordings are not protected if using the OneNote 2007 section format. To search password-protected sections, you will need to unlock them first. Now you know how to secure notes that shouldn't be visible to those without the password.
