Taking notes is a daily routine for many of us.. It will help us remember and keep a permanent record of what we have read, learned, and heard.
There are many applications, tools and utilities available for taking notes. Today I am going to talk about one of those applications.
ProtectedText, a free and encrypted notepad for keeping your notes online. It is a free web service where they can write their texts, encrypt them and access them from anywhere and from any device.
It's that easy. All they need is a web browser that can be launched from any device.
The ProtectedText site does not require any personal information and it does not store passwords. There are no ads, no cookies, no user tracking or registration.
No one can see the notes except those who have the password to decrypt the text. Since you do not need to register as a user, you do not need to create an account on this site.
Once you've finished typing in what you need to store, just close your web browser and you're done.
- Simple, easy to use, fast and free!
- The ProtectedText.com client-side code is freely available to all who know it.
- You can analyze and check the code yourself to understand what's under the hood.
- There is no deletion date for your stored content. You can leave them there as long as you want.
- It is possible to make your data private (only you can see the data).
- If you've ever looked for an easy way to store your notes online and access them wherever you go without installing additional tools, the ProtectedText service may be a good option.
- The client-side code is open to everyone, however, the server-side code is not.
- Therefore, you yourself cannot receive the service yourself.
- You have to trust them. If you don't trust them, it is better to stay away from this site.
- Since the site does not store anything about you, including the password, there is no way to get your data back if you forget the password.
They just go to the official website, which they can do from the link below.
It will appear on the home page, where you can type your "site name" in the white box in the center of the page.
Alternatively, just type the name of the site directly into the address bar.
The site name is just a custom name (for example, https://www.protectedtext.com/mysite) that you choose to access your private portal where you keep your notes.
By typing in your site name, the website will inform you whether or not the name you chose already exists. In the best of cases, it will deliver the message that:
"If the site you chose does not exist"
Now just click on the button that says "Create" to create your notebook page.
By creating a dedicated private page for yourself, you can start writing your notes. The current maximum length is just over 750,000 characters per page.
The ProtectedText site uses the AES algorithm to encrypt and decrypt its content and the SHA512 algorithm for hashing. Once you're done, click the Save button at the top.
After pressing the Save button, you will be prompted to enter a password to protect your site. Enter the password twice and click Save.
You can use any password of your choice. However, it is recommended to use a long and complex password (including numbers, special characters) to avoid brute force attacks.
Since the ProtectedText servers will not save your password, there is no way to recover the lost password.
So it is essential that they remember the password or use any password manager like Buttercup and KeeWeb to store their credentials.
May Access your notebook at any time by visiting its URL from any device. When you access the URL, just type in your password and start adding and / or updating notes.
As you can see, only you and other people who know the password can access the site.
If you want to make your site public, just add your site password as follows:
This will automatically decrypt your site with your password when entering the URL.
On the other hand, there is also an Android app available, which allows you to sync notes across all your devices, work offline, backup notes, and lock / unlock your site.
