    If you have password-protected a note and can't remember the password is there a workaround?

    I have mine set up with Touch ID. Did you happen to set that up?

    If you didn’t have Touch ID you’re unfortunately out of luck. Not even Apple have access to the encrypted notes

    You can't without the password or Touch ID. You can reset the password, but that doesn't give access to the locked note.
    To reset password:

    Go to Settings > Notes > Password.
    Tap Reset Notes Password.
    Enter your Apple ID password.
    Tap Reset Notes Password again.
    Enter your new password and password hint.
    Save password in 1Password, Keychain or somewhere safe.

    It's odd because some locked notes ask for a password and some ask for Touch ID. Not sure why.

    I think the ones that ask for a password was created with a Mac.

    I'd much prefer Touch ID
