Your notes for good.

Standard Notes is the 100 year notes app. It's built long-lasting so you never have to find another one. It syncs on all your devices. It encrypts your data to protect your privacy. And it backs up your notes so you never lose anything again.

  • 100% Private.

    Your notes are encrypted and secured so only you can decrypt them. No one but you can read your notes (not even us).

  • Simple

    Keeping our app simple means you'll spend less time fighting and more time writing. It's faster and lighter than most notes apps.

  • Powerful Extensions

    Compose any kind of note, from rich text, to Markdown and code. Change the mood and find new inspiration with custom themes.

  • Long-lasting

    You probably don't care, so we'll care for you: our apps are built carefully to optimize overall lifetime and long-term survivability.
