A free and open source note-taking tool with a focus on user privacy and usability is called Notesnook. Notesnook encrypts everything on your device with XChaCha20-Poly1305 & Argon2 to guarantee zero knowledge principles.

Notesnook serves as our example of how convenience need not (always) be sacrificed for privacy. Our aim is to give consumers complete assurance that their notes are safe and secure, giving them piece of mind. One of the most important steps in that direction is the choice to use only open source software.

Open Source License
Without the open source community’s efforts, from the base (Linux) to the topmost (Java), Notesnook would not exist today (React). We have chosen to use a (A)GPLv3 license precisely because of this. Open source includes freedom, and we don’t want to limit your freedom in any way.

Notesnook’s independent and self-funded development began in 2019. The initial edition, which incorporated our Pro plan with a subscription model, was introduced in April 2021. Since then, Notesnook has only been able to operate thanks to the generous subscription fees paid by our loyal customers. This gives us the freedom to decide what is best for your privacy on our own.

Sincerely, we neither have the tools nor the expertise necessary to launch a capital round, nor do we have any plans to do so. VC-backed start-ups are fantastic, but in order to remain competitive and successful, they have to give up their individuality and independence.

What distinguishes Notesnook from other note-taking apps that respect privacy?
Everyone may take notes securely from beginning to end with the help of Notesnook, a user-focused note-taking tool. The vast majority of our less tech-savvy consumers who simply want to take notes without all the effort fall under this category.

In essence, Notesnook seeks to provide a full substitute for other unreliable note-taking applications like Notion and Evernote. Since these technologies, let’s face it, offer excellent productivity at the expense of your privacy.

Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Notesnook reviews

So far this app is fantastic! Very intuitive. The UI is nice as well. Love the security features. Great work! Will be subscribing to pro very soon! One suggestion is to add the ability to choose a notebook to save a quick note to when making a quicknote from chrome mobile. One small issue is that sometimes the UI goes off the bottom of the page on my LG V30 phone. I imaginge that will be fixed.

Loving it so far! Simple, safe and efficient, exactly what I'm looking for. The only complaint is that adding pics to notes isn't a very smooth experience. I can't drag pictures around, and sometimes if i want to add words after the picture i can't find the cursor.

Pretty great so far. It is exactly what it is advertised to be. The ability to organize notes via notebooks is amazing. The ability to have sections within sections would be very useful, as would a whiteboard or sketch feature, such as the one Samsung Notes has. Otherwise, this app is very useful!
