Take Notes and keep them Secure using this free Windows 8 Notes app:

To use this secret notes app, first install it on your Windows 8 system.  As you launch the app, a login page will appear where you will be asked to enter a password. Type a password in the password window and click on Enter to enter app’s main page.

My Verdict:

Classified is an easy to use free Windows 8 notes app that helps to keep your notes secured by a password. However, there is no way to retrieve your password if you forget it. The app doesn’t provide the feature to reset password. In such a case, you will have to reinstall the app and all your data will be lost. Try it out and share your feedback via comments.
