Concealed Journals

Keep your content safe from wandering eyes.

We’ve said it before and we’re going to keep saying it: when it comes to journaling, privacy is paramount. In order to ensure that what you put in Day One stays private, we’ve included end-to-end encryption and biometric security. End-to-end encryption means when your content is synced with a server, it’s unreadable by anyone on the backend. As for biometric security, we use Apple’s Touch and FaceID (or a numeric passcode) to make sure that if someone gets their hands on your physical device, they still won’t have access to your journal. But we realized there was still one step further we could go, which is why we’re excited to announce the new Concealed Journals feature. If you’ve ever wanted to journal on public transportation, an airplane, or in a coffee shop, you know that wandering eyes can catch a glimpse of what’s on your device. To prevent this, we added the ability, on a journal by journal basis, to conceal content. It’s easy to conceal and unconceal content by simply tapping the eye icon. The feature is available in version 6.6 on the Mac and iOS and can be downloaded from the App Store. If you’re looking for more detailed instructions on how to set up Concealed Journals, take a look at our help guide.
