I made a simple 4 digit password to lock Notes.

I can't remember when I did it, or how change it to a longer one?

I googled and it seems the only way on phone? settings. confusing. says reset password. I did that, but did not work?

Is that resettting my apple ID? Totally confusing. Thankfully is did not do that. I'm not sure what it did, but I still don't know how to change notes password.

I tried locking a note and the screen to set up the lock clearly states if you forget the password you will not be able to access locked notes.

Reset your notes password

When you reset your Notes password, it doesn't delete or change the password of your notes that are already locked. If you have a note that uses an old password, you can update it to the new password when you enter the old password, remove the old password, then apply your new password to the note.

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:

Go to Settings > Notes > Password.
Tap Reset Password.
Enter your Apple ID password.
Tap Reset Password again.
Enter your new password and password hint.

On your Mac:

Open Notes.
In the menu bar, click Notes > Reset Password > OK.
Enter your Apple ID password.
Click Reset Password.
Enter your new password and password hint.
