Each journal can be locked with encryption and have it's own default theme to fit the type of journal. And then access each journal (locked or unlocked) from your mobile phone!

Ultimate Privacy

Ultimate Privacy

By signing up for a Pro account, not only can you lock individual entries, you can choose to encrypt them. The encryption is military-grade, and so secure that if your password is lost or forgotten, it will never be able to be unlocked. That's right, even we cannot unlock encrypted entries for you. If you think you might forget your password, use a hint that will help you remember.

We use the same encryption algorithm used by the US Government: 256-bit AES encryption. A brute force attack–checking a billion billion keys per second–on an encrypted entry would take sexdecillions of years (3 x 1051) to crack. How many years is that? To give you an example, the earth is only 4.55 x 109 years old.

Stay Organized

Stay Organized

Penzu Pro offers a great way to group and organize your entries: Tagging. You can effortlessly keep track of multiple entries by assigning a common tag.

For example, if you were on a trip around the world, and wanted to group your entries from each country, you could tag each entry from Thailand with the tag "Thailand", each entry from Japan with the tag "Japan" and so on.

You can then easily view all of the tagged entries on your Entries page by clicking the Tags button on the main toolbar.



Don't know what to write? Having trouble getting started journaling? Just click the light bulb on the top right of the pad to get a dose of inspiration. Our database of questions, quotes, and exercises are sure to spark your imagination.

With Pro, you can shuffle through different types of prompts and when you want to answer one, just click the lock button to have it permanently "attached" to your entry.
