Changing the Password for a Protected Section

Changing passwords is very important if you think your original password has been compromised. This can happen if you become aware of someone having watched your keyboard while you entered a valid password or when someone with whom you shared a password should no longer have access to the protected information (for example, when a colleague at work leaves a confidential project to go work on another team).

Provided that you have the correct password for a protected section, you can change it at any time by doing the following:

1.
Navigate to and then unlock the protected section whose password you want to change.

2.
In the Password Protection task pane, click Change Password (see Figure 6).

Figure 6. If the password for a protected section should become compromised, you can click the Change Password button in the Password Protection task pane to assign a new password to that section.


3.
In the Change Password dialog box that appears, first type the current password into the Old Password box.

4.
In the Enter New Password box, type a new password for the current section. Remember that passwords in OneNote are case sensitive.

5.
In the Confirm Password box, type the new password again. Only if this confirmation matches the new password will OneNote change the password for the current section.

If you type the original password incorrectly into the Old Password box, or if the new password and its confirmation don’t match, OneNote doesn’t change the current password but clears the password fields in the Change Password dialog box so you can try again.

When the old password, new password, and new password confirmation match, OneNote will change the password for the current section. Depending on the speed of your computer, a progress bar may briefly appear while OneNote is changing the password. When the dialog box disappears, the password will have successfully been changed. At that point, the old password for that section will no longer unlock it. You will have to use the new password to view the section again.

If you closed the Password Protection task pane and you want to display it again, right-click the tab of any unprotected section and then click Password Protect This Section on the shortcut menu. When the task pane appears again, navigate to the protected section that you want to work with by clicking its section tab.


Removing the Password for a Protected Section

When the notes in a protected section are not considered any more secret or sensitive in kind, you can choose to remove protection by password against this section. The elimination of a password can also be a provisional convenience all the times that you must carry out the work of edition prolonged in the sections protected by multiple and you become opposed with their automatic dead time. Naturally, in this last case, be sure to reapply password protection to such sections again when your work is finished..

To unprotect a protected section so it no longer requires a password to be viewed, do the following:

1.
Navigate to and then unlock the protected section whose password you want to remove.

2.
In the Password Protection task pane, click Remove Password (refer to Figure 6).

3.
In the Remove Password dialog box that appears, type the current password for the section and then click OK.

If you enter the current password incorrectly, OneNote won’t remove the current password. When you enter the current password correctly, the password is removed from the current section. You can verify this by looking at the confirmation text under the Current Section heading near the top of the Password Protection task pane.

When you no longer need the Password Protection task pane, you can regain some screen space by closing it. To do so, click the small X in the upper-right corner of the task pane to dismiss it.
