Google Keep – Frequently Asked Questions

I have said it before, and I’ll say it again – Google Keep is a sadly under-rated note taking application.

But if you, like me, are a Google Keep fan then you might have had some questions about it – so here’s my FAQ on Google Keep which’ll hopefully help resolve some of those niggling questions you (or a friend!) might have.

And if your question isn’t answered here, then please do drop a comment below, or get in touch separately.

Are Google Keep notes encrypted?

No. There is no encryption applied to Google Keep notes at all.

I definitely do not recommend storing any sensitive information (passwords, personal identification information, bank details etc) in it. Instead use an app that’s specifically designed to hold all that information securely.

What’s the difference between Google Keep and Google Tasks?

Google Keep is a stand-alone note-taking application that allows you to:

  • write long form notes
  • add location and time based reminders
  • create notes from dictation; on-screen writing; and by converting images to text
  • colour code and tag notes
  • share notes with other people.

Google Tasks is tied into Google Calendar. You can add short descriptions to a task and add time based reminders but that’s about it.
