Use Passcode to Protect Your Data

Learn how to set, use, and change a passcode on Journey.

Set a passcode on Journey to protect your data. (If your device supports fingerprint, you can also use your fingerprint to unlock the app).

Your passcode resets once you reinstall the application. If you lose your device, please change your Google password immediately. Synchronisation/downloading of data with Google Drive halts if the Google password is changed. You can also consider wiping the data in Android remotely (See link).

Set up a passcode

  1. Go to Settings > Passcode.
  2. Set the 4 digit passcode, then tap tick button.
  3. Confirm the 4 digit passcode, then tap tick button again.

Replace passcode

  1. Go to Settings > Passcode.
  2. Enter the 4 digit old passcode.
  3. Set the new 4 digit passcode, then tap tick button.
  4. Confirm the new 4 digit passcode, then tap tick button again.

Remove passcode

  1. Go to Settings > Passcode.
  2. Enter the 4 digit old passcode, then tap tick button.
  3. Passcode is removed.

Activate Passcode

Once you set up the passcode successfully, the passcode is required when you:

  • Access to journal data
  • Publish entries
Passcode Activation

Please exit the app by pressing the “Back” button to lock the app immediately. Otherwise, if you switch out of Journey into another app, Journey only locks after a few minutes of inactivity.

Take Note

Passcode is not required if you create a new entry in editor.

Forget your Passcode

If you forget your passcode, please reinstall (or clear app data and cache) the application to reset your passcode. Go to Journey.Cloud to check if all of your entries have successfully synced with Google Drive before reinstalling. If you lose your device, please change your Google password immediately.
