Changing Password for Samsung Notes

I have created a note in the stock application "Samsung Notes". I know the password to the note, and I can access it fine, but I want to change the password.

There doesn't seem to be an option for changing the password anywhere, and even if I create a new note and lock that one, it seems to follow the password I've already set. I can't seem to find the answer online either.

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

 

P.S. I am not referring to the mobile phones known as "Samsung Galaxy Notes". I am referring to the application that comes with Samsung mobile devices, called "Samsung Notes", which previously was called "S Memos".

 Am using a Samsung Galaxy J7 V and you can change the password:

1. Opening the Samsung notes app

2. Pressing the 3 vertical dots in the top right corner

3. Selecting settings

4. Selecting "lock notes"

5. Selecting "change password"

Then enter the old password and then the new password.

Go into it as if you were going to put in the password as normal BUT Select change password Then WITHOUT typing anything select Reset Password From there you're going to have to log into your Samsung account, then logging in it should allow you to change it without having to know your previous Notes Password 😊 Hope that helps

Thank you. I finally figured out my Notes PW is different from my Samsung account PW. That made all the difference too.
