Most of us would probably rather not have people read our private thoughts and ideas, as many of them would probably be just plain stupid, way too cringe, or just outright embarrassing. Yet, that’s exactly what could happen when you accidentally leave a notebook out in the open. The FPLife Lockbook Notebook makes sure that doesn’t happen.
An actual physical notebook that has a built-in biometric fingerprint sensor, it puts up an actual physical barrier that will keep people from accessing its contents without the owner’s consent. That way, your mom won’t be able to take a peek in your diary, your classmates won’t find out about the weird thoughts in your head, and unauthorized persons won’t be able to get access to actual confidential notes, whichever your case may be.
Yes, we didn’t know a notebook with a biometric sensor existed either, but that’s exactly what the FPLife Lockbook Notebook brings to your writing stash. Whether you’re a person who likes to keep a personal journal, a creative who enjoys keeping your precious ideas confidential, or just a regular notebook user who values privacy, we imagine this will make for a much more compelling proposition than a standard notebook. Seriously, if you can’t give up the tactile feel of pen-and-paper, this is as secure a tool as you can have as far as jotting down your ideas are concerned.
A control on the spine houses the fingerprint sensor, which will vibrate to let you know when your biometrics have been verified, after which you just slide down to fully disengage the lock and open the notebook. It can store up to two fingerprints on the integrated storage, so you can give access to someone else, in case you’re sharing the notebook with another person. According to the FPLife, the sensor is rated at 10 million scans, with each scan requiring just half a second to register. As with any electronic device, you’ll need to charge the battery to keep the biometrics operational, although with a standby time of 90 days, it will probably take a month or more to run out of charge, unless you use it every few minutes.
The FPLife Lockbook Notebook uses a six-ring binding, which should make it compatible with plenty of refill pages available in the market. That means, you should be able to use it like a regular notebook binder, albeit with the added benefit of a biometric sensor to prevent unauthorized access. Each one comes with 50 ruled pages of 120gsm wood-free A5-size paper, along with two dividers.
The notebook comes with a faux leather cover that leaves it water-resistant, scratch-resistant, and easy to clean. And since it’s, essentially, a portable mini-safe, it comes with inside pockets that you can use to secure small documents and items. Specifically, the left inner side has four card pockets and two elastic holders, while the right side has a notepad pocket (you can use it to hold a passport) and an elastic pen loop.
