This guide shows you how to enable Security and Encryption for Coda, which allows users to create vaults to store confidential data (secrets) safely. No downloads or installations are needed on your device.
While you can build a page from scratch using the pack, the easiest and fastest way to get started with Security and Encryption for Coda is to use the Security and Encryption for Coda – Secret Template and Security and Encryption for Coda – Vault Template.
