How to: Sharing your Standard Notes subscription with others

In recent weeks, the team at Standard Notes have added the ability for users to share their subscription with 5 other people. If you are subscribed to the Professional plan, you can share it with a significant other, family member or friends - and they get the same features like maximum note revisions, shared 100GB of encrypted storage and encrypted backups on their desktop computers.

Sharing a subscription with others is easy and requires a few steps.

Before following these steps, you need to make sure that the person you want to share the subscription with has set up a free Standard Notes account. If they haven't done this, the invite link will not work when accepting.

To share your Professional subscription:

  • Open your preferences menu in the bottom left corner of the Standard Notes app.
  • On the account section, scroll down to the "subscription sharing" box and click on the "invite button."
  • Input the invitee email into the box and click "send invite."

The invitee will then get an email containing a clickable link.
When clicking on the link, they should get a text dialogue stating the following;


Congrats! You've successfully shared your subscription.

Please note:

  • If the text dialogue shows "success:false" at the end after the invitee has clicked the link, the invite did not work.

  • Shared subscriptions DO NOT get unique storage. Everyone shares the 100GB encrypted storage.

  • You can remove an invitee from sharing the subscription by removing their email from the "shared subscription" box in the Standard Notes preferences menu.

You'll only receive email when they publish something new.
