If the only thing you need to view the note is the title of the notes, how are they encrypted?

Nifty idea but I feel like the internet will ruin this pretty quickly.

The title is hashed using SHA-256 and is stored as the hash only. The title is used to create the AES256 key, which is used to encrypt the note.

Without the title, you can't decrypt the note. Since the title isn't stored, you can't read any of it without inputting the correct title.
