You need to enter your password at least once before you can use Touch ID. So if Touch ID isn't presented as an option the first time, simply enter your password and you should get asked for Touch ID the next.

Touch ID makes the process much faster and more convenient, but also means someone could try and get you to touch the sensor when you're sleeping or otherwise incapacitated.

The body of the note will be hidden when it’s locked, the title of the note will still be visible so you can find it later when you want to unlock it. It's important to make sure you don't leak any information unintentionally and never put anything in the title you wouldn't want anyone else to see.
