        I think, Microsoft dont read all the posts. Just looking forward to get more $$$.
        I'm also think, its a basic feature to protect files and folders.

        It would be very nice to be able to password protect a link so that I can revoke access to a link without destroying the link itself. That would give me audit capabilities to determine what document an outside party has/had access to.

        I have just looked at using one drive, but have been put off by the lack of password protection. Please would you add this.

        Could you please search "password protect" and see how many different posts and votes are associated with this issue? It's crazy you haven't responded to it already.

        Please add the password protection option for folders and files in OneDrive NOW. Can't believe you didn't include this from the beginning! I like so much about onedrive but can't use it without password protection of files and folders.

        Hey, if you want to vote for encrpted OneDrive, please support the "Zero Knowledge Encryption" Feature suggestion. This would mean only the user would have access, and even Microsoft would have no access. This is they only truely safe way for encryption, and used by security focused cloud storage provides, and third party software.

        I'm curious as to why it takes so long to get "standard" features into OneDrive & OneDrive for Business? A single syncing client that supports both OneDrive & Sharepoint took a year+. Password protecting a single file? File access expiration dates? Ability to utilize OneDrive as a "fileshare" similar on on premise servers? All of these are standard, required functionality that all the other guys seem to already have. What good is having 1TB of OneDrive storage if we have to go out and buy another solution just to have functional file sharing?

        hi i have a file to share on the one drive with a password , can i share the file and the receiver not to need the password to open file ???

        this would be a killer feature! i'd love to see it implemented!

        please combine the ideas about "Password protect", as there are 30+ similar requests.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Completely agree this is a must have feature! I use my Onedrive for absolutely everything and it would be great if I could password protect more sensitive areas (i.e. pay information and policies).

        Or, could you just add the ability to password protect OneDrive in general? I like to stay logged in to my Google account. If my tablet, laptop or phone is stolen, I'd like to know that my files have a bit of extra protection.

        Thanks for your reply Douglas Pearce. Hope your status quickly changes from "Thinking about it" to "Working on it". I can see that first comment was made in 2014 already. Would be great to have this extra security layer. Seems like a simply tool to add to the current cloud tools. And also a very useful tool that will benefit a lot of us. Thanks in advance.

        Totally support this. expiry dates would be a nice to have but basic password protection is needed to compete with dropbox, box and sharefile

      • BillBill commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        An obvious feature - should have been in rev 1.0
        And the discussion has been active since April 2015
        Is anyone prioritizing these requests?

        Please add the password protection option for folders and files in OneDrive. Shared links that are available now are not secure enough.
