can you please add password protection option on onedrive folder in explorer, so i can only access all my personal data y myself and if someone login to my pc than still he willl not access my onedrive.
Use the personal vault, people.
Yes, I would like that too.
OneDrive local storage is not secure!
Anyone having access to your PC, also has access to your local OneDrive files...
This is strange, as OneDrive Online does have password protection.
Newly introduced Personal Vault is an additional layer of protection.
But if your PC needs to be serviced, or your laptop is stolen, then all your OneDrive files can be viewed/copied, whatever.
Microsoft should really add at least an option to have the local OneDrive folder password protected. Sync only to take place once OneDrive becomes available (after entering pw).
I think there are many similar requests.

Vainly searched for comments from Microsoft - probably the idea isn't even considered, even though it is a major security issue, from my point of view.
I would like password protection when OneDrive starts up, if someone steals my computer I fear they would access to my OneDrive in the cloud.
Protecting & encrypting the local OneDrive folder as well would be an added bonus.
Urgently needed. Microsoft, please give this priority, it's definitely a must in the age of IT Security

Maybe have auto encryption/decryption based on the key of the user account used to login.

Pass word protect is available on iPhone and iPad.
But not on desktop acccess!
It is strange Miss from Microsoft!
Please add password protect for One Drive! Not having this simple feature has put into question whether I will carry on with this service. Having access via any devise - security is why I purchased One Drive.
