Option to password-protect folders in OneDrive for added security
Last week we announced a new feature called Personal Vault that will be available soon for OneDrive consumer accounts. See this blog post for more details.
We have no plans to bring Personal Vault to our Commercial customers at this time, but continue to make investments in advanced security features that are unique to the Commercial service.

When is this feature going to be available? This is a MUST to protect confidential files in OneDrive and SharePoint! PLEASE make this feature available ASAP. Thanks!!
I cannot believe that we cannot password protect our folders/files wih Office 365. It is such a fundamental security feature and with GDPR top priorty for businesses these days I don;t udnerstand why this has not been available for a long time. The sooner the Vault is available the better. We need to be able to protect individual folders and files, as well as hold everything in a Vault!
I need to have personal vault in one drive for business!!
need personal vault like feature in one drive business as well
I don't understand why this is not available for the Business Subscriptions.
Surely using it for business should qualify for added security

I moved personal information to Vault. But could not download the Personal Vault to my Mac. Absent this feature this is useless as I can not dynamically update these folders
please add password protection option for personal vault as well. while traveling not always possible to receive incoming sms
I am having challenges getting any 2FA from your verifications, neither the phone call nor the SMS to phone worked for me.

Thanks for implementing this great feature!
But one Question remains: How is the encryption implemented? As a matter of principle, I am very cautious storing personal data in the cloud. In theory, would Microsoft be able to access an decrypt the data if ordered by any authority?

Please add the ability to have a password protected file in the same folder as a standard file accessible by link. Rather odd that this is not already an option.

Hi How Can I protect with password of my folder in onedrive

This is on the verge of being a deal breaker for my company. In the next tech meeting I'll be advocating that we unilaterally move away from OneDrive until this feature is added.

The response of "We're looking at it" is from 2017 it is now 2019 and almost 2 years since. What is the status?
cant belive it

It is 2019.. How come onedrive lack of this feature ? shame..
This is definitely something that should be done as it will add additional security to protect people's documents.
I also cannot believe in this day in age this is not available. It seems negligent in this age of cybercrime.
