        Until today I just assumed this existed. I can't believe it doesn't? We definitely need it

        You have no intention of doing this,do you? Been thinking about it for almost two years

        Second Comment; business reasons require signing in under a different sign-in option on opening the computer, and when so doing, should require different password access to OneDrive.

        I and others use the same shared 4 computers, usually, but not always, signing in as different users. Especially when guests are using any of the computers a password level of separation is desirable for some drives and for such utilities as OneDrive

        I'll add my support too: please give us the abilty to password protect folders in OneDrive. Thank you.

        Please add this. This feature will make me feel safe to look away from my laptop for a few seconds if I'm using it in public. This feature is very important to me because I've had security breaches into my files by people that have been close to me and strangers. Please add this.

        For me, this is by far the most wanted OneDrive feature.
        We have to resort to 3rd party software to achieve this.

        Yes this is needed otherwise if you open your laptop anyone can access your entire one drive if you leave it opened somewhere or someone swipes it in a bsy venue such as an airport or train station which can easily happen - or if you are distracted while working in an open space. You need security any time to log into One Drive (or multiple one drives if you have them) to be secure.

        Hi yes this is absolutely necessary as when you open your laptop anyone can access the one drive by clicking on one drive. There is 0 security - it is akin to carrying a manula back up around without a password - if you lose it anyone can access your entire back up. So if you are in a rush in a airport for example and someone swiped a laptop whihc you have left open they can access not only your hard drive but your entire cloud. This is not axcceptabel for privacy or data protection for obvious reasons - you need to be able to have security step to actually open One drive - from any location

        Not a question. With all the data breaches left, right and center, having another option to block specific folder from getting hacked is essential

        Nowadays everyone is vulnerable to be hacked , so this option will add another layer of protection and safety .
