How To Put Password On Onedrive Folder

OneDrive is a cloud-based storage service provided by Microsoft. It allows users to store and share files across multiple devices. However, sometimes you may want to protect your sensitive files from unauthorized access. In this article, we will show you how to put a password on a OneDrive folder.

Step 1: Open OneDrive

First, open the OneDrive app or go to the OneDrive website and log in with your Microsoft account. Once you are logged in, you will see all your files and folders.

Step 2: Select the Folder

Next, select the folder that you want to protect with a password. Right-click on the folder and choose “Share” from the context menu.

Step 3: Create a Link

In the sharing dialog box, click on the “Get a link” button. This will create a unique link that you can share with others to access the folder. However, we want to protect this folder with a password, so we need to change some settings.

Step 4: Set Permissions

In the sharing dialog box, click on the “Anyone with the link” option and select “Only people in your organization can access this item.” This will restrict access to only those who have a Microsoft account within your organization.

Step 5: Add Password

Finally, click on the “Add password” button and enter a strong password. Make sure to remember this password as you will need it to access the folder in the future. Click on the “Apply” button to save your changes.


By following these steps, you have successfully put a password on your OneDrive folder. This will help protect your sensitive files from unauthorized access. Remember to keep your password safe and secure, and only share it with trusted individuals.
