If you're concerned about someone accessing your OneDrive files, you can improve your protection by enabling fingerprint or face ID unlocking. Your confidential information deserves to be protected, and now you can easily do it. Do not worry anymore – if you need to use someone else's phone with a password-protected OneDrive, sneaky file grabbers will be unlucky.
Depending on your job, you may have some confidential data that you need to make sure no one has access. The ability to double-lock your files (one lock on your phone and the other on your OneDrive app) is convenient, regardless of what you're doing professionally. Children and spies who use your device can not view or manipulate the files that are important to you.
: Open Settings
Open the OneDrive App ( Android | iOS). Under Android, tap the "Me" tab at the bottom right. In iOS, tap the profile picture or silhouette icon in the upper left corner. Then tap the "Settings" button and select the "Code" button in the next screen.
Step 2: Enable Biometric File Lock
On the Code screen, tap Get Code. You will be asked to create a PIN. Be sure to create a PIN that you can remember or write down. After confirming your PIN, you may see a pop-up window: "Enable Fingerprint for OneDrive" on Android or "Unlock Face ID" on iOS. If your iOS device does not have a face ID, you'll be asked to unlock it with the Touch ID. Enable this option when prompted.
On the Passcode screen, you can disable password protection, change your password, change the password time-out (Android only), and enable or disable the use of your fingerprint to protect your files. This also applies to iOS, except that it is a face ID or Touch ID, depending on the device.
When you exit and re-enter the app, you are prompted to authenticate using biometrics. On iOS, you will be prompted by the app with a pop-up message "Face ID with OneDrive?" Here you need to tap "Allow" for the first time to activate the protection. Now your files are password protected and you can think about more important things.
