How To Video: Password protect Google Drive, Docs, and Sheets on iOS1:18 /
CNET’s Dan Graziano shows you how to add an extra layer of security to your cloud files.
[MUSIC]. If you're like me, you keep everything in the cloud, from personal files to important work documents. But what if someone gets access to your files, or even deletes them? That would be a huge problem. I'm Dan Graziano and I'm going to show you how to password protect the Google Drive, Docs and Sheets apps on your iPhone or iPad. The process is relatively simple, and only takes a few seconds to complete. From inside any of these three apps, open the Navigational panel with a swipe from left to right. Click the Gear icon to open the Settings menu, Select Passcode Lock, and enable the feature. You'll be asked to enter a four digit pincode and then to confirm that code. Once it's set, you will have the option to always having to require a pin when accessing your files, to change the code, and to remove it. Try it out and you will see that the next time you try to open your Google drive, your Docs, or Sheets on your iOS device, you will be prompted to enter a passcode.
