Please add support for opening password protected workbooks in Excel online. At present it means you have to drop to using the desktop version.

Please introduce this feature within 1 or 2 days. It's fire urgent.

There are multiple other similar ideas proposed already - how to merge to one for voting?
This is critical, particularly in situations such as right now where the sync has broken between online and desktop apps so I have whole teams unable to work because they can't open files in Excel Desktop OR Excel Online. No point offering an online option as a redundancy if it can't function when needed with only modest complexity.
guys, GDPR is comming, what is better way, than pass_protected documets. THX!

Please, this is a big issue for one of our customers.
Agreed... I can't even access my personal excel files because they are locked thru Chromebook. Chromebook doesnt allow you to downlowd microsoft files, so now I cannot use my personal excel files.
Unlocking password protected files from browsers reduces hassle to open them from Excel and dependency of Excel in end user system. Also some controls like check boxes and other controls used in Excel desktop version are not supported.
Please let us know any indicative date of roll out in case these features are already being in development.
