How can we improve Excel for Mobile Devices

Password protection of spreadsheet

I just posted this question to Microsoft forums and found out that this feature is still not functional in Excel for iOS:
I'm using Excel on an iPad Pro and would just tried to find a way to password protect a spreadsheet I'm saving to OneDrive. Searching the general web and these forums didn't readily surface an answer. I've seen old responses indicating that it wasn't possible to password protect a single sheet in 2014; however, I'd be surprised if it's not even possible to password protect an entire spreadsheet in the latest version of Excel for iOS.

    May 2019 and the password protection feature is still not available for Excel mobile!
    Unbelievable

    Use Numbers or a 3rd party Office until this issue is resolved. Not being able to protect sensitive info in 2018 is unacceptable, given all the hacking / data breaches going around.

    Incredible that this does not exist. Incredible that we are shoved to User Forums where venting is the only recourse.
