    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Hi – due to concerns expressed by people who did not like the way the lock symbol was added to protected sheets, we will stop showing it on sheet tabs in Excel for Windows for the time-being. We may bring it back in the future in some other fashion.

    If you’d like to see a lock symbol or some other visual indicator when a sheet is protected, please add your vote and comment here.

    Here’s the related discussion –

    Please may we have this feature back, it makes navigating Excel so much easier, and Google sheets has it, no reason why Excel should be falling behind. I feel like I have taken steps back in doing work daily.
