How to Password Protect Your Google Drive Files

In many ways, Google Drive is an immensely useful tool: it lets you store all of your files in a single place that you can then access from anywhere and from any device. It also makes sharing files and folders with team members or collaborators essentially seamless. But the ease with which Google makes your files accessible to you may also be a major drawback. Because you’re always logged in to Google both on your computer and your phone, it can be easy for someone else to access your Google Drive files if you lose one of your devices or leave it unattended.
