Software Giant Microsoft Adds New OneDrive Consumer Storage Plans

If you store files in the new Personal Vault area, you’ll be prompted for an additional code each time you access them via the web, PC, or mobile devices

The consumer version of Microsoft’s OneDrive Cloud storage service is getting new storage plan and security options.

The software giant has announced new paid OneDrive Personal plans for OneDrive customers and Office 365 consumer subscribers and its OneDrive Personal Vault feature.

The new OneDrive Personal Vault feature will be protected by an additional step of identity verification, such as a PIN, fingerprint/facial authentication, or a two-factor authentication (2FA) code.

If you store files in the new Personal Vault area, you’ll be prompted for an additional code each time you access them via the web, PC, or mobile devices, The Verge reported on Tuesday.

The tech behemoth is rolling out this feature to the web version of OneDrive, the iOS and Android mobile apps, and Windows 10 PCs; it is however, only rolling out to Australia, New Zealand, and Canada for the time being.

It will be available to all markets by the end of the year. Microsoft appears to be one of the first companies to add such a feature to its Cloud storage. iCloud, Google Drive, and Dropbox do not support 2FA-protected folders yet, the report added. (IANS)
