How Secure is Microsoft OneDrive for storing legal documents, financial documents, spreadsheets, and other personal documents? I use Office 365 with comes with 1TB of storage and want to start using the cloud storage.

Time will tell. But to their credit, there hasn't been any known breaches, afaik.

 

Make it more secure by using unique, complex passwords and enabling multi-factor authentication.

 

You can also encrypt the documents prior to storing, if it's a particularly sensitive document.

I've been using OneDrive for more than a year, meanwhile both individually and work as well. It didn't let me down in terms of safety, productivity, protection. Moreover, it is accessible on most of the platforms making things easy when it comes to the syncing files.

How secure is your password?

 

Probably not a case of how secure is OneDrive but more a case of the weakest link, which is generally the end user rather than OneDrive as a service..

a "secure" password means lots of entropy in the password itself but also not using the same password at some other site.

a popular hack these days is to take a leaked login/password from one site and "spray"

across multiple sites to see if it was used elsewhere.

 

also brute-forcing using a dictionary of popular bad passwords etc is common.

Microsoft just upgraded Onedrive to include a "personal vault" a special folder within your onedrive

Appears to include

Bitlocker encryption by default
2FA for that folder, even if its not enabled for the entire onedrive folder

Perhaps some otherthings just getting to know it

Unlike the other platforms, OneDrive has never really been targeted by a major data breach, and most security concerns surrounding the platform usually stem from user error, such as accidentally sharing files with someone they shouldn’t have or using weak credentials. Microsoft has taken steps to remove as many of these issues as possible, and is one of a number of companies championing passwordless logins.
