Google Sheets don’t have a built-in password-protection feature. However, it allows you to set permissions for each member that has access to your sheet.
Therefore, the only built-in feature to protect your sheets is by restricting access through the share settings. Members can access documents over the internet, but only those with edit access can make changes. That said, you cannot give a member edit access and hide some of the information on the sheet from that member.
If you want to encrypt data and password protect your sheet, you can use a third-party app. Alternatively, if you want to hide a specific sheet, you can do that as well.
Methods to protect your Google Sheet
- Using a third-party tool
- Controlling access via share permissions and settings by:
- Hiding your individual sheet
- Hiding your individual cells
