Microsoft is rolling out a new update for its cloud storage service, OneDrive, for Windows Phone bringing multiple accounts support, access protection with PIN code, and new albums features, which the company announced previously.

After updating OneDrive to the latest version for the Windows Phone, users can go to the Settings page of the app and configure a PIN code to help protect your files from accidental deletion, editing, and more importantly to avoid prying eyes from accessing all your files.

Now, OneDrive for Windows Phone can store multiple Microsoft accounts to make it easier to access data on different storages. Once the an account is setup, you don’t have to re-enter the sign-in credentials again.


Finally, users can create, view and share albums from within the app, features what were only available via the web version.


“You can create an album using pictures and videos from anywhere in your OneDrive. And, when you or people who share them with view them, it’s a much better experience: your photos stand front and center, thumbnails are larger, photos are edge-to-edge, and everything is arranged together into a beautiful collage.” – Microsoft explains.
