OneNote Web App can now edit password protected sections

Last week, Microsoft promised that its free suite of Office Web Apps would receive a number of new features over the next few months. This week, one of those web browser programs, OneNote, got a new addition that should be cool to use for those of us who want to keep some notes confidential.

blog post announcing the feature states that from now on, OneNote Web App users will be able to view and edit notes that have been password protected. Microsoft said this was one of the most requested features from users of the app. It states:

Enabling this feature allows you to access your sensitive information from anywhere. After opening a password-protected section, you can edit its contents, change the section color, create new pages, and even edit the section name.

The blog added that once a user is done with viewing or editing a password protected section in the OneNote Web App, he or she can then put the password back in operation again by selecting "Lock Section" in the right-click menu. The OneNote Web App can also be set up to re-enable the password protection after 10 minutes of use.

While the new update does allow for viewing and editing a OneNote section that's been locked by a password, users must still create the password itself in the desktop OneNote client.
