Need More OneDrive Storage? Check this out!

Yesterday, the General Manager of Microsoft 365 announced new storage plans on OneDrive. If you have a OneDrive account, you can get in on this additional storage.

With an Office 365 account, you can pay $69.99/year in one lump sum (which comes out to about $5.83/month), or pay $6.99/monthly. And with that plan comes with 1 TB of storage. You can, then, choose to upgrade for extra GB.

On top of that, if you only have a “storage only” plan in your OneDrive account, the 50 GB option is increasing to 100 GB for the same price of $1.99/month. Seth Patton writes, “That’s enough space to store over 50,000 pictures (at 2 MB per photo). This new plan is perfect for automatically backing up your phone’s camera roll and scanning and saving documents, receipts, and more right from your phone. You can also use it to back up your files and share and collaborate on documents. This new plan will roll out soon. If you’re currently using our 50 GB plan, you’ll automatically get 50 GB more storage added to your account at no additional cost.”

These new OneDrive plans will be rolling out in the coming months, so be on the look out for them.

Personal Vault Announced by Microsoft

Seth Patton, General Manager of Microsoft 365 introduced OneDrive Personal Vault today on their blog. He states, “With the growing presence and sophistication of online threats, it’s increasingly important to have the right protection and tools to help safeguard your devices, personal information, and files from being compromised.”

This new security feature includes additional protection your more important files and information on your personal account. And while OneDrive initially has its own set of security measures, many customers seemed to want just a little more.

The Personal Vault has some pretty handy benefits, including:

  1. Easy Access: adding a 2-step authentication, fingerprint, PIN code, or a code sent to e-mail or through text.
  2. Scan Documents: using the OneDrive app on your phone, you can take pictures or scan documents and place them directly in your Personal Vault.
  3. Locks up Automatically: after a certain time amount of inactivity, your account locks up on its own.

Personal Vault will be available to everyone by the end of 2019, so keep a look out. However, if you’re in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, you’ll be accessible sooner!
