If I have a plan that can password protect a file, and I send that password protected file to a recipient that has the free version, does the password protected feature still work on the recipient?

Hi @jcg944, thanks for reaching out to us. 

 

In general, once a file is locked, only they can unlock it and anyone with access to the file can view, comment on, and share a link to it.

 

You can find more information about this, here

 

I hope this helps!
