Easier use for Password-protected folders

Easier use for Password-protected folders

Explorer | Level 3

Hello! Just wanted to post some quick quality of life updates that I would love to see for ease of use/better user experience: 

1. Show password/lock icon on folders which have been assigned a password-protected link.

Bonus: Maybe with an option to copy the password to the clipboard? 

Mockup of an example of how it could be shown: 



Side note: you could also add an icon for the share-able link too, so you can click it to copy the link instead of opening the interface.


2. The ability to auto-generate a random password and copy to clipboard for the password-protected file links would be a huge improvement. Especially when I need to change/add passwords for multiple clients frequently. 



Thank you!
