With the help of Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, you can create password protected Office documents. The Window Phone 8.1 Update 1 Developer was launched last week, but still there are lots of features coming out one by one. Now from the latest update you can password protect Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. Only you have  to just encrypt the file with a password, and nobody will be able to open it unless they know the password.  It is a useful feature for sharing sensitive  and private documents.
