Today Microsoft has added a new feature for their cloud storage service OneDrive that is aimed at increasing the security of the files you share. The new feature is called “expiring link” which allows premium users of OneDrive to set expiry date to those files which they share. This feature was previously available for the onedrive for business service.

When you select set expiry date checkbox you get an option of number of days after which your link will expire. Which means that the users to whom you have shared this file will not be able to see your file when they click on the link.

There are different premium onedrive plans available for user who want to upgrade visit this page. OneDrive Premium users are those who have paid for either an Office 365 Home or an Office 365 Personal subscription. This feature of setting expiry link is not a new feature rather it is available on another popular cloud storage service like Dropbox which also offers this for DropBox plus users. Its good to see that Microsoft is adding some much needed features to their cloud Service.
