Glide Updates: Protected Columns

Sometimes when we make apps with Google Sheets we may need to use sensitive user data according to what our app is about.

If we don't want this data to be readily available to download then with the new update we can protect columns of our sheet.

Example of how to mark as protected.

How can we do it?

In the Glide Data Editor we can take that column and make it a protected one. Once you protected it, it'll be inaccessible in both the data editor and in the app so no one can download that specific data.

Remember that it's important to protect your user's data and Glide now gives us more tools than ever to protect our users and our project.
