  • Patent number: 11443052
    Abstract: A system is provided for controlling access to data stored in a cloud-based storage service. Data associated with a user account is stored at the cloud-based storage service. A first request to cause a portion of the data to be associated with a heightened authentication protocol is received. In response, the portion of the data is caused to require the heightened authentication protocol for access. A second request for a file that is stored in the area that is associated with the heightened authentication protocol is received. The second request is authenticated based on the heightened authentication protocol. In response to authenticating the second request, permission is granted to access the file. In response to a failure to authenticate the second request, access to the file is denied, while access to files stored in other areas associated with the user account is allowed.
