The "password protected" option has disappeared from my Adobe Xd version 35.1.12
Hi, when you go to the "Share" section, after choosing the "View Setting", immediately below there is an item called "Link Access". From the drop-down menu choose "Anyone with password".
I realized I need to create a new link to see the option. It is not possible to add the password on an already shared link. if instead I create a new connection then I see the option create with password. It wasn't like that before.
I'm glad your Adobe XD problem is resolved. If you need help in the future, please contact us 🙂
