Methods for protecting and unprotecting changes in Word, Excel and Powerpoint documents using Office Web API
Need for protecting and unprotecting Word, Excel and PowerPoint content that is open, saved or closed when using the Office Web apps. Using Office Web API there needs to be events that can be caught related to opening, saving and closing these types of files using Office Web apps and content protected or unprotected by password.
We can toggle the protection of Word and Excel files when opened on the Desktop and the same ability being available with the Web versions of Word and Excel would make the experience the same. These would be great new API methods
The ability to toggle the security on files using code that are opened of a stored file would be great! Being able to apply or un-apply Encryption to an open or stored via code would also be a nice feature.

We post Excel and Word files on OneDrives and SharePoint in protected mode and we cannot open them in web version because they are protected. We need a method to unprotect and/or protect files using code.
