Show thumbnails even when password protected

Hello Figma,

It’d be really good for members of the team (viewers and editors) to still be able to see the thumbnails of files when they are password protected.

We use thumbnails to browse our files and password protect is blocking that by showing a grey thumbnail with a key.

Can we instead have that key icon on top of our thumbnails?


YES! Having the gray bg in the gallery view often leads to missing the correct file. The thumbnails make scanning so much easier. Please let the thumbnails be viewable on password protected files.

I second this

Yes Figma, please !

Yes current implementation is not good. The password protect icon should be in the corner as an indication the file is password protected to not interfere with the thumbnail.

This should be fixed asap. A bit amazed the Figma team didn’t think about this as the default.
