It would be great if we can connect or open the password protected excel workbook inside Power BI Desktop. Of course we should know & provide the password first.

I can't use powerBI anymore because of the privacy legislation.

We need this. We have large amounts of confidential compensation data we're trying to analyze through Power BI and want it to remain protected.
