Microsoft's OneDrive 'Folder Protection' functionality - What is the eligibility criteria?

Hi
I have a quick question regarding Microsoft's OneDrive 'Folder Protection' functionality.
Article https://support.office.com/en-us/article/sync-your-documents-pictures-and-desktop-folders-with-onedrive-d61a7930-a6fb-4b95-b28a-6552e77c3057 states that 'If you're eligible to protect important Windows folders (such as Desktop, Documents, or Pictures) you'll see a prompt to set up folder protection.' . What is the eligibility criteria? I have the functionality but my wife doesn't. The only difference I can see is a) I run Windows 10 Professional, my wife runs Windows 10 Home (same version and build number) b) I sign in with a hotmail account and my wife signs in with a gmail account.
We are both running the same version of OneDrive
I look forward to receiving your input.
Regards

This article was just put out a couple hours ago.  It states this about eligibility:

"It is important to note that, this new folder protection is being rolled out slowly to all the user and if you don’t see an option for Update folder in the Auto Save tab, it only means that your PC is not yet eligible for folder protection. You may have to wait and check back again if you are eligible for this new OneDrive feature in the near future."

And another article written about a week or so ago:
https://www.howtogeek.com/363720/how-to-enable-microsofts-new-onedrive-folder-protection-in-windows/

"Note that if you don’t see an Update Folders button here, Microsoft says your account isn’t “eligible” for Folder Protection yet. We’re not sure what constitutes eligibility, but we do know that Microsoft is rolling this feature out slowly. If you don’t have it yet, check back again in the near future."
