    Well, since oxygen os is a near stock android os, if Google itself thinks that this is not a required feature for Android, I guess that oneplus thinks the same.

    To complete what is said above, OxygenOS offers you many ways to secure your device.
    - your whole storage is encrypted, so you can only access it after entering your PIN code / fingerprint.
    - you can hide some apps in hidden drawer, and lock access with your fingerprint, so that if you were to lend your unlocked device, access to these apps is protected.
    - you can store files in hidden folder, which works the same.
    - you can lend your device in guest mode, so that your whole storage is invisible.
    - you can set a secondary account to give access to a separate storage space and only to certain apps.
    Hope this will help.
