Security Concern Connecting Android app to Work Group in Win 10

Hello all,

I recently installed Windows 10 and unlike in Windows 7, my sign in is now my outlook login. This concerns me when I use android apps to access files in my work group through LAN, for example ES File Explorer, because I now need to input my outlook password through these third party apps. Does anyone else share this concern or have any opinions on it? Is there a way I can make my computer user password different from my Microsoft Outlook password so I don't need to input it through these apps? And can I do that while still staying connected to Microsoft Outlook, as it is convenient for accessing other Microsoft applications?

Thank you,
