mark a droplet as protected, so deleting it require confirm from owners via email
I noticed that destroying a droplet is so easy on Digital Ocean. I have to double and triple check If I'm deleting a correct droplet or not.
I think It's a good idea that I (as a customer) could mark some of my droplets as protected droplets, so destroying them require confirming on owner's email. I mean, DO does not delete the droplet unless the owner confirms via a link sent to his email.
I'll be happy if I see this feature on Digital Ocean.

Makes totally sense to me

Agreed! Accidentally deleting the wrong droplet is way too easy. Please integrate email confirmation!

Being able to require a specific unlock step before destroying makes sense, I guess... but we typically use the console only for debugging and the occasional test system. Everything production is managed through Terraform. Infrastructure as Code people...
