The SpinCount property specifies the number of times the hashing function shall be iteratively run (using each iteration's result as the input for the next iteration) when attempting to compare a user supplied password with the hash data. That is, it specifies the number of iterations used to calculate the Strong Password Verifier; by default, 100 000. High SpinCount values strengthen protection but decrease performance.

The property is in effect only if the SpreadsheetProtectionOptions.UseStrongPasswordVerifier property is set to true.
