There's a top voted feature request on the Adobe XD UserVoice site regarding commenting and annotations: "Commenting and making annotations + getting notified by e-mail or creative cloud".
Please help us defining this feature by adding your concerns and workflows in the comments.

Regarding your other two questions:
1b: Having a password on shared prototypes is in our backlog. You can get more information, upvote, and add your thoughts here: Password on shared prototypes – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs.
2: I think that's something we're still working out; while the enterprise has access over the user's account, I'm not entirely sure about what our plans are with the data. You should raise this as an issue in UserVoice (https://adobexd.uservoice.com), and I'll definitely point this out to the product manager in charge of the sharing workflow to highlight the issue.
It's been almost a year ever since the last reply on this post,
Are there any updates regarding password protected feature for shared prototypes.
Not at the moment, unfortunately. There are a number of higher priority (and more highly requested) features we're looking at first. Definitely upvote the story if you're interested in it!
I'm currently running a pilot for the future usage of XD as opposed to InVision, which we already use and are happy with. (although a switch to a single suite such as CC is preferred)
The main problem we have is that we only work for large enterprises - meaning that protecting shared prototypes is critical for acceptance. Having an option to invite people to the project instead of just sharing it to the world is a great way of doing this.
So I kind of repeat apocalypts question: what's happened in that year and what developments are currently going in to enable 'team' access to online prototypes instead of just open sharing it.
not sure how to up vote the story by the way... Can't seem to find that button?
Here's the link to upvote password protection, though I'm not sure you're looking for this specifically. Password on shared prototypes – Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs
If you look on the left side of the link (underneath the number of people who have voted), you can vote by clicking on "Vote."
I think what you're looking for is really sharing within teams, which is something we're working on in our Cloud workflows. There's a lot going on behind the scenes having to do with workflows within teams, and there's a lot we're working on that will help with your team's workflows. However, we can't share details with you quite yet, as it's still in progress.
Hope that clarifies things a bit!
@elainecc : Thanks for pointing me to the voting page.
Looking forward to the features of sharing within teams. Am worried a bit though about who can be on a team? Within our larger enterprise customers we'll need to have stakeholders on board that don't have (and will not have due to a very large amount of reasons) an Adobe CC licence. Luckily, those types of stakeholders only need to provide feedback / discussions / reviews so no editing.
So I am curious if you can invite a non Adobe member to the team with viewing and commenting rights.
That's something that we're still exploring at the moment. Please definitely upvote, as we send out research opportunities out as well for you to tell us about your specific situation.
You should do it the same way Office 365/SharePoint allows it. I can invite anyone with an O365/Corporate/3rd Party email address to review docs or sites. When they get the email and authenticate it creates an external auth record in Active Directory (don't know what you guys use for backend) and then that user has an "account" in our environment but with rights only to what we invited them to. This way they can't share passwords or links and we (my team) can easily audit what things have been shared to whom.
I def think this should have been at the forefront of thought for this project. The very nature of the word "prototype" implies the design of secretive, cutting-edge concepts and therefore security, I would have thought, would have been the very first discussion ever had.
It's an awesome product so far, I'm not knocking it. It just would have been nice to see that addressed sooner rather than later.
I mean, in the short term you could do what lots of the original file share companies did. Just create one-time-use links. At least at that point we know only one link will go to the file, it's not publicly addressable or crawlable via robots or archiving sites, and that it wont be shared around the world.
Upvote which request that specifically addresses this? Can you provide the URL?
Google Docs is similar to O365 for team sharing and invitation. Both require a user to have the respective account already in place as an individual, however. I believe requiring an account helps support traceability. There may also be functional and capability reasons for requiring an account.
Without the account requirement, any email address could be added by an administrator of a team or group without further traceability -- the accountability would be fully on the administrator of the group to verify all members are okay to share with -- which may be fine, but not as secure.
