With colleagues and family members scattered all over the world, staying organised and maintaining a work-life balance can be challenging. That’s why we’re launching new products and features to help you stay organised – at home and while you work from home. Dropbox has become the one place to keep life organised and move work forward.
Introducing Dropbox Passwords: Store and sync passwords across all devices
The Passwords app saves your passwords in one safe place and auto-fills them so you can instantly sign in to websites and apps. Your online personal information is better protected and easier for you to manage with Dropbox Passwords.
New feature: Secure and organise your most sensitive documents with Dropbox Vault
Using a PIN for secure access, Vault provides an extra layer of security for all your important personal files like insurance cards, passports and housing documents. Files are organised in the cloud and accessible from any device. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that you can designate trusted friends or family members who can access your files in an emergency. Vault is currently available to Plus and Professional users.
Computer backup syncs folders on your PC or Mac with Dropbox
Once you turn on the computer backup feature, you can automatically back up folders on your PC or Mac, including your Desktop, Downloads and Documents, directly into your Dropbox folder. Files and folders are continuously synced between the cloud and your hard drive and accessible from anywhere. Computer backup is now available on Dropbox Basic, Plus and Professional plans.
Dropbox Family: Creating a digital hub for your loved ones
The Dropbox Family plan keeps your family’s digital lives connected with one organised place to share photos, videos and important documents. Dropbox Family lets up to six members share 2 TB of storage and have their own individual account views – under one plan with one bill. All plan members can use the Family Room folder for shared content like photos, videos and important documents while also maintaining their own private accounts.
New workflow enables paperless signing in Dropbox
We’re bringing the best eSignature and storage solution to market with updates to our HelloSign product. Now you can easily send, securely sign and safely store your most important agreements in one seamless workflow without leaving Dropbox. This functionality will begin rolling out to select users in beta in the coming weeks, and will become generally available to all users next month. To receive updates on availability, visit our HelloSign notification page.
Customise your Dropbox experience with the new App Centre
Integrations with third-party tools have played a key role as we continue to build out our smart workspace. Today we’re launching the new Dropbox App Centre, one centralised place to find those tools from partners including Zoom, Slack and Google. Now in beta, the App Centre lets you discover, learn about and connect apps to your Dropbox account. This is just the beginning: more apps and functionalities are forthcoming.
Dropbox Capture: say more, meet less with video messages and screen recording
Sometimes getting the team together or explaining something over email can be challenging. Dropbox Capture allows you to pre-record video messages with screenshots, visual references and recordings so everyone can watch and review on their own schedule. It’s a great tool to help keep the whole team updated without the need to organise a meeting.
We’re excited to bring you new products and features to support your work, your home and everything in between.
