The company Dropbox has announced new features among which there is a password manager and a safe online.
Dropbox, one of the most popular services of online storage, will offer its users new services. The first is Dropbox Password, a password manager that will also be accessible via an application on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. It uses the same principle as the other applications, namely, to retain and securely store all of his passwords centralized in one place. In fact the company had noticed that a lot of people were using Dropbox to store his passwords and synchronisait their password manager existing with it. Now the company offers its own dedicated service. This service will be integrated directly to the subscribers, Dropbox More without any additional cost.
She has also developed a folder of storage of a file online called ” Vault “. This folder is secured with a 6 digit code. It will help to store important documents like his identity card, his passport and other sensitive documents. Dropbox indicates that the documents will be encrypted when they are downloaded. Access to the Dropbox Vault can be shared selectively in the event of an emergency. This service will initially be available for users of Dropbox More in private beta version.
The third novelty is a solution for automatic backup on the computer. It works as well on Mac as on PC. The files contained in ” Desktop “, “Documents” and “Download” will be synchronized. However, for this to work, the user will have to disable iCloud Drive. It will not be possible to share its documents directly to another Dropbox. In contrast, a share link may be generated and transmitted directly.
Three other new developments to report
In addition to these major innovations, the other three are also to be mentioned : the first is a function of e-signature for the files on the Dropbox. The company had in fact made the acquisition of HelloSign in the last year that she chooses from now on to integrate directly into its service. This means that the user will be able to send, receive and sign documents without having to leave Dropbox. This feature will also be available for a limited number of users in private beta in the coming weeks.
The second is the launch of Dropbox App Center for you facilitates retrieval of third-party services compatible. Before it was necessary to dig into the account settings to check the compatibility. With this new all-compatible applications are centralized in one place. Again, only a few users in a first time will benefit from Dropbox App Center in beta.
Finally a family plan with 2 Tb of storage, which can benefit up to six users is in preparation. Each user will have his or her private space, even if a common space may be dedicated to the whole family. The price of this new service is not yet known at this time.
