In order to help users stay organized while working from home, Dropbox has unveiled several new features. In a effort to help consumers remain Work At Home during the global pandemic, a host of new features launched Tuesday for its cloud storage service.
Most of these new features are focused on security and are available in private beta for select Dropbox Plus users, though the company claims it will reach other Dropbox Plus customers in the coming weeks.
Following are the new features;
- Dropbox password manager: Similar to other password managers, Dropbox Passwords stores and encrypts users’ online passwords and it syncs them across all devices to make it easier to log into websites and apps. Dropbox Passwords also comes with zero-knowledge encryption, which means the service provider knows nothing about users’ stored data. It adds an extra level of security, the company indicates.
- Dropbox Vaults : The organization in the blog entry clarifies that Dropbox Vault gives an additional layer of security for all the individual records including protection cards, travel papers, and lodging archives. The Vault organizer sits close by different records and envelopes on Dropbox, however, it very well may be secured with a committed PIN code. Vault is at present accessible to choose Plus clients in private beta.
- Automatic Computer Backup : feature that allows users to automatically sync folders on the PC or Mac, directly into the Dropbox folder. The feature is currently available in beta on Dropbox Basic, Plus, and Professional plans.
The company has also announced a new Dropbox Family plan that lets up to six members share 2TB of storage with one bill. The announcement was shared by the company in a blog post as well as on Twitter. Dropbox claims these plans will enable users to stay organised and focused.
