Dropbox Vault Password and Sensitive File Protection Support Expanded

Dropbox Now Protects Passwords and Sensitive Files for All (But, for a Price)

Dropbox Vault is now accessible to everyone, although users will have to upgrade to Dropbox Plus or Professional to use it…

File hosting service Dropbox offers cloud storage, file syncing, and more. It also can help to protect passwords and sensitive files. Now, it’s opened the latter functions up to everyone, after testing in a beta run. However, the new features aren’t free, so anyone interested in using them will have to pay for a subscription.

There’s actually two different services here: Passwords and Vault. The first is obviously a password manager. Meanwhile, the other is a security section where users can store sensitive files, such as ID cards, bank statements, and more. Passwords is compatible with Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows. Vault provides an extra layer of security by requiring a PIN code, along with the ability to designate other people as authorized to access information.

Both Passwords and Vault require a subscription to either Plus or Professional accounts. Plus costs $12 per month or $120 per year. But, there is a free feature. Dropbox has released a computer backup tool. It automatically syncs folders on PCs or Macs, so they are always available for retrieval.
