With coworkers and family members scattered all over the world, staying organized and maintaining a work-life balance can be challenging.

That’s why we’re launching new products and features to help you stay organized—at home and while you work from home. Dropbox has become the one place to keep life organized 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 autofills them so you can instantly sign in to websites and apps. Now available to select Dropbox Plus users in private beta, Passwords lets you sign in anywhere with apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android devices. Passwords secures your credentials with zero-knowledge encryption, so your passwords are protected and only accessible by you.

New feature: Secure and organize 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 organized 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 select Plus users in private beta.

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 in beta 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 organized 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. Members can create shared spaces to make content easily accessible to the whole family and each member has their own private space for personal content. We're currently beta testing the Dropbox Family product with select Dropbox users and plan to roll it out more broadly throughout the year.

 

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.

Customize your Dropbox experience with the new App Center

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 Center, one centralized place to find those tools from partners including Zoom, Slack, and Google. Now in beta, the App Center lets you discover, learn about, and connect apps to your Dropbox account. This is just the beginning: more apps and functionalities are forthcoming.

We’re excited to bring you new products and features to support your work, your home, and everything in between.
