We’ve been focused since day one on building products that are simple and convenient to use. As part of that mission, we’re working hard to improve the Dropbox experience for our users who rely on accessibility technologies and we’ve made some significant new improvements to our iOS app. Whether you’re using Dropbox for iOS to backup your photos or fixing up a spreadsheet for work, it should be simple and easy to get stuff done with Dropbox, no matter what.
We want to be a company where Dropboxers from any background can build a career they love. That’s why we’re committed to assembling a team with diverse perspectives to continue building innovative products for our users around the world. At Dropbox, we’re working hard to minimize the biases that exist in the workplace by changing how we recruit, promote and retain employees with unique life experiences.
Starting today, we’ll be gradually rolling out this functionality to iOS users. Download the latest Dropbox and Office apps to get them automatically. Android users — these features are coming to you in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
One of the best things about Dropbox is that you can use it on almost any device, or even switch between devices without missing a beat. That’s why we’ve partnered with HP and Acer — to help make Dropbox instantly available on even more PCs and tablets, where you can access, collaborate, and share your stuff.
Dropbox has already been preloaded on some of the newest HP and Acer tablets, and PCs will follow in early 2015. Earlier this month we also launched a special space promotion on eligible HP and Acer devices.
Here are a few steps you can take to ensure you’re safely transmitting your important information online, on or off of Dropbox.
Recent news articles claiming that Dropbox was hacked aren’t true. Your stuff is safe. The usernames and passwords referenced in these articles were stolen from unrelated services, not Dropbox. Attackers then used these stolen credentials to try to log in to sites across the internet, including Dropbox. We have measures in place to detect suspicious login activity and we automatically reset passwords when it happens.
Attacks like these are one of the reasons why we strongly encourage users not to reuse passwords across services. For an added layer of security, we always recommend enabling 2 step verification on your account.
