It’s September, which means it’s back-to-school season! Whether you’re just about to start classes or in the middle of your school year, we want to make your life a little easier. So, we’re giving you a way to earn extra Dropbox space to manage your schoolwork and (and life in general) by participating in the 2015 Dropbox Campus Cup!
iOS 9 is here, and iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are on the way, so we’re giving the Dropbox app for iOS an update. Starting today, you’ll see a handful of improvements that make getting to your files simpler, quicker, and even a little more fun.
Now, you can drag and drop URLs into your Dropbox — on the web and on your desktop — and open them on any of your devices. This means you can take your bookmarks anywhere, instead of having them confined to a certain browser on a certain computer. But it also means you can organize all your information, no matter the format, into Dropbox folders — so your information is in one central place.
In 2011, when Dropbox had just 35 employees, we held our first-ever Hack Week. It gave us a chance to get back to our roots: small, agile groups of creative Dropboxers solving exciting problems together. We transformed the office into a giant workshop, and turned the ideas that we’d been dreaming up into reality. Since then, we’ve grown to over 1,200 employees in offices around the world, and Hack Week has grown into a beloved annual tradition of exploring how we can make Dropbox better for our users.
At Dropbox, we don’t like boundaries — we think people make their best stuff when they’re given the creative freedom to pursue their wildest ideas.
Making sure only you can access your account is an important part of keeping Dropbox safe. Today, we’re adding Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) security keys as an additional method for two-step verification, giving you stronger authentication protection.
