Today is Safer Internet Day, and we’re taking the opportunity to promote responsible use of online technology. Everyone can do their part to make the internet a safer place. To help, we’ve put together this list of the most important steps you can take to safeguard your data in the cloud.
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.
Keeping your information safe and secure is a top priority for us at Dropbox, and we think it’s important to keep you informed about how we do that. So while we share all of our big security updates with you as they happen, we know some folks want an even closer look. That’s why we put together this PDF, so you can dig even deeper into our work to protect your stuff in 2014.
We value the confidence you’ve put in us and take the responsibility of protecting your information very seriously.
It’s hard to believe how much we accomplished together this year. Thanks for being with us along the way.
One of the great things about Dropbox is that you can access your information from almost any device. But what if you’ve lost your phone, misplaced your laptop, or sold your tablet? To protect your information, you can unlink your Dropbox account from that device to prevent it from downloading and syncing your files. Here’s how.
We take lots of measures to help keep your files safe when they’re being sent or stored: From SSL, to HSTS, to certificate pinning, and perfect forward secrecy. And while we’re taking these steps, here are a few you can take to ensure you’re safely transmitting your important information online — like photos, usernames and passwords or bank information — on or off of Dropbox.
