What can Dropbox do for you?

In a nutshell: Dropbox keeps you in flow. With distraction-free collaboration tools that work, you can focus on bringing your best ideas to life.


Access what you need from anywhere

Everyone’s always on the move. Dropbox makes it easy to access your stuff anywhere without worrying about file size, no matter what device you might be using. With Dropbox, you don’t have to be chained to your hard drive to access your important files.

Security you can trust

All of those features sound great, but will all of your files, documents, and data stay safe? After all, you’re putting everything you need most in one place.

The answer? Absolutely.

You never have to worry about the safety of your files with Dropbox—we do that for you. Dropbox is designed with multiple layers of protection, including a two-step verification system. You can learn how to enable two-step verification in the Dropbox help center. Once enabled, Dropbox will ask you for a six-digit code or USB security key when signing into a new device. With Dropbox, you can even monitor active web sessions, devices you've signed into, and third-party apps that have access to your account.
