Dropbox's password manager and secure file vault come to premium users

They're officially out of beta, but require a Dropbox Pro account.


Dropbox’s long-awaited password manager debuted last month in a beta test. Now, it’s officially headed to Dropbox Pro and Plus users. The company’s Vault for secure file storage, meanwhile, is also arriving for Plus subscribers. But that’s not all: Dropbox’s PC backup feature is also launching today, and it’ll be available to both paying and free users. Finally, the company is adding branding options and analytics for Professional users who need to share files with clients.

Like LastPass and other competing products, Dropbox Password is a secure place to store your login credentials and make them accessible across Windows, Mac, Android and iOS. While it’s not exactly groundbreaking, its inclusion in Dropbox’s premium plans may encourage existing users to give up on memorizing passwords, and move towards a more secure password manager. The Vault, on the other hand, is a secure storage repository for your most important files. You can protect access with a PIN, as well as open it up to trusted family and friends.
