Today i ahve received an email from Dropbox with the sbject "Complete your Dropbox setup" and inviting me to get started.
It indicates I have completed the step "Create a Dropbox account", then invites me to complete the steps "Download the desktop and mobile apps", "Set up your Dropbox folders" & "Start uploading files!".
I know this email to be legitimately from Dropbox and not from a 3rd party, or some form of Phishing like attempt. Not just was it sent to the very specific & unique address I use only for Dropbox, but also includes via the full technical suite of checks including SPF, DKIM & DMARC.
Here is the thing. I have been using Dropbox since August 2010. I am far from a new member / account, have been using the desktop app since then, the mobile app since 2013 and yeah, most certainly been uploading files / folders for just a tiny amount of time.
So I have to ask, is there a legitimate reason I should be receiving such an email?
