How secure is Dropbox?

How secure is Dropbox?

New member | Level 2
I know in the past Dropbox has received a bad name in terms of its cyber security. I haven’t kept up with what has happened since the little slip up some time back. What’s been done to adiquetly protect users?

Hey there (@LKY99), while you can have a look at this resource that explains matters thoroughly, if you’re concerned in regards to account security matters, then I’d suggest having a look at the Account Security checkup tool, which is a flow that would let you validate & update your account information. This will allow you to update multiple facets of your account simultaneously such that it is accurate and current. These steps were previously available individually on your Account Page under the Security tab, but are now also combined for convenience.
 
Hopefully this addresses your initial concern, however please do let me know here if you have any additional questions or I’ve misunderstood your inquiry in any way!

What is the security status of files stored on Dropbox today? Do you recommend that family financial, health or Social Security dics not be kept on Dropbox? Thanks.
