Password protection for folder / files

Hi everybody,

 

I just have the basic dropbox account, but would like to protect certain folders in my Dropbox with a password - is that possible? and if, how?

 

Would be thankful for every recommendation.

 

Thx

 

Best Regards

With paid accounts there is the Vault feature which creates a single location with additional security, but beyond that, no, that's not possible on a Basic account. Dropbox doesn't have the ability to add a separate password to other files and folders.

Hey @veritas, and welcome to our Community!

We do have this feature, called Dropbox Vault

It secures and organizes your most sensitive documents in the cloud. You can guard your content, using a numeric password, or “PIN.” Like a folder, you can access it from any device you use with Dropbox.

However, this feature is available to users on the Dropbox Plus, Professional, and Family plans.

How does this sound?

Keep me posted.
