Add One Time Passwords (OTP) to Dropbox Password Manager

Add One Time Passwords (OTP) to Dropbox Password Manager

Hello. A neat feature websites have been adding is the ability to use a randomly generated code as a way of 2FA. For instance when I login to Amazon I have to use my email and password then the OTP from my password app, in this case 1Pass. The OTP runs on time intervals, generally changing every 30 or so seconds.

Some apps for this are Microsoft or Google authentication. It beats say OTPs such as text messages in case your number is ported out which is something on the rise recently. I try adding the most security I can and I feel these randomly generated OTPs are essential for being secure.

I look forward to if/when this is implemented, until then I will have to stick to 1Pass.

So, I've been looking into the Dropbox Passwords Application and I noticed a critical feature missing from it: the ability to store individual TOTP codes for various logins within the app and remove the need for a third-party authenticator.

 

For example, when storing password information on Dropbox Passwords it looks like the following:

 

  • Username
  • Password
  • Website URL 


However, other services like Bitwarden, 1Password or Keepass look more like this:

 

  • Username
  • Password
  • Website URL
  • TOTP Code
  • Custom Fields / Notes


Allowing people to store TOTP codes within Dropbox Passwords would remove the need for me having to set-up and open Google Authenticator or Authy every time I want to login to one of the services I use, because I can see the TOTP code for the individual login right from within the Dropbox Passwords app!

 

Without this feature, I certainly won't be moving to Dropbox Passwords anytime soon and the competition has you beat there!

 

Hope this is something you consider for the future.

I have to use 1Password until Dropbox implements OTP in apps. That's the best feature 1Password has cause it's easy to fill out any OTP field.

 

Please consider add this feature ASAP!
