Add One Time Passwords (OTP) to Dropbox Password Manager

Add One Time Passwords (OTP) to Dropbox Password Manager

New member | Level 2

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.

I've actually never heard of OTP's, but they sound indeed more safe and I would feel much more secure while surfing in the internet. Let's hope that the feature will be added to the Dropbox Password Manager.

I agree, once Dropbox adds OTPs to Dropbox Passwords I can switch from 1Password. Until then I will not be able to.

Same here. It seems we all want to be able to shift to Dropbox Password from 1Password.
