Add to Dropbox Passwords: 1) filling credit cards 2) secure notes

Add to Dropbox Passwords: 1) filling credit cards 2) secure notes

I've been using 1Password and am trying out Dropbox Passwords for the first time. There are 2 features 1Password has that I use frequently and would like to have added to Dropbox Passwords:

 

  1. Filling credit cards - I use this feature in 1Password often for placing online orders. I'd like to see this in Dropbox Passwords as an auto-fill feature. I understand I can add my credit card info to a note on the credit card's login entry, but that doesn't allow auto-fill.
  2. Secure notes - The other feature I use in 1Password is Secure Notes for storing info I frequently need that I'd like to store and access securely. Examples: driver's license number, passport number, employer ID. These don't have corresponding sites I would store logins to, so adding them as notes in a login record doesn't make sense.

Thanks for considering these additions!

Hi, It will be more useful If you add other features not only site passwords!
Like the below features;

  • Payments issues, Like bank details, and cards, etc..
  • Important papers, Like ID card, passport, Driver's license.
  • Secure notes located with a password.
  • Password health (if my password weak, strong, or repeated).
  • Sharing password.


this will be so helpful, so please keep in mind my suggestions!

regards.

HI,

 

IT'S MY FIRST POST HERE SO I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY HOW THIS COMMUNITY WORKS...

MY INTENT IS TO SUGGEST FURTHER DEVELOPMENT FOR DROPBOX PASSWORDS.

 

I AM A LONG TIME USER OF DROPBOX, AND PRETTY HAPPY ABOUT IT.

BUT ALWAYS BEEN SUPRISED THAT NO ONE AT DROPBOX THOUGHT ABOUT DEVELOPING AN APP TO STORE LOGIN DATA AND PASSWORDS, SO WHEN I FINALLY SAW DROPBOX PASSWORDS RELEASED I WAS ENTHUSIAST:champagne:

 

WELL, ENTHUSIASM DID NOT LAST LONG, AND ONCE DOWNLOADED DISAPPOINTMENT REPLACED ENTHUSIASM :slight_frown:

 

THE IPHONE DROPBOX APP IS SHOCKINGLY BASIC!!!

NOW THIS IS THE THING: THE FIRST APP THAT YEARS AGO CONVINCED ME TO USE AN IPHONE WAS A PASSWORD MANAGER CALLED iAccounts. AT THAT TIME I WAS A NOKIA KEEN USER ( YEAH, I KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE PREHISOTRIC AGE BUT BELIEVE ME IT'S NOT MANY YEARS AGO...) AND MY EVERYDAY LIFE WAS ALREADY FULL OF USERNAMES AND PASSWORDS TO BE MANAGED DAILY, AND MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY.

 

WHEN I SAW HOW iAccounts WORKED ON AN IPHONE I WAS HOOKED AND PURCHASED AN IPHONE 3G ONLY BECAUSE OF IT. OVER THE YEARS THE APP WENT THRU NOT SO MANY UPDATES AND MAINTAINED ITS SIMPLE YET EFFICIENT DESIGN, RELIABILITY AND INCREDIBLE POWER OF PERSONALISATION.

 

UNFORTUNATELY THE COMPANY THAT DEVELOPED THE APP DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE, SO THE APP IS NOT AVAILABLE ON THE APP STORE ANYMORE, AND JUST WHEN I WAS GETTING WORRIED ON HOW TO REPLACE IT, DROPBOX CAME OUT WITH ITS NEW APP.

 

BUT, AND THIS IS A BIG BUT , THE DBX PASSWORDS APP IS NOWHERE NEAR TO IACCOUNTS, AND TO THE OTHER MOST POPULAR PASSWORDS MANAGERS LIKE 1PASSWORD OR KEEPER OR SECURESAFE. 

A PASSWORD MANAGER CANNOT JUST ALLOW TO SAVE USERNAME AND PASSWORDS BECAUSE THERE IS A MULTITUDE OF OTHER KEYWORDS, CODES, DATES, RECOVERY PASSWORDS AND SO ON THAT MUST BE SAVED TO ACCESS MODERN LIFE'S DIGITAL SERVICES.

 

SO MY SUGGESTION IS:

THE NOTES FIELD SHOULD BE HIGHLY DEVELOPED AND REARRANGED SO THAT THE USER CAN ADD AS MANY FIELDS AS NEEDED AND ADD AS MANY CODES, DATES, DATA, PASSWORDS AS NECESSARY. 

JUST TO GIVE AN EXAMPLE, MY AMERICAN EXPRESS PAGE ON IACCOUNTS, WHICH IS STILL MY CURRENT PASSWORD MANAGER, IS MADE OF 13 LINES, TWO OF THEM IS USNM AND PSWD TO ACCESS THE AMEX WEBSITE, THE REST IS CREDIT CARD DATA. SO BASICALLY IN ONE SINGLE PAGE I HAVE ALL I NEED TO INTERACT WITH AMERICANEXPRESS AND USE MY CREDIT CARD.

 

HOPEFULLY FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS ARE IN THE PIPELINE OF DROPBOX PASSWORDS, THIS APP COULD BE A TREMENDOUS HELP TO SIMPLIFY LIFE, BUT RIGHT NOW IT'S NOT A USEFUL TOOL AND WAY TOO FAR FROM THE COMPETITORS OFFER.

+ add Brave browser integration (does not work currently when downloaded from Chrome webstore)

+ add a way to store information that is not a log in (like bank accounts, documents, passwords without email addresses associated, etc) 

+ add a keyboard shortcut to autofill passwords 

+ improve the auto-add function on mobile and desktop when new passwords are entered

Agree. I've also been using 1Password which is a great keeper of passwords. However, I cannot as yet shift entirely to Dropbox Password because it lacks most of the convenience that 1Password has been providing, like keeper of credit card details, personal identification details, bank accounts, insurance etc. It also has the capability of storing old passwords and the time it has come into disuse, which is critical when the website/account does not accept the new password that has been suggested and asks for the old password again.

As the title says, the current implementation of dropbox passwords is fine, but it can't compare to dedicated password managers without the ability to store payment information.
