3rd party apps or locked vaults you can store inside dropbox.

New member | Level 2

I just spoke to Dropbox and they do not have any way to actually lock the application on your computer. They went through the obvious of security check ups, two factor authentication etc. I am looking for a way to individually lock dropbox on my computer to store sensitive files for work. 

 

 

When I asked if there was any kind of 3rd party app that could be locked like a vault or encrypted and then stored within dropbox.. I was told they can't officially recommomend anything but to ask around in the forum. Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations if something like that exists? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
