Hello. Is there any way to create a secured folder within dropbox to use as a password manager? I don't trust any of these 3rd party apps. In fact, the only company I trust is Dropbox. With the security of my data and syncing of my data, Dropbox is a natural choice (for me) to turn to for an advanced password management solution (Aside from saving details and locking them up in a file somewhere).
Is there any way to create a secured folder within dropbox
Not using Dropbox, no. You might be able to using a third-party utility, but you seem to want to avoid that. There are also plenty of password manager apps that will sync with Dropbox. 1Password, for instance, is said to be pretty good. (and one of the moderators here is a mod over there as well. If he trusts it, you probably can as well.)
I can't offer an opinion on any password manager I'm afraid. I've tried a few, and while they all delivered on their promises, I just stopped using them. I just don't find them convenient. The only password manager I use now is the grey matter between my ears (what little there is of it).
a password protected Excel sheet. It's FREE, and it's as secure as my dropbox account
Send me your password protected Excel file and in a matter of minutes I'll show you how not secure that is by sending you all of your passwords. 🙂 Seriously though, while a password protected Excel file is better than a text file, it's only marginally better.
