Dropbox Passwords is a password manager that syncs across your devices. It lets you seamlessly sign in to websites and apps by storing your passwords securely. The app remembers your usernames and passwords on all your devices so you don’t have to.

Dropbox Passwords provides enhanced security by allowing you to:
  • Create secure, strong passwords that sync across your devices
  • Lock the Passwords app automatically after inactivity or whenever your device is locked
  • Unlock the Passwords app with Face ID or Touch ID on your iOS devices or fingerprint scanner on your Android devices
You can also protect your entire Dropbox account (including Passwords) with two-factor authentication. Additionally, zero-knowledge encryption means that only you can access your passwords. You can learn more about this here.

What about unique passwords? 


We all know we’re supposed to have unique passwords but, let’s be honest, no one has that kind of creativity and memory, so if you don’t have unique passwords for each and every service. Don’t worry, Dropbox Passwords can create and store unique passwords as you sign up for new online accounts. You can update existing passwords to be unique, and easily update or reset passwords whenever you need to.

Unlimited passwords for everyone


Now Dropbox Basic users can securely store and sync unlimited passwords and payment cards across three devices. Now you can autofill passwords, credit cards, and debit cards from your web browsers and mobile apps with Dropbox Passwords.

I need a way to stop this lousy app.  It does not work for business passwords, and has wasted MUCH of my time since installation.

HOW CAN I TURN THIS APPLICATION OFF?????????????????????????????????????????????


i HATE IT.  Please advise.  Otherwise I am simply DONE with Dropbox altogether.

Hey @rtaylor3, sorry to hear you're having issues with this.

Could you please clarify if you're referring to the browser extension for Dropbox Passwords or the mobile app?

Also, can you share some additional information about the issue you're facing with storing your business passwords?

Let me know and we'll take it from there.
