Family Plan, Dropbox Passwords, Plus a lot more

Community Manager

We know that working and keeping in touch is a little different at the moment, so we are excited to announce some amazing new features for Dropbox Plus users to help you stay organized and get more done, without adding any more stress. We are delighted to say that some of the ideas you, our Community members, have submitted have been made in to a reality. They are currently in Beta and will be included as part of the Dropbox Plus plans soon. We would love to hear what you think, so join the conversation below.

Dropbox Family

You asked for it, and it’s here! Dropbox Family is Dropbox Plus, but for your whole family. 
Everyone who is connected to the family account will have all the features of Dropbox Plus on their own accounts, but it will all be organized on one bill. Now you can store those secret family recipes and group photos in one place, with 2TB of shared storage and it’s all on one bill, to keep it simple. When you share with members on your plan, it only counts towards your plan storage once, not for each time a document is shared. Now you can create a shared family space to share those important family docs with peace of mind. Your plan can include up to 6 members, whether they are in your household or living elsewhere, like college students or grandparents.  
We're currently beta testing the Dropbox Family product with select Dropbox users and plan to roll it out more broadly throughout the year, so keep your eyes peeled.

Store and sync passwords across all devices with Dropbox Passwords

How many of us are guilty of reusing or remixing passwords and still forgetting them all? One of the biggest interruptions to our lives can be forgetting passwords, whether it’s paying a bill online, managing your kids schoolwork or just streaming to relax. 
Don’t worry, the new Passwords app saves your passwords in one safe place and autofills them so you can instantly sign in to websites and apps. You can sign in anywhere on Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android devices. Passwords secures your credentials with zero-knowledge encryption, so your passwords are protected and only accessible by you. This is currently in Beta and will be released to a wider audience soon.
