Use Dropbox?Â If so, then youâ€™ve probably heard by now of the recent security breach over at Dropbox central.
Scary, right? Given how Dropbox has become an indispensable tool nowadays, plus its new auto photo upload, I canâ€™t blame you if you cringe at the thought of someone hacking into your Dropbox account.
Thankfully, Dropbox isnâ€™t wasting any time in beefing up their security. Theyâ€™ve now made a two-step verification process available to all Dropbox who wish to make their accounts more secure. The two-step process is composed of logging-in to Dropbox the traditional way â€“ entering your username and password â€“ and using a password sent to your mobile phone.
Alternately, you can also use a mobile app, such as Google Authenticator (Android/iOS/BlackBerry), Amazon AWS MFA (Android), and Authenticator (Windows Phone), to generate a code for you. This is recommended if youâ€™re out of the country or constantly on the go, since this isnâ€™t dependent on cellular coverage.
Aching to give this a go?
Then log-in to your account, head on to Settings, then to Security, scroll down and click on Change beside the Disabled status of Two-step verification to be on your way to living the more secured Dropbox-drive life.
