Dropbox Security: How to Activate Two-Step Verification
April 1, 2015

Dropbox is a file hosting service with more than 300 million users all over the world. Simply put, it is one of the most well-known and widely used cloud storage services around. Available on all desktop and mobile platforms, Dropbox is also the cloud storage service of choice for thousands of business enterprises. However, there are several security concerns when it comes to using Dropbox and actually storing confidential files in their cloud storage servers.

In order to circumvent some amount of threat, we highly recommend that you set up two-step verification for your Dropbox account. This is an in-built security feature that goes a long way towards protecting your crucial information stored on Dropbox. With two-step verification activated, you will receive a 6-digit code on your registered mobile device via SMS, whenever you login to your Dropbox account, or when a new mobile device is added to your linked devices. This is a simple Dropbox security tip that all users must not overlook. For a detailed run through on how to activate two-step verification for your Dropbox account, please refer to the deck below.
