Dropbox Cloud based secure storage

Organize and share files

Synchronized across devices

Security - Dropbox files at rest are encrypted using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).Dropbox uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)/Transport Layer Security (TLS) to protect data in transit between Dropbox apps and our servers; it's designed to create a secure tunnel protected by 128-bit or higher Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption.Dropbox applications and infrastructure are regularly tested for security vulnerabilities and hardened to enhance security and protect against attacks.Two-step verification is available for an extra layer of security at login. You can choose to receive security codes by text message or via any Time-Based One-Time Password (TOTP) apps, such as those listed here.Public files are only viewable by people who have a link to the file(s).
