Dropbox option enabled two-step verification to improve security
dropbox began testing a system of double checking accounts, to improve access security. In recent months we have seen cases of stolen passwords that have destroyed the lives of some online . Having data stored in the cloud is convenient, but if they have access to one of our accounts the danger is very high, especially considering that many people often use the same password for different services over the internet.
To prevent data from our Dropbox are violated by a malicious attacker, the company began to activate two-step verification, which will begin to appear during these days in the accounts of users. To function now need to download the latest beta of the desktop version and visit this link to activate the test. The double check can be done through text messages (which sent a Security code), or by an application authentication.
