Dropbox Passwords manager from the Dropbox Team


Dropbox has come up with a password manager and clearly not a big chunk of the budget has gone into finding a name for it – it’s called Dropbox Passwords. The app is now available on the Play Store, though it’s listed as Early Access and while you can freely download it, actually using it requires an invite.

Dropbox Passwords is a password manager from Dropbox

The description in the Play Store makes it sound like every other password manager – it’ll remember your passwords, sign you in to websites, and feature cross-device syncing. Your passwords will be protected by zero-knowledge encryption too, meaning Passwords itself will store them without really knowing them, which should be a plus if it ever gets hacked.

The welcome screens in the app state that Dropbox Plus or Professional are required in order to use Passwords and those start at €10 where we are. An extra password manager is a nice bonus if you’re already a paying Dropbox user, but perhaps converting just for Passwords isn’t really on the table with free alternatives available for those who don’t use that particular cloud storage service.

There’s no word yet on when the app will become publicly available.
