Dropbox Adds New Safety Features Like Two-Step Authentication

Posted Aug 3, 2012

After Dropbox was hit with a security breach, the company decided to increase some of their precautions.  The security breach was caused by passwords stolen from other websites and it affected a small number of accounts.  One of the accounts that was accessed was an employee’s, which contained a document with the e-mail addresses of many users.  Some of the precautions Dropbox is adding include two-factor authentication, automated mechanisms to notify the company when there is suspicious activity, and a new page that shows you your login history.
