Dropbox, a company we know for being a cloud storage service provider has
quietly launched a private beta of its password manager app on the Google Play
Store. The app dubbed, Dropbox Passwords, is a password manager that is
currently in an invite-only private beta for existing Dropbox customers.

[https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/06/04/dropbox-is-working-on-its-own-password-manager/] , screenshots of the app reveal that the app looks similar to any other popular
password manager likeLastPass,Dashlaneor1Password, with a more clutter-free
approach. It will securely store all your passwords and sync them across all
your devices. It also has ?zero-knowledge encryption? which basically means that
only the user has access to their passwords. This feature is also found in other
password managers so it is not exactly new.

Android which means that you can enter your login credentials in an app or
website in just one click.
Dropbox Passwords can be downloaded from the Play Store but it is in private
beta and you cannot use it if you have not received the invite. For a password
manager to be successful, it is important that it is available across all major
platforms. So, it is likely that Dropbox is also working on an iOS app and a
browser extension of its password manager service although there?s not been any
evidence to suggest that those two are out there.
Dropbox is yet to make a formal announcement about its password manager app for
now. It is interesting to see the company jump into the crowded password manager
game as there are plenty of other great password managers out there likeLastPass
,1Password,BitWarden, and more.
