Dropbox appears to be working on its own password manager, dropping an early access, invite-only version on the Google Play Store.
Password managers are increasingly becoming an important part of internet users’ routines. As more and more websites insist on complicated passwords, many users are finding it difficult to keep up with them. In addition, several modern web browsers will recommend a password change if it’s too easy, or if it’s being used on multiple sites.
A password manager solves the problem of trying to remember a myriad of unique passwords, as it stores all the passwords securely in one location. As a result, a user only has to remember the password to the manager, and let it handle everything else.
It seems Dropbox wants in on the game, as it has released Dropbox Passwords on the Google Play Store. The app is still in development, however, and is accessible by invite only.
Given Dropbox’s status as one of the most popular cloud services, it’s a safe bet Dropbox Password will be a big hit once it is officially released.
