Dropbox Launches Invite-Only Password Manager

From PC Mag: Dropbox is best known as an online storage and file hosting company, but its latest venture switches the focus to security with a password manager that secures all online accounts.

As Android Police reports, a new app has appeared in Google Play called Dropbox Passwords. It's free to download, but is listed as "Invite Only (Early Access)," so it won't work unless Dropbox sends you an invite.

The main features of the app include offering "one secure place" for all your passwords and allowing one-click sign-in for any app or website. As you'd expect from Dropbox, stored passwords will be synchronized across all the devices you use, so you'll be able to quickly log in to any account from anywhere. Because of this feature, we have to assume Dropbox intends to bring this app to iOS, as well as Windows 10, macOS, and Linux.

The app blurb says, "Never get locked out of your accounts again. Using this new password keeper from Dropbox, you can sign in to your favorite banking, streaming, and e-commerce sites and apps—you can even shop and checkout securely." It also references using "zero-knowledge encryption," which means even though Dropbox is offering to store your passwords on its servers, it has no access to them and no idea what they are.
