Last year, Dropbox launched a new passwords manager called Dropbox Passwords, which was available to use by anyone with a Plus, Family, or Professional Dropbox account. Now users relying of a free Dropbox Basic plan are set to gain access.

“We’re excited to help make the passwords experience easy for everyone, so starting in April, we’re rolling out Dropbox Passwords to all Dropbox users. Now, with a free Dropbox Basic plan, you can try a limited version of Passwords.” explained Dropbox. But what does a limited version actually mean?

Dropbox Basic users will be able to store up to 50 passwords in Dropbox Passwords and have them automatically sync with up to three devices. It will also be possible to share passwords securely with anyone eventually, but this is a feature Dropbox is still working on and isn’t available yet.

As with other password managers, Dropbox Passwords will autofill usernames and passwords for you across Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. Your passwords are kept safe using zero-knowledge encryption and benefit from the same cloud security as the rest of the files stored in your Dropbox account. If you already have a paid-for Dropbox account, simply sign-in and download the Dropbox Passwords app to start using it without limits. From next month, Dropbox Basic users can do the same, but must keep the limits detailed above in mind.
