What is Dropbox?

Dropbox is a safe, cloud-based file storage service that allows you to save and access your files from anywhere, on any device. It’s a collaborative workspace for distant teams where you can organize and access content in one place.


The History of Dropbox

Drew Houston, a University student, came up with the idea for Dropbox as he kept losing his USB memory stick. He created the answer for himself at first, but quickly realized that it may be useful to others. Dropbox was co-founded by him and fellow student Arash Ferdowsi as a start-up in 2007, and the service was publicly launched for the public the following year.



Work from anywhere

Access your files from your PC, phone, or tablet to keep projects going.


Protect your work

Large files, such as video, graphics, and audio, can be easily transferred.


Collaborate with ease

Data security
