Dropbox Rolls Out Two-Step Verification; Use ItMost security-minded computer users know about Google’s two-step verification process, but now other popular webapps like Facebook, Amazon, and today Dropbox have also added this great way of reducing your chances of being hacked.

To enable Dropbox two-step authentication you’ll need to allow Dropbox to send you a text message with a code or use a mobile authenticator app if you don’t want Dropbox to have your phone number. Either way works fine and enables the “something you have” plus “something you know” steps to help keep you safe.

To get started go to your account settings page on Dropbox, click on the Security tab, and scroll down to the bottom of the page and enable two-step verification. Or just click this link.
