With the continuous demand for more storage, cloud storage is increasingly becoming an important option for a number of people due to its flexibility. That idea of uploading data once and being able to access and sync from multiple devices is gradually catching on. DropBox, a cloud storage company founded in 2007, is one of the leaders in this space.

Dropbox boasts of more than 300 million users across consumers and small businesses.

The Service

For some who haven’t tried such technology, the idea of cloud may still be vague. So, what exactly does DropBox offer to consumers?

DropBox is your storage on the internet. You no-longer need to rely entirely on the built-in storage on your device, you can store some of them in the cloud. Upon signing up on its website, Dropbox gives you an instant 2GB storage for free. Anything you save on DropBox is accessible on any of your other devices. So, you can save a document using your laptop and access it on your mobile phone.

How to Access Dropbox

You can access Dropbox directly on your browser by visiting dropbox.com. You can also install the Dropbox application on your own desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. Users can save their files through it, and access the files on any device with an internet connection.

With this, you reduce your demand on your device’s built-in storage and almost eliminate the need to transfer files from one device to another. Cloud storage services such as DropBox has also become advantageous today with its ability to give access to files through mobile devices – something flash drives and hard drives are unable to access.

If the 2GB free storage is not enough for you, there are various ways you can increase your Cloud storage limit. Some of these ways include: referring friends to use Dropbox, linking social media sites to the account, and giving feedback on the app. Doing these will unlock more free storage for you to play with.

Dropbox also continues to add in more features. It also recently launched Carousel and Mailbox.

Carousel is Dropbox’s app to store and share photos and videos, while Mailbox is its app (for Android and iOS) to easily clean up your email. Users will also get free storage for using these apps.

If free storage is not enough for you, you can upgrade to Dropbox Pro, which offers 100GB, 200GB, and 500GB cloud storage starting at $9.99 per month. There is also a Dropbox for Business targeted at business users.
