Dropbox’s leverages Windows Hello to protect your files on Windows 10 Mobiles

Dropbox Universal App

Dropbox has launched its Universal Windows 10 app along with Windows Hello Support that enables users to sign in to their Dropbox accounts by using their fingerprint, face or iris. Several other exciting features that were not possible for Windows Store Apps in Windows 8 were also introduced in the new app.

Some interesting features include dragging and dropping files from Windows File Explorer to Dropbox and utilizing Quick Search to access recent files.

In addition to these, the app features interactive device notifications that allow users to accept shared folder invitations without opening the application.

With Windows Hello Feature, the time taken to type a difficult password on the screen has definitely reduced. The app also comes with a comment support feature which allows users to comment on files and call their friends for discussions using @mentions.

Dropbox App uses resources from the Universal Windows Platform and delivers a unified experience on notebooks, desktops as well as touch-screen enabled tablets and smartphones.

The app claims to offer its users with several performance improvements as well as faster launching so that access to Cloud Storage can be enhanced.

Commenting on this launch, Chief Evangelist and Corporate Vice President of Microsoft, Steve Guggenheimer stated that by partnering with Dropbox, they were able to help 17 million people to get more work done on the go.

He further added that since Windows 10 runs on more than 200 million devices globally, they are excited to offer convenient and easy access, files, documents and photos to their fans anywhere and anytime.
