File Sharing in Dropbox. Sharing files in Dropbox is very easy. Most of the Dropbox’s sharing features are available within the file or folder sharing interface. The above image shows standard file-sharing options in Dropbox. As evident from the image, a file or folder can be shared with an individual or a group. Dropbox is a secure cloud solutions leader trusted by Fortune 500. Let Dropbox be your all-in-one file storage, file organizer, file transfer, and file.


You can also take advantage of two-step verification, a login authentication feature which you can enable to add another layer of security to your account.

Other Dropbox users can't see your files in Dropbox unless you share links to files or share folders. Like most online services, we have a small number of employees who must be able to access user data for the reasons stated in our privacy policy (e.g., when legally required to do so). But that's the rare exception, not the rule. We have strict policy and technical access controls that prohibit employee access except in these rare circumstances. In addition, we employ a number of physical and logical security measures to protect user information from unauthorized access.
