HelloSign becomes the default e-signature service of Dropbox. In addition to the integration with HelloSign, Dropbox also introduces other new features to make work within the platform easier.

With the integration with HelloSign, users can now more easily send, sign and save agreements without leaving Dropbox. The new functionality will be rolled out to private beta users in the coming weeks and will be released to the general public next month. Dropbox acquired HelloSign at the beginning of 2019 for 230 million dollars (205 million euro).

App Center

In addition to the integration with HelloSign, Dropbox also added a new App Center for business customers. App Center serves as a hub for finding tools from Dropbox partners such as Zoom, Slack and Google. The new hub will initially only be available to a few beta users. By the time this service is officially added to Dropbox, App Center will have tools from more than 40 partners at its disposal.

Dropbox also introduces new Dropbox Plus features, including Dropbox passwords. This feature allows customers to store and synchronise passwords between different devices with zero-knowledge encryption. This feature is made possible through the acquisition of Valt, a company specialised in password management.

Dropbox Vault

Another new feature called Dropbox Vault allows consumers to securely store important documents, such as a testament, to ensure that only a select number of friends or family members have access to these documents when needed. Dropbox Vault contains extensive security including a 6-digit PIN code.

Dropbox also introduces the Dropbox Family Plan for up to six members. Each family member has their own account, and family members can share files such as photos or documents in a shared folder.
