Dropbox users - all 200 million to date - will be happy to hear that Dropbox for Business accounts will now connect with personal accounts. This is great news for power Dropbox users, as they can now dabble with both personal and business accounts without having to sign in and sign out.
"People wanted to access their personal stuff at work; meanwhile, IT admins wanted to keep company data separate and free of personal files. Both needs were real, but people had to choose between two Dropboxes," the company writes on its official blog.
Dropbox CEO Drew Houston compares the new feature to having your house keys and your work keycard on the same keychain. Available only for Dropbox for Business users and on all devices, the feature will display both Dropbox folders on the same tab. It will also support single sign-on, two-step verification, and sharing controls.
In addition to this cool feature, Dropbox for Business now also supports sharing of audit logs, remote wiping, and account transferring. Houston says that it will roll out the said features this month.
