October 25, 2014 - 

Dropbox has added new functionality for all members using the cloud storage service on an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, allowing them to unlock their accounts using Apple’s Touch ID unlocking feature, according to a report by CNET News.

Released on Monday, Dropbox’s updated iOS app has been optimized for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which includes the Touch ID unlocking feature.

As a result, all iOS 8 device users can “use [their] fingerprint to unlock Dropbox with TouchID support,” Dropbox wrote in the change log for its latest iOS update.

Previously reported, Dropbox acquired Columbia University’s professor Peter Belhumeur and UCSD’s professor David Kriegman, the computer vision and machine learning professors who founded Kriegman-Belhumeur Vision Technology.
