Use biometrics to access files with new Dropbox app for Windows 10

January 24, 2016 - 

Dropbox has developed a new app specifically for Windows 10 devices that gives users secure biometric access to their files stored in Dropbox.

The new Dropbox app for Windows 10 lets users either use their fingerprint, face or iris to unlock the app and gain access to all of their files. Additional features include the ability to add comments directly to files and being able to quickly access recent files using Jump List.

Dropbox began allowing users to unlock their accounts using Apple’s Touch ID on an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus last October.

The app is available for download from the Windows Store.

In related news, in September of 2014, Dropbox recuited 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.
