Annoying nags and disregard for users

about Dropbox · ·

When you're close to the storage limit on a free plan (which if you've been using Dropbox for a long time is usually fairly generous), you get a daily nag to subscribe to a paid plan.

Other users have pointed out the many privacy issues with Dropbox, but what finally drove me to switch was their casual disregard for macOS users when they decided to hack our computer's security to display their badge on top of other apps.

a very safe and secure storage place. has got many new updates. upgrading to the higher versions gives many more features- camera uploads, passcodes and lot more. very helpful.

a very safe and secure storage place.

No it's not. They don't implement end-to-end encryption so your data can be accessed by them and anyone who hacks their servers (has happened). They have also been a target by intelligence agencies wanting to snoop on people's data. For more info, see here:

... or read my review under the Reviews tab, here on alternativeto.net. There are many better Dropbox alternatives.

Keep Your Eyes Open

I've got to say that while I use both Dropbox and Google Drive; I prefer Dropbox in the area that through various promotions they've upgraded my storage space to an insane amount. While in my eyes Google Drive works better, and interfaces well Gmail and other Google apps, my storage space in Google Drive is a mere 10% of what I get in Dropbox and with Dropbox I got some storage space for free, and other increases with incredibly low prices.

So if you're considering the two, that may be worth looking into.


like it but..

Drop box is a great service but the space should be increased for free accounts.


Great program, lacks space

about Dropbox · · 1 Helpful

I consider myself to be a Dropbox fan. As an early adopter of the program, I found it extremely handy for handling large documents without having to take around my computer, and later on, to see in tablets and phones. Syncing is great and sharing is fast. However, I do feel that they need to extend their space. 2 GB free is too small and fills up quickly. Having to refer others to gain more space from the minuscule already given is a hassle.


Works great

Keeps all of my files in sync between my desktop, laptop, tablet, phone, and ipad.


Great Cloud Storage & File sync

about Dropbox and Google Drive · ·

I like Google Drive more when it comes down to work collaboratively on documents.

But as most of my daily business is about sharing, syncing and backing up files Dropbox is my first choise. It smoothly integrates with your personal file system so that you do not need to worry about anything. Only speed of syncing is sometimes a bit slow...

There are better alternatives in terms of functionality and free space.

2GB is pathetic for free storage.

agree - still prefer Google Drive
