Dropbox's mission is to provide a home for everyone's most important information and bring it to life. We make it easy for hundreds of millions of people to access, share, and collaborate on their files so they can be more productive — at home and at work.

Dropbox is headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in Austin, New York, Seattle, Dublin (Ireland), Herzliya (Israel), London (United Kingdom), Sydney (Australia), and Tokyo (Japan).

Dropbox is the simple, powerful home for your photos, videos, docs, and other files. Your stuff is safe, accessible, and easily shared – no matter where you are. Any file you save to your Dropbox is automatically saved to all your computers, phones or tablets, and the Dropbox website. Plus Dropbox secures your files with AES-256 bit encryption and two-step verification.

Dropbox Pro provides unrivaled sync along with 1 TB of space, powerful sharing features, and increased control. Whether you’re a professor sending out lesson plans, a musician creating and sharing a new composition, or a consultant refining a proposal, Dropbox Pro is home for your passion and creativity.

Dropbox for Business combines the solution 300 million users trust to store, sync, and share files securely with the admin tools IT teams need to protect business data. With easy-to-use controls, IT admins can get full visibility over how critical work files are accessed and shared, while letting team members continue to use the tools they know and love.

Mailbox (acq. by Dropbox) is a simple, beautiful way to put email in its place. Users can swipe to archive, delete or snooze messages, making it easy to stay focused on what's important and reach inbox zero quickly.
