Securing Dropbox  Business access

with cost-effective U2F

FIDO U2F security key with cap removed

Easy to deploy, simple to use, physical 2nd factor security

Key-ID FIDO U2F keys  work with Dropbox Business’s  two factor authentication log-on process, which is easy to activate within the Admin Console. Because the U2F standard is  supported natively by compatible web browses  there’s no other set-up  required. Users simply self-register, and  then use, a unique cryptographic USB  key to access their account  by tapping its button when prompted during log-in.

Easy to deploy

Provide each user with their own FIDO certified U2F key from Key-ID. No pre-registration or configuration of keys required.

Enable the ‘Require two-step verification’ option for your team in your Dropbox Business Admin console’s authentication settings. This can either be done for all team members, or on a user-by-user basis.

Team members will be required to set up two-step verification the very next time they sign-in to Dropbox, when they can self-register their keys.

That’s it! Stronger security, greater user convenience and easy deployment.

Dropbox Business team admins can reset a user’s two-step verification setting if they don’t have their key, or back-up alternatives, with them.


Simple to use

Users register the key on their Dropbox account page following the step-by-step instructions for ‘2-step verification’ set-up.

When signing-in to Dropbox users are prompted to insert their FIDO key into a USB slot and press the button. That’s it!

No drivers or software to install for FIDO U2F compatible browsers, including Chrome and Opera.

No manual typing of random codes or need for a mobile phone or SMS messaging.

The same key can also be used to secure account access to other FIDO complaint online services, such as Google’s G Suite and Attaching the U2F key to a keyring ensures it’s always on hand when needed.


Why 2 factor security?

Usernames and passwords just aren’t enough; known data breaches have impacted hundreds of millions of accounts while new phishing and man-in-the-middle threats are emerging all the time. FIDO U2F authentication provides far greater account protection by requiring the additional verification of a unique physical key that uses highly secure embedded public key cryptography, making them effective against ‘time-of-use‘ phishing attacks which can capture other 2-step authentication responses (including OTP codes).
