    • 4. What is Dropbox?
      • Dropbox is a web-based service that syncs files across multiple platforms, regardless of filetype. But you’re not limited to the web — there’s a desktop application for PC, Mac and Linux AND apps for iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and Android.
      • Dropbox allows you to save a file on your home computer, open it and edit it at work or school, and view it on your smartphone.
      • Dropbox also automatically creates backup versions of your files.
    • 5. File syncing
      • Edit and save a file on one device, and it automatically syncs to your other Dropbox-enabled devices.
    • 6. File sharing
      • Any file you save to the Public folder is assigned a public link you can share with others
        • Go to for an example
      • You can also invite specific people to share any other folder in your Dropbox folder
    • 7. Photo sharing
      • Move folders of images to your Photos folder to create galleries you can share easily with a public gallery link
        • Go to for an example
    • 8. Online backup
      • When you save a file to your Dropbox folder, it’s automatically backed up to Dropbox’s servers.
    • 9. Undo and undelete
      • Dropbox keeps a history of every change you make so that you can undo any mistakes and even undelete files.
      • Default history is 30 days, but they offer other packages.
    • 10. What it replaces FTP programs USB drives Google Docs External hard drives Emailing files to yourself Saving multiple versions
    • 11. Security and privacy
      • Uses the same secure methods as banks and the military to send and store data
      • Files are backed-up, stored securely, and password-protected.
      • Nobody can see private files in Dropbox unless they are invited, or they’re in the Public folder. (Everything in your Public folder is, by definition accessible to everyone.)
