You would think that with all the new technology we have these days that we should be safer than ever from attacks. Sure, current security methods do a pretty good job at protecting us against more common forms of attacks, but it doesn’t mean that we should be lax when it comes to security.

If you’re a Dropbox user and you want to be in more control over your account’s security, you might be interested to learn that Dropbox has announced a new security checkup tool that helps to ensure that your account is up to date with the latest information, review third-party apps that you have previously granted permission to access your Dropbox account, review devices and browsers that are signed into your accounts, and more.

Given that sometimes we don’t give much thought when granting permission and signing into our Dropbox accounts, it’s nice to be able to once in a while checkup to see if there are any older devices and computers that are no longer in use that are still attached to your Dropbox account, and maybe remove their access/permission if needed, and this is pretty much what Dropbox is offering to its users.

If you’d like to check it out, then head on over to Dropbox’s website, sign into your account and you can start reviewing your account already.
