Dropbox Offers 1TB Pro Account for Just $10 Per Month
Dropbox is giving Pro users more storage for less money.
The cloud storage company on Wednesday announced it is consolidating its three Pro offerings into one new plan with 1TB of space for $10 a month. Previously, a $10 monthly Dropbox Pro subscription came with just 100GB of storage. Users had to pay $50 a month for 500GB, or half the amount you'll now get for $10.
"Whether you're a professor sending out your lesson plans, a musician creating and sharing your new composition, or a consultant writing and refining a proposal, Dropbox Pro provides a home for your passion and creativity," Dropbox said in a blog post Wednesday.
Current Dropbox Pro users will be upgraded to the new plan automatically in the next couple days, so there's no need to do anything. Those without an account can head to Dropbox's website to sign up. The company also still offers 2GB of space for free, and a $15 monthly Business plan with centralized admin controls.
In addition to the price cut, Dropbox is bringing some new sharing controls to Dropbox Pro. For added security, you can now set a password and expiration date for a shared links. The change comes after Dropbox in May disabled shared links to fix a bug that caused users to unwittingly leak their own personal files online. You can also now specify whether recipients can edit or just view the files in your shared folder.
There's also a new remote wipe feature that lets you easily delete Dropbox files from a lost or stolen device while keeping them safely backed up in the cloud.
