Using Token2 programmable hardware tokens for Dropbox 2FADropbox is a cloud storage service that lets you save files online and sync them to your devices. You can use Dropbox links to share files and folders with other
people without sending large attachments. Dropbox has an option of enabling two-step verification. This feature is also supported on Free Plan too. It means that Dropbox will require a six-digit security code(in addition to your password) when you sign in to your account or link a new computer, phone, or tablet.
Requirements:• A Dropbox account
• A Token2 programmable token
• An iPhone or Android device with NFC* - this is needed for the enrollment only, subsequent logins will only require the hardware token
[* Android and Windows versions are available for all models, but this guide will use the iPhone app as an example. iPhone apps are compatible with "-i" models only]
