Dropbox is a cloud service which can be used to upload files, photos and all the required data that can be accessed anywhere from any device and at any time. This is the shared location which can be accessed by everyone through their individual accounts. We may receive some important files as attachments through emails and we want to upload them to our Dropbox account, so that we never lose them. But, we need to download the file first, login to our Dropbox account and then we need to upload it to the cloud.
But, have you ever thought of any security concern? Suppose, you were in a place where you are not confident about the security of the downloaded data, then it would be risk to download file and then uploading to cloud. So, no need to worry from now, if you come across this situation. Now, you can send files directly from an Email to your Dropbox account using “Send to Dropbox” plug-in. This is free service and also easy to use.
