So, you finally heard about Dropbox and now you want to know how you can sign up for it right? Well, this is not such a complicated issue but if you are not sure how the sign up process works, I will guide you from start to beginning. I have prepared a simple and easy to follow tutorials for all those are looking to sign up for Dropbox but are not sure what they are required to do. Well, if you will search on the internet, you will find a lot of information on this topic but still, you are at the right place at the moment. Before we go ahead and sign up for Dropbox, let us discuss some of the core features that this company is offering and why is it really essential for everyone to sign up for their service?
Free Cloud Storage
The biggest reason that forced me to sign up for Dropbox around 3 years ago and still keep using their services is the free 2GB cloud storage space that they are offering. Once you will sign up, they will give you a 2GB storage space for free. This is really great for those who just want to test the services and make sure before paying anything for cloud storage. If you have higher needs then you can go for paid services in which you can get up to 500 GB of cloud storage facility in just $9.99/ month. If you are a domestic user then 2GB of free space is enough for you, what do you think?
This is one of the greatest things that I love about Dropbox. Not only you can sign up for their services for free but you can also download and install their desktop application for free as well. There are no extra charges and you can do so many things with that application. For example; you can upload a file directly from your desktop to the cloud storage, isn’t it cool? You can install that desktop application on your computer and also on any other device like your smartphone or tablet etc. Any file that you will save in your Dropbox account will be directly synchronized with all the devices that are using the desktop application associated with your account. This is really an awesome tool by Dropbox and I love them for this.
File sharing made easy
It becomes really easy to share your files with friends. Just upload a file in your Dropbox folder and from their website, get a downloadable link for that file. You can share that link with anyone and they can download that file even if they don’t have an account at Dropbox.
Finally, let us discuss how to sign up for Dropbox account.
