I use Dropbox to manage all of my files and documents across my devices seamlessly. The file storage app has a lot of user-friendly features including the option to add extra security by adding a four-digit passcode. Setting a passcode for Dropbox on iPhone and Android is pretty easy with quick steps.
If you use Dropbox too and you wish to add an additional shield to your important files, you need to use the lock to prevent unauthorized access to the files. Read on to learn how its done the right way.

- Open the Dropbox app on your iPhone or iPad.
- Next, you need to tap on the Account tab at the bottom right corner of the screen.
- Now, tap on the Settings icon at the top left corner of the screen. If you use an Android device, tap on the menu button at the top left corner of the screen and then tap on Settings.
- Next up, you need to tap on Passcode. On Android, tap on "Configure Passcode."
- Now, tap on Turn Passcode On.
- Next up, type in a four-digit passcode and then enter it again to confirm.
