What is Dropbox Professional?

Updated Nov 28, 2023

Dropbox Professional is the most advanced of our three plans for individual users. Professional offers all of the great features of Dropbox Basic and Plus, including safeguards for lost or stolen devices.

It also offers some truly powerful features that aren't available on other individual plans, including:

Priority chat support

Dropbox Professional customers have access to priority chat support. This means that we can often reply to questions within a matter of minutes (during normal business hours).

File version history

With Dropbox Professional, we’ll store the version history of your files for 180 days. This means you can recover or restore a file anytime within 180 days of a change.

Learn more about file version history.

Shared link controls

Dropbox Professional customers have more control over what they share, and how:

  • Passwords for shared links—Create an additional layer of security so only people with a unique file password can access your link.
  • Expirations for shared links—Safeguard your sensitive files by setting an expiration date for shared links. When this expiration date passes, the shared link stops working.
  • View-only permissions—Choose whether recipients can edit or just view files in a shared folder.

Viewer history

With viewer history, Professional customers can see if someone they shared a file with is currently viewing it, or when they last viewed it.

Full text search

Full-text search allows you to search beyond the names of your files. It scans file names, extensions, and file contents, as well as Paper docs, to help you find what you’re looking for. Full-text search isn't case sensitive, and it includes personalized spell correction on your search queries.
