DropItToMe Is Secure Way To Let People Upload Files To Your Dropbox

When we posted about Dropbox Uploader back in August, a lot of people got inspired and created their own version of the script by modifying the original and adding new functionalities. One of the most talked about functionalities was to add password protection and unique upload address for security and easier access.

After days of coding, reader Tomi tells us that he has created a new non-profit service called DROPitTOme which allows anyone to securely send files to your Dropbox account. This service is based on the script we posted back in August. Here is what he has to say:

I was so thrilled by your post "Allow Anyone To Upload Files To Your Dropbox Folder" that I created free service around that: http://www.dropitto.me/

To begin, you need to first allow DROPitTOme to connect with your Dropbox, and finally create an account by providing the username, password, and email. The username will be used as a unique address and the upload password will prevent hackers from uploading any virus.

You can visit my personal address here http://www.dropitto.me/nakodari to upload files but it is password protected. The maximum file size that can be uploaded is 75MB which is good enough.

Visit DROPitTOme

Excellent work Tomi!

    I’d be very cautious about supplying username/password to 3rd party website. Even if they are trustworthy that site is plain http and prone to lan sniffing.

    So is it true? Is this not safe to use?

      It is perfectly safe to use since it is based on the open source script we posted earlier. You don’t have to provide your Dropbox credentials to use it. Just give it permission, thats all!

    I’ve discovered your posts concerning non-users uploading to Dropbox. I’ve followed the thread of comments; alas I am no programmer nor am I comfortable with code. However, I really need the ability for my clients to upload to my Dropbox w/o requiring them to open an account. I noticed a WordPress plug-in that would enable me to include a form on my page for clients to upload – perfect! But it hasn’t been tested for my version of WordPress so I won’t take the risk to activate it. Any suggestions? Could you explain to me how I’d use this in a WordPress site – yes, you’ll need to use layman terms! Thank you!
