Dropbox is an online cloud storage site. It is true to its name and description and as far as I have both experienced and read about is reliable. No know security issues and no malicious content.
You can sign up and download the app and begin storing a certain amount of data for free on an offsite storage cloud.
Dropbox is a cloud storage application where you can store 2GB of files for free. I am a little dissapointed that you only get 2GB, but the nice thing is that it makes a folder in your file manager where you can automatically upload files that can be accessed on multiple computers.
Store, synchronize and share files online with public access. Free version offers up to 16 GB. Provides a desktop client for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and has apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry.

The Biggest issue with Dropbox
=>A rogue Dropbox employee who decides he wants your data
Of minimal concern since very few employees typically have the access rights. But still, you should be aware that it’s possible for others to see your data.
=>Hackers getting their hands on your encryption key
Since Dropbox stores the keys for all its users, it’s possible that a database breech could result in everyone’s encryption keys being stolen. Not likely since they’re probably stored far away from your actual data. But worth the mention nonetheless.
=>Dropbox voluntarily disclosing your information to a third party This is the real concern. The question is whether companies like Dropbox should have the right to give away your data.
Be careful with what you store on Dropbox, they have NSA-loving Connie Rize on their board. Be mindful of pictures, documents and such and consider either getting a more encrypted and secure cloud solution or storing your valuable information in your own physical storage off-site from your home.
