Hosted Dropzone Setup

The Hosted Dropzone lets you set up a secure dropbox that can be shared across a team of users.  Each user account owns their own Hosted Dropzone, which can be accessed and configured using the following two steps:  

Step 1 - Enable your Public API Key

Go to the Edit Profile screen and check off the "Enable Public API Key" option. You will then see a long random string appear in the blue box, which is your Public API Key. This value is not secret, so don't worry about protecting it.

The URL for your Hosted Dropzone will be:


  • Replace "your-sendsafely-url" with the URL for your SendSafely enterprise portal
  • Replace "api-key" with your the public API key string

Step 2 - Configure Additional Recipients and File Expiration

By default, only you can access files uploaded to your Dropzone. If you want additional users to be able to access files uploaded through your Dropzone, you can add them using the "Add a Recipient" button underneath the public APIkey.

You can also control how long the files are retained before they are deleted (up to 100 days).
