Dropbox said today that it now has more than 400 million registered users — a jump from the last public figure about its user base in May last year.
Previously, the company had said it had 300 million users. The company declined to say how many of them are monthly active users, but it still shows that Dropbox’s registered user base at the very least continues to grow. Dropbox’s edge is that it’s a dead-simple file-sharing service, but even something that might sound as boring as that is able to attract a huge audience. Dropbox also has more than 100,000 paying business customers, the company said.
