Request for DropBox on lab PCs at SFU Library

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. Can we have a DropBox app installed on PCs or Macs at the library? It is just more convenient to work in the app rather than download and re-upload files every time. Thanks!

A. I raised your question with computing services, who have ultimate authority over what appears on our lab PCs.

Unfortunately the feeling is that installing DropBox would suggest SFU is implicitly endorsing a service that enable students to store what could be considered private data on servers outside of Canada, potentially violating FIPPA legislation.
