Of course I see the possibility of harm here, but really, isn't automatic updates pretty standard by now? I Dropbox mac not auto updating, isn't that the more severe security issue at hand? And if you're conscious enough about your digital security that you really do mind Dropbox updating itself automatically, why did you install their app in the first place?

From what I hear, Apple's attempts at creating similar safeguards in macOS with the Mac AppStore has not been received that well with developers because of the restrictions sandboxing place on the apps. Sample of one, obviously, but I certainly Dropbox mac not auto updating know I Naked girls cle elum in Siem Reap, and yet never got any kind of notification to that effect until I sought to delete the app a few weeks ago.

It's so matter of factly on consumer devices that things just update themselves or nag you to do it from time to time, that it somewhat boggles the mind that it wasn't automated. Because I hate it when features are irreversibly changed, at random. Which is what happens with "evergreen" software. I don't care if it only happens occasionally. Never is better than occasionally. I want the peace of mind to know that if Dropbox mac not auto updating stops working, that it's not because of an update.

If you're going to introduce feature regressions, you'd better at least make it easy to undo them. If you're going to make users update on your schedule, you'd better be really really good at making your updates smooth.

Google can almost get away with this, but Dropbox, OneNote, Skype, and especially Firefox have introduced major bugs without telling me. Firefox is the worst offender, because even if you Dropbox mac not auto updating disable automatic updates, it will just repeatedly download updater. I discovered this when I had to fix something on a 3G cellular connection on a strict deadline.

Another morning, I woke up to find a bell icon added[1] next Dropbox mac not auto updating my clock, with no Sexy women in Bangladesh way to remove it.

It brought me back to the bad old days of Windows 98 where Dropbox mac not auto updating by installers would just add stuff to your computer. The thing I object to the most, is for software you already have installed to have features removed Dropbox mac not auto updating replaced with a nag to buy back the features you just had before the update.

LogMeIn's Hamachi app did that, but thankfully I keep backups. Or, a classic example from a long time ago, was iTunes 4. Are you really OK with software like the deceptively named "keystone agent" running as root, that can add and Dropbox mac not auto updating data anywhere on your filesystem? Google Drive and Google Earth will try to reinstall it if you remove it, and nag you with deceptive messages about how they need you to authorize superuser access for them so that they can run properly, when in reality they are just adding the updater daemon, which they do not require to function.

After having been burnt by new bugs, and outright dishonesty, I'm very careful now. Gaelan on Mar 24, I'm all for calling out Dropbox or anyone else when Dropbox mac not auto updating actually do something wrong, but this is getting ridiculous.

I think the concern might be that we are more and more granting ownership of our machines: If NSA wants to install a spyware on targetted systems, they have a dozen autoupdate channels to do it through now. Which is good because we do nothing wrong. Apart from Youporn, where only one underage model that you didn't know Dropbox mac not auto updating could lead you to jail.

You know, accusations do wonders for your career. Apart from this catastrophic scenario, I don't either see what's wrong. And to people who think this won't affect them, it doesn't even have to be cp charges. NSA has lost the fight to keep its uncensored dragnet data to itself. Today, it is FBI who has access to it. Tomorrow, it will be the IRS which is fine. However, the real kicker will come when state departments of revenue and city police get their hands on it.

Remember, we as a people, legitimately break the law millions of times every day. It doesn't have to be cooked up evidence. If someone wants to hang any of us "upstanding" citizens, they just have to look hard enough.

JustSomeNobody on Nude black Antigua And Barbuda chicks 24, How long until we are issued tickets for speeding when we say simple things like, "I was hauling butt to get to work today! Or have our insurance premiums jump because of it. Certainly the former wouldn't hold up with current laws, but how long until the laws are changed? The more we allow our privacy to be eroded, the closer we are to having this come true.

However, these vendors have Dropbox mac not auto updating asleep at the wheel and are allowing basic system services to be fractured at the base i. I mean, honestly, if folks would just have a way to create their own VPN's out of the box, share the details, and set up a peer network as if it were.

Huh, not an unreasonable argument. Dropbox seems to be singled out for doing things like this, Dropbox mac not auto updating browsers, Win10, etc. The updater changes nothing unless someone has done a full audit of the Dropbox binary. Dropbox mac not auto updating you have any executables incl. If you don't trust Dropbox, an updater is the least of your concerns. Given the amount of vulnerabilities in commonly used applications, they would not need the auto update to infect your computer with malware.

Just modify some existing document stored in your computer and wait for you to open it. And to do that, there's no need to work with Dropbox. Eve could just work her way through your colleagues you are sharing files with to find the weakest link, plant the documents on his computer and wait for them to automatically sync to yours. This is NOT about keeping everyone updated and reducing the pool of older clients. This can be done by simply denying service to outdated versions.

It worked very well for AOL Messenger 20 years ago, no reason why it won't work just as well today. This is strictly about being able to install anything on users' machines at will and having a formal consent to do that. You are losing control over what exactly and when you allow to run on your machine. For the majority of typical users of Dropbox and HN certainly doesn't count as typicalthis is a net win in every way.

They get the latest bugfixes, and they don't need to worry about all this downloading installers rubbish that seems so last decade. Also - if you were deathly worried about Dropbox and what they could do Private fucking in Faro firstly, why would you install their client to begin with, considering it's entirely closed-source?

Secondly, why would you use a cloud storage provider like them to begin with? You talk about "losing control" - why not spin your own Dropbox? I suspect many people, nerds included, underestimate the sheer amount of engineering and technical man years that go into something like this. However, for the Stallman's among it, it may make sense. They could also distribute Dropbox through the Mac App Store, then they wouldn't have to sneak in SUID binaries and run background processes with launchd.

As an added bonus, Dropbox would be sandboxed. Before someone says it can't be done: Yes, the Office badge would probably be a problem, but that is a hack now anyway. I Dropbox mac not auto updating that this benefits a lot of users, Dropbox mac not auto updating just wanted to point out that an App Store version would be even better. It's an urban legend. For every support request that cannot be answered from a stock pile of answers, the first reply is "update to the latest version and then come back.

Not a single complaint. Those who can upgrade will upgrade when asked. That depends on the industry. I have worked with support for about as long as you, and many clients wants to find a solution that they can use until they upgrade since the upgrade process can take quite some time if you have lots of dependent software that needs validating. Sure, there are clients like Getting laid in Azua and those who can't upgrade due to internal policies, QA restrictions, etc.

Point being is Dropbox mac not auto updating the extra load from having to deal with clients on outdated versions is insubstantial and it certainly does not justify force-shoveling updates down everyone's throats. But your line of argument is flawed. Well, if you haven't done some form of studying, formal or informal, you can't really claim to be informed. I can't count how many times Windows broke because of auto updates. I would so much rather have a notification than just to have something update in the background and break.

Nothing ever breaks at a convenient time. I'm sure my Dropbox has been updating itself already for years. I wonder how they did the auto-update that brought that feature to me I have a pretty shitty internet connection here and i recognized the dropbox updater sucking up my bandwidth yesterday I've not triggered any manual update Thought this too as soon as the notification popped up.

To the best of my knowledge I haven't updated recently, so they've basically had an auto-update feature sitting dormant for a while. They've had an auto-updater for many years. They've now separated it into a separate process, so the Dropbox sync daemon doesn't have to have privileges to self-modify. When exactly did HN transition from from fawning over one of the best YC success stories to being upset with nearly everything Dropbox does?

The number of extremely negative comments here here about using a second process [just like Chrome, Creative Cloud and countless others] to auto-update is really surprising. I can understand people not being thrilled with a kernel extension being installed, but most of those comments there seem misguided or uninformed. The obvious transition point [to me, it seems] was when they put Condi on the board. HN opinion on nearly everything Dropbox does has really soured since then.


Dec 23, Dropbox hasn't "hacked" anything. A program self updating, even without user control/intervention, is not hacking. If you're a Windows 10 user then you. In short, there is no way to stop Dropbox from updating itself. When it is running, it will constantly check for updates. When it is not running, two. Your may try moving it from /Applications/ to /Applications/Utilities. Dropbox does not automatically updates when I keep it in Utilities folder.
