Can I share a Dropbox account with someone else?

Updated Apr 11, 2024

For security reasons, sharing an account with others isn't recommended. Sharing your Dropbox password with others also violates the Dropbox Terms of Service


It’s not necessary to share an account in order to share files with someone. In this case, the person you want to share with should create their own account, and then you can send a link to the file. 


If you need to collect a file from someone else, you can send them a file request—even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. Learn how to create and manage file requests.


If you want to share files and storage space as part of a team or group, check out Dropbox Standard, Advanced, Business, Business Plus, and Enterprise, or Dropbox Family. Alternatively, learn how to join a Dropbox team or invite someone to your team.
