Can I share a Dropbox account with someone else?

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

If you share your Dropbox account credentials with someone and they change the email or password associated with your account, we won’t be able to help you regain access to your account.


  • 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 want to share files and storage space as part of a team or group, check out Dropbox Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise, or Dropbox Family.
