Sign in to your personal and work accounts on all devices

If you're a Dropbox Business user, or a member of a team, you can have both a personal and work account on any computer or mobile device. This allows you to keep personal and work stuff separate and accessible from anywhere.

You'll see two separate Dropbox folders wherever you choose to connect accounts: your computer, mobile device, or at dropbox.com. You can click each folder to switch between accounts, without having to sign in and out every time.
