How to switch between personal and work accounts

If you have both a Dropbox Business and a Dropbox Plus, Professional, or Basic (free) account, you can sign in to both accounts on the same device and easily switch between the two. 

If you have multiple Dropbox Basic, Plus, or Professional accounts, you must log out of one account and sign in to the other in order to switch between the two. Your storage space is separate for each account.
