Cancel a free trial of Dropbox Business

If you signed up for a Dropbox Buisness trial, this article will tell you how to cancel your free trial before it ends so you don’t get charged.

Note: Only an admin can cancel a Dropbox Business trial. If you’re a team member instead, contact your team's admin.

Terms of Dropbox Business free trial

When you signed up for your free trial, you received an email from Dropbox with the length and details of your trial. If you don’t see it in your inbox, check your spam folder.

If you cancel your free trial before it expires, you’ll return to the type of account you had before you signed up for the free trial. Your team will go into a locked state, which allows the team to continue access to the team files, but removes most team syncing and sharing features. You can disband your team to remove all team access. 

Check if a free trial is canceled

Once you cancel your free trial, you should receive a confirmation email from Dropbox. If you don’t see it in your inbox, check your spam folder.

If you got charged for Dropbox Business

If your free trial already ended and you started getting charged for Dropbox Business, you can downgrade your team to a locked state right now by canceling your current subscription. Your Business features will be downgraded at the end of your current billing cycle. You won’t lose any of your files and you won’t get charged on your next billing date.
