How Dropbox responds to legal requests for information

Updated Aug 04, 2023

Like most online services, we sometimes receive requests from governments seeking information about our users. We scrutinize all data requests to make sure they comply with the law, and we give notice to users when their accounts are identified in a law enforcement request, unless prohibited by law.

We’re committed to being transparent about the requests we receive and have published a transparency report since 2012. See our latest transparency report.

Our Government Data Request Principles cement our commitment to our users’ privacy by describing our approach to dealing with government data requests and by laying out how Dropbox will work to try to change laws to better protect our users’ privacy. Review our Government Data Request Principles.
