Web session control helps safeguard access to organization data by allowing admins to control how long team members can be signed into dropbox.com. There are two different options for web session control:
Admins can use these controls independently, or together.
Note: Web session control will only affect team members’ access to dropbox.com. It won’t affect access to the Dropbox mobile or desktop app.
When team members reach the limit the admin has set, their web session will expire. When they try to take any action on dropbox.com, they’ll be signed out and be prompted to sign in again. Reaching the end of a web session limit won’t affect any file downloads that are in progress.
When admins set a fixed session length, the session is measured from the time a team member signs in and the sessions are calculated as a number of days. For example, if an admin selects one week, the fixed session will last for seven days from the time the team member signs in.
To adjust these settings, navigate to the web session control section of the admin console:
Note: Reducing the fixed session length will sign out all team members. Admins may want to make this change at a time when it won’t disrupt their team.
