How do I change my user name for sign-in purposes?

New member | Level 2

I cannot find on any of the help pages how to change my user name for purposes of signing into my account.  My user name that I use for signing in is an old email address which I no longer use and therefore want to change it.

Hey there (@dk55), thanks for posting your question on the Dropbox Forum! 
 
Assuming that you know of the email address & password for your Dropbox account, then all you need to do would be to Sign in online, using your account credentials & navigate on your account tab, where you can change your username. In case you can’t remember your password, then you can easily reset it, following the steps outlined on this resource
 
Alternatively, if’d like to change your email address, you can easily proceed by updating it on your Dropbox account following the steps outlined here. Once you change your email address, you'll use the new email address to log in to Dropbox, and all Dropbox-related emails will be sent to the new address.
 
I hope that this addresses your initial inquiry & please do let me know here in case you have any more questions or I’ve misunderstood your initial description & I’ll follow-up asap. Take care in the meantime!
