I've set up a new account by mistake!

Level 2

Duh. I've set up a new account by mistake (I think with an alternative email account?)

Now I can't access my old account and data, although it's still visible on my iphone DropBox app.

How do I log into my fomer Drobox account on my laptop?

Hi there @saramark
If you’ve signed into a different account, you can simply sign out of it, depending on the platform you are using. You can find more relevant steps outlined here
