I have a free Dropbox account and have it on a couple computers. Is there a limit on the number of computers with this free account? I've tried to get it on more than three with the same login, but it won't let me. Thanks!

Hi @SusanSpears, thanks for posting on the Community!

On a Dropbox Basic plan, as you've discovered, there is a limit of 3 devices, which could be desktop, laptop, mobile or tablet devices.

Multiple logins on the same computer, but with different computer profiles, would also count as a separate device connection.

With paid Dropbox subscriptions, there are no device limits currently.

If you need any more details, feel free to message back!
