Can I use the 'Family plan' for acquaintances who are not real family members?
And is each user protected for their account?

When I changed the language in the settings, the link to change to the family plan disappeared. I am currently reviewing it and I want the link to be visible again.

Hi @anyshin; how are you today?

 

Even though it's called the Family plan, of course you can use it with anyone you want as long as they're 13 years old and above.

 

In addition, each member of a Dropbox Family plan will have their own, private account. Only the files you choose to share can be viewed or edited by others. 

 

For more information, please take a look at the relevant Help Center article:

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any more questions.

This is an additional question.
What is the size of the storage capacity of the personal account of each member of the Dropbox Family?
Also, what is the size of the storage capacity that can be shared?

The Family plan includes 2TB of space, to be shared by all members of the "family." I don't believe there's a set amount for each member. It's just a single pool of space to be shared.

Hey there @anyshin!

 

Can you try changing the language back to what you had it as previously to see if that does the trick, and shows you the link again?

 

Hope that helps!
