Re: Request Password Expiration

Can I request for my password to expire or will I get notified?

New member | Level 2

Hi there

Continuing my attempts to recover my account, is it possible to know if I can request Dropbox to "Expire" my password or, failing that, can you tell me when my password will expire?

If my Password expires, I can recover my account using the current syst

Re: Request Password Expiration


Hey there @SimonM1, thanks for reaching out to us. 

Currently, there's no option for you to request to expire your password, but you can reset it following these steps

Also, although you don't get a notification as to when your password is going to expire, you'll see an error the next time you try to sign in.

You can find more info about expired passwords here

I hope this helps, but let me know if you have any other questions!
