Re: Can I use Dropbox Basic as a business for free?

Hello there @Piknockyou, I hope you're having a good week so far!

 

We don't place any restrictions on what plans you can use depending on what you'd like to use the account for, so from our side it would be perfectly fine to use a Basic account.

 

However, as a business you may have certain restrictions in place for how you are required to store your data. I would suggest checking from the business itself to see if there are any restrictions there.

 

For example, if you need to store sensitive data like Protected Health Information (PHI), then you may need to use a Dropbox Business account as this plan offers compliance with HIPAA. 

 

You can check out some more info on this here.

 

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