I wonder if a dropbox account password can be easily hack by brute force?
After several attemps, does dropbox warns us? Block the account?
thanks for your help.
Hi @Raiden; thanks for posting on our Community!
To directly get to the chase, yes, in the case of a brute force attack as you put it, the account will get blocked (and will give an error upon a login attempt) due to rate limiting and will be reset after 24 hours.
I hope this information helps!
Thanks mate, I just wanted to have an exact date from Dropbox.
Considering how long it's been, it's unlikely that they can provide an exact date. One of my accounts was created in 2017, and it was receiving the notifications from the time it was created.
