Cannot login to my Dropbox account - I cannot access to the email associated to the account

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hi, all,

I have a dropbox account that I didn't access to for years. I realize I have some important document saved in this account. I was trying to login, with correct password. But I got the information that I have to enter a 6-digit code that was sent to the email address associated with the Dropbox account. Unfortunately I am not able to access to the email address and not able to enter this 6-digit code. In this case, is there any way to access to my Dropbox account as I still remember the password?

 

Thanks in advance.

You will need to contact support for that via www.dropbox.com/support

 

If you do not have that option while logged in go to the page via an incognito window and select the option for log in issues.

May I know how you were able to solve this issue? I have one such account with valid dropbox login. I do not however have access to this email anymore. I have not been able to login to the dropbox account as well.

 

Thanks!

As far as I remember, I downloaded the Dropbox app to my PC, and then login without any problem. With the correct username and password, you will be able to login. Then, do not forget to change your profile with the up to date email address.
