Changing the account name


Changing the account name

New member | Level 2

I wish to change the name that shows up on top of my Dropbox administration panel. I had signed up for a business folder at one point, through my personal account, and now that business name is "stuck" up there instead of my personal name. When I go to avatar>settings they say click on the "profile" tab but I don't have a profile tab. It only has a "General" tab, and when I go there, my personal name shows up only, not the business name. But somehow the business name is there in the heading of my admin panel, and I can't get rid of that name.


What can I do?


Many thanks

Re: Changing the account name


Hi @Levanah, thanks for messaging today!


If you have a paired personal and work account, then the name of your Dropbox account is shared between the two.


This means it won’t be possible to have different names between the personal and work accounts.


If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
