Re: Hide Private Folders


Hello @bollemie - happy Friday 

The best way to keep things neat and your accounts separate would be to install (and use) the desktop app on the work device so you can have the folders you mentioned available through your Dropbox folder on that computer and access your personal account only from the website (and possibly from an incognito window to avoid having your browser store your login credentials). 

You can also connect both of your accounts; always according to your needs that is. 

I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any follow up questions.
