How can I change the devices in my Free Dropbox account?

I would like to change the devices in myDropbox account. I would like to have my Android phone be one and two Windows 10 PCs the other two. Where did I find which devices are connected and how do I make a change?

Hey @Kenneth C.2, I hope you're well today!

To change the devices linked to your account, you can unlink any devices that you're not currently using with the steps outlined here.

Once you're under the 3 device limit for the Basic plan, you'll be able to link the devices that you need.

Please keep in mind the device limit if you currently have or would like to keep more than 3 devices linked to your account.

You would need to unlink enough devices to take you below the limit to be able to link a new device, and you'll no longer be able to keep more than 3 devices linked.

Let me know if this helps!

Hi Daphne.

Thank you for replying to my post.  I finally found my way into my my account registry when I realized the icon I should click on had my picture on it. 

I really like Dropbox; have 3 devices connected (2 notebooks and cell phone) planning on trying out new features.  What devices have you connected and what featursdo you use?

I'm glad to hear that's sorted @Kenneth C.2!

At the moment I have my computer, tablet and phone connected with my personal account.

I'm pretty sure that the features I use the most would be File Requests and Smart Sync.

But, with all the photos at this time of year, Camera Uploads has been a life saver for me!

Are there any features in particular that you're curious about? Or perhaps something that you'd like to do but aren't sure what's the best method?

I'd be more than happy to assist with any questions you have, I'm all ears. 👂

Thanks!
