Re: Account Access

How do I get account access again?

I put a two step authentication on a Dropbox account. I don’t have the phone number I used on the account anymore but need my files in that account. How do I get access?

You'll need to use the emergency backup codes that you were given when you first activated two-step authentication. Without them, or without access to another device already linked to your account, you won't be able to sign in.
