How to clear the recent list of file from iphone?

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

I want to clear the history of recently viewed or edited files, only to clear the file names in recent tab not to delete the file from drop box.

Hey there!
Thanks for writing in about this and for providing feedback on the Recents tab? I'm afraid that there is no way to clear the tab. However, I will make sure that I pass our comments on to our team for feedback

If the priority of features are worked on per how many requests come into support, please add myself and two coworkers to those that would like to be able to clear the Recents tab on the iPhone app. Thanks!

I was disappointed this was not remedied in the recent app update. The inability, in the app or on the website, to clear the recently viewed file history without deleting the file itself, or to disable the recent-history function altogether, is a silly security risk. Does DB plan on changing this?
