How to get the list of logins to one's account after security breach

How to get the list of logins to one's account after security breach

Hey everyone,

 

I've just been told that my password used for dropbox has been compromised and I need to verify that no one other than me has connected to my account. For this I'd need a list of all log-ins to my account, do you know where I can find it?

 

Thanks everyone,

 

Bruno

I'm afraid you cant - that data is not stored. 

 

You can however, see logged in devices and web sessions at https://www.dropbox.com/account/security

Thanks a lot Mark!

 

That's completely crazy that this data is not stored, I'm going to suppress my account right now then.

Hi @Bruno14, was this email sent to you via Dropbox itself, or another service?

Could you let us know more details on this matter?

The security page @Mark suggested will show you the various devices and web sessions when the account was accessed, so if you see any at an unusual time, you can hover over the i icon to see the IP address of where the login originated from.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know!

Hi @Jay, the password was indicated compromised by google Chrome.

The problem is I can't see the history of connections to my account, for instance the ones I've done this afternoon, so since I've not used Dropbox for the past month and the security breach is recent I could check whether there has been a connection in the last month or not. If it was the case I would react to protect the data stored in dropbox.

Do you see?

Could you clarify what you mean by Chrome stating it was compromised? Was this a message by the browser, or an email you received?

Regardless, I'd recommend changing the password on your Dropbox account just to be certain, and remove any unknown devices and sessions connected to your account.

Hey Jay,

 

thanks a lot for your swift answer! I've changed the password right away last week so no worries.

When Chrome warns that the password saved for a website has been compromised, it says that this password has been seen in data breaches reports online: https://www.wired.com/story/chrome-password-popups/

 

Cheers,

Thanks for the info, I'm glad to hear you changed your credentials on the site.

The message you received most likely is related to this incident in 2016 regarding the passwords on Dropbox.

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
