Re: Security

Hi @Antonio; thanks for joining our Community!

 

I'm not sure what the issue is here; can you elaborate a bit for me please? 

 

Even though this seems to be out of our remit, here are some general suggestions on how you can keep your Dropbox account secure:

  • Change the password for the email account you entered into the website
  • Change the passwords for any other accounts (such as your email) that use the same email/password login.
  • Install an anti-virus program on your computer
  • Make sure your files are backed up.

Last but not least, if you're not sure about a link you received, I'd suggest not clicking on it before checking with the person who shared it with you or verifying its actual address (URL). This is purely for security purposes as links can easily be used for phishing scams etc. 

 

I hope this helps to some extent and please let me know if you have any questions, Antonio. 

 

PS: I'm removing the link you posted to align with our Community's Guidelines
