I have been denied the extra space when inviting a friend, but he's using his new account

New member | Level 2

The reason for the denial is: it is a suspicious since the new account has been created from the same computer.

That is a reality: he is my son! we are sharing the computer. Is that forbidden? Does it mean that we cannot invite each other?

I understand the check, but, I am not inviting dozens of friends. It is only one. Some years ago I had the same issue, and I forgot it, but now, I think it should have a smart solution.

Best regards

The T&C's, I'm afraid, do state that to qualify for the space you need to install Dropbox on to a unique device.

Well, I am not speaking about iinstalling dropbox in devices, I mean creating a new account. the situation now is: he has been created as a user, but none of us have been granted with 500M. We haven't have the chance to decline the new account creation. that is not fair. Regards

But that's part of the process. In order for a referral to be counted, the person you're inviting must accept the invitiation on a new Dropbox account, install the Dropbox desktop client on a unique comptuer, and verify their email address.
