I'm concerned about my account security

I'm concerned about my account security

Explorer | Level 4

I'm worried about my drop boxs security. If someone would've signed in, would I ALWAYS get an email stating that someone from another device signed in, no matter what? (i have the dropbox app installed on an android)

Hi @ad, thanks for posting today!

 

Depending on your notification settings, you'll get email notifications that someone logged in using a browser, or that someone has connected a new device or app to your account.

 

If you need any more details, feel free to message back!

Yes jay, my notifications were on. Now since they are on, i will get a notification EVERYTIME someone signs in right? There can't be a situation where a person signs in and it doesn't show, if the notifs are on, correct?


Plus, i logged in and out of my account 4 times yesterday using my phone. However, I only got an email 3 times. Its probably because I've signed in using the same device correct?

Is it possible that older session was still active when you logged in previously? This could prevent the email from being sent.

 

Is there any particular reason for concern? Are you sharing your account credentials with another person?
