I have committed the cardinal sin.
I have lost my backup code and 2FA. I have had this account for 10+ years and I recently enabled 2FA now I am stuck.
Is there a way for dropbox to change 2FA settings? If I have to prove my identity I will be more than happy to do so.
Please help me with your suggestions.
No, sorry, there isnt.
Are you still logged in on a device? Did you set up the emergency text system or not?

Hi @Mark ,
Dropbox was installed on my secondary iphone.
Initially, when I tried logging in a few days back and did not have 2FA code, dropbox sent an approval request to iphone but the app of offload by iphone cause the usage. I assumed downloading the app again will trigger an approval to my iphone but unfortunately, I was requested to log into dropbox on my iphone as well.
I am not sure if I have set an "emergency text system" since I signed into dropbox ages ago. Is the "emergency text system" a keyword or a password or a code. If it is a password I will have it cause I have a note of all my dropbox passwords.
Hey @Dorian Gray, I hope you are well!
Have you tried checking in this Help Center article that gives a few ideas on how you can solve 2FA issues?
It would be great if you can check any devices, to see if are connected to your account there as well, so you can disable the feature from there.
Don't hesitate to let me know if you still have issues after trying those steps.
Hi @Megan ,
I am doing good. Thank you for asking.
Hope you are doing well.
I was not lucky to find a device that has dropbox singed into but I have my old phone(2015) I may have logged into it but since it does not have a battery I was not able to check it. I have placed an order for a new battery it should take a week at least, once I get it will update the thread.
Thank you very much. I am totally to blame. I should have managed it better.
I tried opening the link that you had shared but it is redirecting me to Dropbox support homepage where I am not able to see an option for sign-in issues. Would you be able to help me with the steps?
Hi @Walter ,
Thank you. I did open it in incognito mode but signed in and then tried to open the link that was the mistake.
Now I am able to create a ticket thanks to you but I received this message 😕
