Merging private and business account files using two different mail-adresses

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Dear community,

I have a private account using a private mail address, for which I am also using the mobile app. Now I was invited to a Dropbox Business Team using my professional e-mail address. I would love to have the files from both accounts in the same mobile app. Is that somehow possible? It would be important for me to keep private and business accounts separate. 

Thanks so much, and best

Maria

Hey there @Maria-Therese,

You can connect your personal and business account so that you can easily switch between the accounts and have both present on the Dropbox apps. They will still be completely seperate under their different email addresses.

You can connect the two accounts with these steps:

  1. Sign in to dropbox.com with your Dropbox Business account credentials.
  2. Click your avatar at the top-right corner of the page.
  3. Choose Settings.
  4. Click Connect under "Connect your personal Dropbox".
  5. Enter the personal account credentials.

Then you can follow the steps outlined here (based on the OS of your device) on how to sign into both accounts through the Dropbox apps. Once you've done so, you will be able to switch between the accounts as you need to.

Let me know if you have any other questions - Thanks!
