Hey there @Traye,

Can you try the following to see if they help you to complete the action:

  • Using a different web browser
  • Using an incognito/private window
  • Clear the browser's cache and trying again

If you're still receiving the same error message, can you please walk me through the steps you're trying to accomplish and where exactly you're getting the error message?

Let me know how it goes - Thanks!

Hi Daphne,

As per your suggestion, after Clearing the browser's cache "delete account" started working fine. 

Thanks

Hey @Traye,

Can you let me know which web browsers you've tried to perform this action on? It would be worth checking if you have any pending updates for your browser since Dropbox works best on the most recent versions of most modern browsers.

If your browser is up to date, then would you mind if I reached out to the email address associated with your Community profile so that we can do some further investigation?

Let me know - Cheers!
