Sharing access to Dropbox account by providing Username and PW

Sharing access to Dropbox account by providing Username and PW

Hello,

 

I want to allow several people in my family free access to my Dropbox account.

 

They actually live in different locastions and time-zones: Seattle, Paris, France, Munich Germany for example.

 

How can I avoid having to receive the 6-digit Dropbox verification log-in codes at my address and then having to relay to them the  code each time they try to log in?

Hi @lacitadelle123, thanks for joining the Community.

It sounds like you're sharing account credentials for a single Dropbox account. 

There isn't a method to disable the verification login PIN, since it is a security measure when an unusual login is detected.

Additionally, account sharing is a violation of the Dropbox terms of service, and could result in the account being terminated.

I hope this helps to clarify matters.
