Hello, since March 2019 free Dropbox accounts are limited to three devices. Does that include the number of smartphones using the Dropbox App with this account or only desktop / laptop computers that sync all files? Regards, Marcus
Solved! Go to Solution.
I'm trying to understand what impact the new "device limit" will have on sharing. I have a free personal account, I'm ok with limiting to 1-2 of my "own" devices. But I have several folders that I share access to with a variety of colleagues (5-30 colleagues per folder). Does this device limit mean that shared access is likewise limited to the total "3 devices" accessing at a time?
To confirm: So others who are "sharing" my files likewise are limited to 3 devices, but I can still have 30 people accessing a file?
Correct. The limit only refers to devices linked to your account.
thank you for the quick answer! 🙂
That means: if I have 3 PCs connected I can't access my Dropbox with the Android app on a new phone (that was not connected before the new limit)? Will it deny login or can I just not sync photos?
