Re: If I change my email address on my dropbox account

Hey @HazelVA, you’re under the right impression, hence all your files will be automatically transferred to your new email address once you switch. 
 
From there, please keep in mind that when you change your email address, you’ll have to log in to Dropbox with that one & all Dropbox-related notifications will be sent there moving forward. 
 
I hope that this is helpful to you & please do let me know here in case you have more questions. Happy Monday!

What about connected apps? Will they break?

Hey @cipherguru, thanks for checking with us here & please accept my apologies for the slight delay in replying on my end. Kindly note that if you’ve connected your Dropbox account to third-party services & you’d like to maintain that when changing email addresses, then I can’t guarantee that these will not break, as each application may reset connected apps & this is outside of our control. 
 
I hope that this helps clarify matters to a certain extent & I’m always here if you have any follow-up questions or thoughts. Thanks again!
