Wrong email when creating Dropbox account, can the owner of the email access my documents?

New member | Level 2

Hello, good evening.
I have created my dropbox account, but I made a mistake in a number in the email and I put one that is not mine.
As I did not realize it and could not enter, I gave him to restore password (so the reset password message will reach the owner of the email).
When I found out I deleted the account, but I don't know if this person can have access to my documents.
I hope someone can help me thanks.

Hey there @Rocio36, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

If you deleted the Dropbox account, then all of the data that was in the account would have been deleted too.

 

This means that the owner of the incorrect email address linked with that Dropbox account won't be able to access anything that was uploaded previously.

 

I hope this info helps, let me know if you have any questions!
