Can I control who has access to files with Dropbox Business?

Can I control who has access to files with Dropbox Business?

Explorer | Level 3

Our organization currently uses Dropbox Plus. We have about 10 users and everyone has access via the same user name and password to all the files.
If I switch the account to Dropbox business can I then control who has access to which files? And to do this would I need to select 10 users on the business option?
What I'd like to do (if this is possible) is select the plan that includes 3 users, but only use one of them and allow everyone access to all the files with the exception of a couple that have restricted access to a couple of team members only.

Re: Personal folders on a business account

Hi there @ccwashington, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

Just to note, sharing the credentials for a Dropbox account is against the Dropbox Terms of Service. I would highly recommend against this as it poses a security risk for the account.

 

In this case, the Business plan would indeed work the best as you can restrict access to specific subfolders of a team folder for members of the team, and overall manage access at a more granular level.

 

You can check out how to restrict access to folders from here.

 

Let me know if you have any questions!
