Deleting presence off my devices

Deleting presence off my devices

New member | Level 2

Hello,

I have Dropbox installed on my laptop and my desktop pc and also access it through my iPad.

My laptop is getting old and i want to donate it to a charity that refurbishes them to give to school children whose parents cannot afford to buy them one.

I need to delete my dropbox presence on the laptop but keep it on the desktop and iPad.

How do i do it? 

Am not too techy so needs to be a simple explanation please.

Thanks

Hi there @Brendap51, I hope you're well today!

You can unlink the laptop from your account from your security page here.

Also, if you want to make sure that none of your files remain on your laptop, once you've unlinked the laptop, you can delete the Dropbox folder from this device.

This won't affect your account and the other devices connected.

Let me know if you have any questions!
