How to see who access your Dropbox link

How to see who access your Dropbox link

I have a private link to a folder. Is it possible to see who accessed it and when, in the arears if I set up a Dropbox Professional, Business Advanced, or Enterprise plan? I want to make sure it was kept confidential with intended parties.

Hey there @BY4, thanks for posting your question here. 

Generally, when someone opens a shared link who wasn't specifically invited to the file, or doesn't have a Dropbox account, no details will be displayed.

Even if you have a Dropbox Business account, if they weren't invited to the file or if they are not part of the team, they'll appear as a Guest

You can find more information about this, here

However, do you specifically want to be able to see who views the shared link or restrict access to it?

Let us know and we'll take it from there. Cheers!

Hi!

Thank you for the response! I'd like as much data as possible. I guess the shared link wasnt the greatest idea in hind-sight and can ad invites instead. Is it possible to get ANY data at all with what I have?

I'm sorry to jump in here, but would the traffic and insights feature work for what you had in mind @BY4?

Hey Walter! Thank you. Yes, I think it would, if I can see it in the rears as well

You sure can @BY4

You'll be able to access the traffic and insights tab from the right hand pane when you're previewing shared files. 

Let us know if you have any more questions!

Thank you! Is there a way to see a larger report of insights with all docs in a folder, so I dont have to click through each one> There are a lot of docs in there to have to do that, ha!

Hey @BY4, you can submit this as a feature you'd like to see in the future, here

There, users who share the same interest as you can comment on and upvote your idea. 

I know this isn't much, but I hope this helps to some extent!
