I created an account for a shared folder, but can others now see my whole account?

My attorney set up a Dropbox folder for me to access. I had to set up a Dropbox account to access the fiolder. Can he see the rest of my account or just the folder for us to share?

Hello there @mmouer, thanks for reaching out to us on the Dropbox Community. 

 

The only content that is shared between the two of you is only whatever is in that shared folder

 

In other words, just like you don't gain any additional access beyond that of the shared folder, they can't see anything else either. 

 

I hope this helps!
