turn off Dropbox advertising prompts?

Helpful | Level 5

How can I turn off these prompts? I've gone through my notification settings on my desktop and online settings, and can't seem to turn off some of the Dropbox  prompts that I'm continuing to get thru my desktop Dropbox notifications. These include:

- try Dropbox Business

- you can change how you store files you're not using regularly

how can I get rid of these??

Currently it isn’t possible to disable those specific notifications that you’re seeing, since it isn’t in the list on the Dropbox site.

I can forward that suggestion to our dev team for their consideration in future.

Hi Lorelei, you can disable the notifications for the Dropbox app via your own OS settings, which will prevent all Dropbox notifications from appearing on your machine.
 
If you’re running Windows, this article might help. For Mac users, this article should assist.
 
Hope this helps!

okay, thanks, but I do need some of the functional notifications. It seems like the newest version of Dropbox has ramped up with a new set of notifications that weren't coming through before.

You should be able to close the notifications when they appear. Is there no option to do so?

Do you mean to "click them away" once they're on the desktop? Yes, I can do that. I posted this because I don't want them to appear, period. They're not part of the list that's in the Dropbox settings for notifications. They're some other layer of notifications that have started showing up once I updated.

I'll take a screenshot once something pops up, and post it here.

Please stop your stupid screen grabs - I HATE IT. I dont care about upgrading dropbox - Only thing I am going to do is delete it, its the only obnoxious notification I get - and I run windows! Please turn it off, or let me turn it off for ever.

I’ve just turned off ALL Dropbox notifications because the stupid app wouldn’t let me opt out of the Dropbox advertising notifications.

Completely agreed.  I dont pay $120 year to see your stupid obnoxious advertisements.

 

Stop this or provide opt-out immediately.
