How to block installation of Dropbox

Is there a possibility to block the installation from apps like Dropbox? A regular user can now (although not admin) install the Dropbox application.

Hi @scarpa, thanks for messaging today!

 

While the Dropbox desktop application can be installed without admin permissions, this will affect it as shown in this article.

 

If the computer is managed by a company, the IT admin might be able to prevent unauthorized installation of apps via the OS, or security settings.

 

Hope this helps to clarify matters!
