Locking Dropbox to one computer

Locking Dropbox to one computer

Is there a way to secure dropbox in a way that it can only be used from one computer? I believe the IP address of the computer changes, so I cant lock it by IP. I could setup 2 factor so that if someone logs in they need a code, but im wondering if there is another way to prevent access to the account from anywhere else besides the computer I install it on.

Hello @jonathanw, thanks for posting your question here. 

Currently, only Business team admins can limit the number of devices that are connected.

However, you can always post this as a feature that you'd like to see being implemented in the future, here

In the meantime, you could always have a look through your Security tab for any other devices that are linked to your account. 

I hope this helps to some extent but let me know if you have any other questions. Cheers!
