How do I prevent non team member from trying to log in as a team admin?

Advanced Collaborator | Level 15

Hello,

How do I prevent non team member from trying to log in as a team admin?

 

Admin Console > Settings > Device > Network Control > then turn ON  "Allow Dropbox traffic for members only?"

 

Am I correct or is there anything else I can do as a team admin?

 

Thank you.

Hello @jazzmeg1, thanks for posting!

 

They would only be able to log in if they have the credentials for the admin's Dropbox account.

 

As long as you haven't shared your Dropbox password with anyone, and are the sole owner of the email account, then they can't sign in as the team admin.

 

The setting that you mentioned is to prevent non-team members from sending or receiving Dropbox traffic from your team's account.

 

Let me know if this helps!

Hey @jazzmeg1, by setting up network control, it helps team admins to manage how members of their team access Dropbox. 

 

You can find more information about this, here

 

I hope this helps, but let is know if you have any other questions. Cheers!
