Local access only: is there a way to block "remote" users ?

Local access only: is there a way to block "remote" users ?

New member | Level 2

We want employees to acess their Dropbox accounts only from our office computers, never from home, never from their phones, etc.

Is there a way to create a white list using IPs or Mac Addresses so we may grant access only to the local computers ?

 

Thx in advance.

Hey @biagi, I'd happily send you the relevant info in regards to your security-specific inquiry!
 
Based on your description, it's my understandin that you're working on a Dropbox Business account, is that right? 
 
If so (& you’re the team admin), please note that admins of a Dropbox Business team on an Advanced or Enterprise plan can let team members access Dropbox by signing in to a central identity provider. With single sign-on (SSO), you can put the identity provider you already trust in charge of authentication, and team members can access Dropbox without another password to manage.
 
Additionally, you could check our Device approvals feature, which is currently available to admins on Advanced or Enterprise plans 
 
I hope that this is helpful to you & please do let me know if I you’d like me to explain any of the above in a bit more detail. Thanks for checking in on our Community on this inquiry & please keep me let me know whether this is what you were looking for initially!
