Learn how to get the most out of Dropbox with other users like you.
A tidy space, a to-do list and some time savers - if those don’t help you to organize your day, we’ll be shocked! Got any tips of your own to share? We’d love to hear them!
Thanks for visiting the Dropbox Community. I hope you are well! Sorry to hear you didn't find what you needed with us here on the Basic plan but I hope you can continue to use Dropbox in some capacity with the 3 devices. Just out of curiosity, what is it that you use Dropbox for? I'd love to hear how you use it and think about any ways that we might be able to make it run a bit smoother for you, despite the 3 device limitations.
Thanks again, and have a lovely day
Hi. The particular purpose I was using Dropbox for was saving a file which I use on multiple platforms. (I used an Android-specific password manager until the author dropped support due to API changes.)
When Dropbox restricted access to 3 devices, they removed this use case in an attempt to make me pay for more online storage than I require.
I thus moved the files to a different cloud provider's storage.
I still occasionally use Dropbox but don't put critical information there.
We're sorry to hear you needed to move your files elsewhere but glad you're still using Dropbox in some capacity. Have you tried using Dropbox Passwords as mentioned by Amy above? It's available on a Basic plan and could be an alternative to the Android-specific password manager you used to use?
Thanks again, and have a great day!
