Hi there!

I'm afraid that there is no way to disable the Recents tab from the Dropbox app installed on your iOS device. However, we love hearing feedback on any features that we release, so I'll make sure to pass it along.

Thanks!

Thanks for your answer, my question is not to disable the Recent Tab, but to clear the list only. This is for privacy and personal preference. Appreciate Dropbox team can add this function in next update.

Hi there!

Same goes for clearing the Recents tab, it's not a feature that is possible for the moment, but I'll pass your comments along slightly smiling face

Please include option for clearing recent files viewed or clearing selected files from recent list.

+1 This should be easy to add - and very important for privacy reasons when using a shared device.

Hi there,

Thanks for the feedback all.

I have passed on your feedback to our team.

This is a serious problem. I would not have used Dropbox had I known about this oversight.

I also feel that this is a security issue that needs resolving quickly!

Hi there, 

Thanks for writing back about this. 

I understand your concern. The files that appear in your Dropbox are files that are anyway stored in your account and we only surface the ones that have been recently modified by yourself. 

I have passed on your comments. 

Many thanks!

A "Recents" view is to be added to the Android OS soon. A simple means of disabling or easily clearing this view will be expected by users.
