2FA and shared folders

New member | Level 2

Hi

If I enable 2FA on my dropbox account how does this effect current users I have given access to some shared folders? 

Will they still have access or will they need to also enable 2FA?

Thanks

Hi Gary, enabling 2FA only affects your account when you login to it. 
 
It doesn’t affect users who are members of your shared folders, since they would technically be different accounts.
 
Hope this helps to clarify matters!
