Plus plan and shared link controls (legacy

Helpful | Level 6


in light of recently announced upcoming changes to Dropbox Plus plan (so called "upgrade" to 2TB and €20+ price increase), I would like some clarifications about shared link controls on the Plus plan.

Currently, shared link controls is not part of the feature list of a newly created/upgraded Plus plan.

However, Plus plans created before the November 2017 plan scheme & features changes (when Dropbox personal plans were split between Plus and Professional) used to have shared link controls included in their features, and this feature was granted to be carried over even after the new feature list scheme took over, as long as the account upgrade was payed for without breaks in payments. This policy was discussed even here in the community, see for reference this community thread

Indeed, as a long-time Plus plan subscriber, I was able to use this very useful feature (now common even in basic/free tiers competing cloud storage services...) under my Plus plan in the past two years.

Newly announced June 2019 changes to the Plus plan include some feature upgrades (2TB, etc.) and a (+20dizzy face price hike. However, if I understand it correctly, shared link controls feature is still reserved for (new?) Professional plans. 

My question is, provided that I continue to renew my Plus subscription without interruption even at the new, more expensive, rate, will my account maintain shared link controls as it currently does? Will you maintain this policy of dragging existing features for your long-time subscribers?

Thanks in advance for the clarifications.

Hey there @lamu
As you mention, should you continue your subscription, yes, you’ll keep the features that you already have access to, including shared link permissions. 
I hope this helped to some extent!
