Hi everyone 👋🏽

 

Jumping in here to help clarify some issues you’ve pointed out in this thread.
 
As mentioned before, if your date of birth doesn’t meet the age requirement for Dropbox, your account will be deleted in 48 hours, and you’ll receive an email and a notification confirming this. Read more here.
 
The age requirements are: 
  • In the United States: You must be 13 or older.
  • Outside the United States: You must be 16 or older.
 
If you added the wrong date by mistake:

 

💌 Please contact support so we can manually verify your date of birth and edit it for you:
 
Tip: you can find your support entitlements here.
 
If you have access to email support:
  1. Contact Dropbox support within 30 days to have your account reactivated. 
  2. Our support team will ask you to provide proof of your date of birth. 
  3. After your information is verified, you’ll be notified through email when your account has been reactivated.
 
If you don’t have access to email support:
 
  1. You can contact support from an incognito/private browsing window and submit a help request. Click Can’t sign in? then select an account access issue, for example: Disabled account, Subject: Incorrect date of birth.

  1. To speed things up, please attach one of the following docs to your inquiry, so we can verify the correct date:
    • Birth certificate 
    • Passport (the page containing your name and date of birth)
    • Driver’s license, learner’s permit are acceptable forms of proof of age
    • Any official government document issued by a national agency or equivalent is acceptable.  Note: please do not upload any of these documents through the community forums.
 
 
  1. Our team will verify this info and make a change if accepted.
 
Hope this helps!
Sam

Hey @Muhammad Mohsin - sorry to hear about this.


I understand that an incorrect date of birth was entered while signing up for an account or while updating your account details.


If the date of birth that was entered does not meet the minimum age requirements, the user will be considered a minor as per our terms of service and the account will then be made inaccessible and deleted.


You can see this page for more information.

 

If this was indeed a mistake and you'd like to correct this, please let us know if it would be OK for us to reach out via email.

 

Thanks!
