Accessing old dropbox account without mail.

Accessing old dropbox account without mail.

Hello

For each travel I did in the past, I made a separate account. I did it when it wasn`t required to verify the email so i made one up and there was no MFA also.

Now I tried to log into one of the accounts (I still know the passwords), but out of nowhere there is a MFA required and the 6 digit code is sent to the mail I do not have. The emails were made up, just for dropbox. My phone number is also not linked.

Those accounts are very important to me because there are a lot of pictures there from my travels.

 

Is there another way to acces my accounts? Or change the MFA to send the code to my phone.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Kind regards

Silke

If you forgot your password or if you're being prompted for a verification code, there's no way to access the account without access to the old email address. If the fake emails use a real domain name (like gmail.com, etc.), perhaps you can create new mail accounts to match.
