I want to stop some synced computer users from accessing dropbox online.

This new version of Dropbox allows a user to "View on Dropbox.com" when you right-click the Dropbox icon. Can I turn this off? I do not want every computer I own to be able to view the online account. I used selective sync, to limit what each computer can access, and now that action is defeated with this new? capability.

That function has ALWAYS been present - either by clicking on the Dropbox globe on the software pop up, or simply going to www.dropbox.com would have you auto logged in.

I'm afraid that there is no way to stop this at all.

Thanks so much for your help, Mark.

 

To Dropbox - Sigh. Time to find a new cloud storage. :-(
