It was linked to your account? Look at the list of linked devices and active web sessions on your Security page.

Hi Rich

Thanks, I looked and it is not linked now. Does that mean that she will not get a message saying she has new documents loading each time I add something? I also changed the password. thanks

If it's not showing as a device on your Security page, then the device can't access your account.

Also, keep in mind that changing the password doesn't prevent an already-linked device from accessing your account. Your password is only used for the initial link (and to sign into the Dropbox website). Once a device is linked, your password is no longer used, and changing it does nothing for that device.
