How can I remove members that I added by mistake to my account?

New member | Level 2

I am the Admin of my account. How do I remove members from my dropbox that looks like they have complete access to my account that I did not mean to give access to? I was only trying to give access to a certain folder. THANKS in advance for your help.

Hey @Davis1972.

Thanks for posting your question in our Community. 

You can revert the members you accidentally invited to your team account back to individual Dropbox accounts, instead of deleting them. Deleting them, would completely delete the accounts they joined the team with and any files they had in them. 

Please find the steps to offboard them from your team account and revert them back to individual users here. 

Let me know if you need further assistance with this.
