How to Merge 2 Accounts

New member | Level 2

Hi 🙂
So I have this one account where a friend bought for me and gave me access to, but it's their email on the user (info@domain.com)

And I have another account which is attached to my main email (myname@gmail.com)

 

My account (myname@gmail.com) have no content in it what-so-ever and I'm OK with it being deleted.

BUT, my question is - how can I change to the email of my own?

meaning - I want this - myname@gmail.com - to be my main & Paid user inside of dropbox.

Right now it's empty and I can't change the email from info@domain.com to myname@gmail.com since myname@gmail.com it's linked to another DropBox user.

What should I do?

to add to that question

Can I DELETE the myname@gmail.com account, and after 30 days re-register with it again?

As soon as you delete the Dropbox account using myname@gmail.com (or change its email address to something different), that email address will be available for use on another account.
