Hi @sdshahbazi01, thanks for posting on the Community!

This is generally a security measure to prevent multiple attempts to reset passwords.

Could you try waiting for 24 hours and then attempt to reset the password again? 

As you didn't receive any emails, could you try adding no-reply@dropbox.com to your contacts list, and check the spam folder the next time you attempt to reset the password?

Keep me updated with any progress!

My password no longer works.

I've tried resetting my password, but keep getting the message "Too many incorrect attempts. Please try again in a few minutes."

I wait 24hours, sometimes weeks, but still get this message and can not reset my password.

Please can anyone help.

Hi @JasonX, welcome to our Community! 

Do you have access to the email address linked to your Dropbox account? 

If you do, would you mind if I sent an email your way, so we can investigate further? 

Please keep me updated!

Hi Megan

 

I do have access to the email address connected to the account. 

It's also the account connected to my personal account.

 

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Hi

Our email conversation seems to have stopped since I sent you the credentials for my second account. Did you receive them? If so, did you manage to look into the issue?

 

Many thanks
