The security checkup tool is a simple and accessible way to review and improve important account protection and recovery settings. With it, you can easily:
  • Verify your email address so you know which one to use if you need to reset your password.
  • Review the devices and web browsers that are signed in to your account, and remove the ones you don’t use anymore.
  • Review third-party apps that have permissions to access your account.
  • Update your password if you're worried that your account was hacked or if you've ever reused your password on another website.
We’re excited to give you a new way to keep all your important work safe in Dropbox. You can start using the security checkup tool today.
