How do I leave a shared folder?

« Back to Help Center

You can leave a shared folder at any time by changing the folder's settings on the Dropbox website or deleting it. If you change your mind or leave a folder accidentally, you can rejoin it later.

Keep in mind that when you leave a shared folder, it still lives in the Dropbox accounts of other members. If you're the owner of a shared folder, you may want to unshare the folder or kick out members instead.
