Will everyone on my team have access to my files?

Will my files be viewable by team members or admins if I join a Dropbox for Business team?

Joining a Dropbox for Business team doesn't make any of your files or folders available to your team members. By default, everything in your Business account is private. Other team members, including your admin, won't be able to access your files unless you decide to share them with shared folders or read-only links.

It isn't possible for your Business admin to see what you have in your Dropbox while you're a member of the team. However, your admin does have control over the account and has the ability to remove access to the account and transfer its contents to another member.

For more information, check out our Dropbox for Business Agreement and Privacy Policy. You may also want to contact your admin to find out more about your team's specific policies and procedures.

How do I collaborate with team members in Dropbox for Business?

To share information with a specific subset of individuals, we recommend using shared folders. Shared folders are ideal for groups of people interested in collaborating on a set of files or folders together. The owner of a shared folder can manage membership of a shared folder by controlling who can invite new members to the folder, and removing members of the folder as needed. Owners can also unshare a folder entirely.

Can I share read-only copies of my files with team members?

Shared links allow you to send read-only links to entire folders, subfolders, or files. Recipients of the link can download the file or folder to a computer or to their Dropbox account. If the user elects to download the file or folder to a Dropbox account, any edits made will not affect the original file—access will be strictly read-only.

Will my team admin have access to files on my personal Dropbox?

Dropbox for Business admins have no control or access to your personal Dropbox. However, please note that if you've linked your personal Dropbox to a company-owned computer or device, that account will be subject to your organization’s policies.

Can I share folders and links with people outside of my Dropbox for Business team?

Admins on your Dropbox for Business account can set your team’s global permissions to determine whether members can share links and/or folders outside of the Dropbox for Business account. To do so, they can visit the sharing tab in the Admin console.
