How do I verify my email address?

« Back to Help Center

In order to use some features of Dropbox as well as post in our forums, the email address for your account needs to be verified.

If you've ever clicked on a link in an email we've sent you, you're all set—your email address has already been verified. If your email address hasn't been verified yet, we'll give you a heads-up as needed (for example, the first time you accept a shared folder invitation). You can also do it right now:

Verify your email address

  1. Sign in to the Dropbox website.
  2. Send a verification email to your email address by clicking the button below:
  3. Look for the email from Dropbox in your inbox and click on the link in the email. A confirmation message will appear in your web browser.

Didn't get the email?

Check your spam folder to make sure it didn't end up there. You can also add the email address no-reply@dropbox.com to your address book or change the email address for your Dropbox account, then try sending the email again.

If you ever change the email address for your account, you'll need to verify it again the next time you do something like send a referral or shared folder invitation.
