How do I use remote wipe to delete the Dropbox folder from a member’s device?

If you’re the admin of a Dropbox Business account, you can use remote wipe to delete the Dropbox folder from a team member’s linked device if it's ever lost or stolen.

Note that you can only delete the team member's work Dropbox folder. If a member has also connected a personal Dropbox, they'll need to use remote wipe themselves to delete it.

Remote wipe a team member's device

  1. Sign in to your admin account.
  2. Click on Admin Console in the left sidebar.
  3. Click on the name of the member whose device you want to unlink.
  4. Select the device you want to unlink under Devices and click the X next to it.
  5. In the pop-up window, select the option Delete files from [Pepo Inc Dropbox] the next time this computer comes online and then click Unlink.
