How do I use remote wipe to delete the Dropbox folder from a member's lost or stolen 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 at dropbox.com.
  2. Click Admin Console in the left sidebar.
  3. Click Members in the left sidebar.
  4. Click the name of the member whose device you want to unlink.
  5. Under Devices, click the X next to the device you'd like to remove.
  6. In the pop-up window, check Delete files from [Organization name Dropbox] the next time this computer comes online and click Unlink.
