How do I delete the Dropbox folder from a lost or stolen device?

If you're a Dropbox Pro or Dropbox Business user, you can use remote wipe to delete your Dropbox folder from a linked device.

The admin of a Dropbox Business team can only use remote wipe to delete a team member's work Dropbox folder from a linked device. If you've connected your personal Dropbox to your work Dropbox, you can use remote wipe to delete your personal Dropbox folder from a device as well.
