How do I earn bonus space for referring friends to Dropbox?

You can get extra space by inviting your friends to try out Dropbox. Both you and your referral will receive bonus space if your referral completes these steps:

  1. Accepts your invitation to sign up for an account.
  2. Installs the Dropbox desktop app.
  3. Signs in from the desktop app.
  4. Verifies their email address.

Bonus space by account type

  • Basic accounts get 500 MB per referral and can earn up to 16 GB.
  • Pro accounts get 1 GB per referral and can earn up to 32 GB.

Track the status of your referrals by clicking View all space earned in your account settings.


  • Sharing a folder does not count as a referral. To refer friends you'll need to sign in to your account, click Settings, and then click Invite a friend.

Can I earn bonus space for referrals sent from my Dropbox free team?

If you are a member of a free team, you cannot receive referral bonuses on your work team account. If you would like to apply a bonus to your personal account, contact Dropbox support.

How do I earn bonus space for referring from the Android app?

  1. Tap the menu button on the top-left corner of the app.
  2. Tap the gear icon (or Settings in older versions of the app).
  3. Tap Invite friends.

This will generate an email with a unique referral code. You and your referral will earn 500 MB bonus space if your referral completes all required steps.
