Remove third-party service contacts

You can import your contacts from Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook to your Dropbox account. This feature makes it easy to share and collaborate with all of your contacts directly from Dropbox.

Import your contacts

  1. Sign in at dropbox.com.
  2. Click your name or avatar at the top of any page.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click Connected apps.
  5. Click Connect next to the service you want to import contacts from.

Dropbox also saves contacts that you share files or folders with.

Once you import your contacts, you can easily share with your contacts. Their names and email addresses will auto-populate when you share a file or folder and you can select from them.

Note: Dropbox can't share or edit your contacts in any way.

Remove third-party contacts

Follow the steps below to remove third-party service contacts from your Dropbox, but note that this action will disconnect all third-party services.

  1. Sign in at dropbox.com.
  2. Click your name or avatar at the top of any page.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click Connected apps.
  5. Under Connected services, click Remove all services and imported contacts.
  6. Confirm this action in the pop-up window by clicking Remove all.

To reconnect a service, click the Connect your [service name] account link by the name of the service you'd like to link to your Dropbox account.

Note: When you remove your Outlook account from Dropbox, Dropbox can't access any of your Microsoft data. However, if you check in your Microsoft account, it may still show that Dropbox is connected to your account. This is a Microsoft API limitation, and Dropbox no longer has access once you remove Outlook from your account.
