Deleting your Dropbox account is permanent and can only be done through a browser, not the mobile app. You can delete your Dropbox account from the General page of your account settings on Dropbox's website. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. If you have subscribed to a paid Dropbox account and no longer want to pay to maintain it, you can cancel your subscription, which returns you the free service (which includes 2GB of storage) – there's no need to do anything else. But if you want to delete your Dropbox account completely, you can do that as well, whether you were using a paid subscription or the free Dropbox service. If you choose to delete your Dropbox account, Dropbox will delete all your files from its online servers and remove your account and personal information within about 30 days, so you can no longer sign in to your account. It will also unlink your personal devices from the service and stop all file syncing. Any files you had previously placed in shared Dropbox folders that other Dropbox users have access to are not deleted, nor does Dropbox delete or change any files stored on your devices. In addition, if you have the Dropbox app installed on your devices, you will need to uninstall it yourself. Deleting your Dropbox account is permanent, so be sure you want to do this before starting. If you've settled on deleting your Dropbox account, here's how to do it.
