If you want to change your Dropbox password to keep your account safe against would-be intruders, here's what to do.

Steps to change your Dropbox password

  1. Go to in your web browser and log in.

  2. Click your name in the top-right corner, and select Settings from the drop-down menu.

  3. Click the Privacy tab, and then click Change Password.

  4. Click in the box that says "Old Password" and type in your current password, and then click in the box labelled "New Password" and type in the password that you want to use now.  (Both will appear as bullet points to keep anyone else from spying them.)  Then click Change Password.

That's about all there is to changing your Dropbox password!  Don't forget to write your new password down so that you'll remember it, and be sure to store it in a safe place so that only you can get at it!
