You linked your computer, tablet or phone with your Dropbox account and you have loaned, lost or it was stolen? From that device or computer anyone can then access your Dropbox files, even if you change the password for your account. To cut off all contact with a device, you must separate your Dropbox account and in this tutorial I will show you how to do that.
