Dropbox puts a limitation for free users

Old users with many devices cannot add new ones, and new users cannot add more than three devices.

Before, starting with anything you need to have a clear idea about the purpose of Dropbox. Well, Dropbox is a storage room for all your work, be it working alone or with your team. A small change in any of the devices automatically gets sync with other devices connected. So, you really don’t need to make changes individually.

Without thinking about the file size you can share anything and everything, even if you don’t have an account. Thus, you and your teammates can always stay updated. Thus, Dropbox can give you a seamless experience- be it showcasing your work, or working with any kind of contents or even tracking the activity of your team members to connecting all your favourite apps. Most importantly all of your works are securely stored. So, you really don’t need to worry at all.

But, now in order to encourage its customers to go for paid plans, Dropbox has introduced new rule by setting up restrictions where users won’t be allowed to connect more than three devices at the same time.

Users having more than three devices before March 2019, can keep them connected if they desire to do so, but, won’t be able to add any new device.

Suppose you get a laptop or a PC and want to connect it too, you cannot do that if you already have more than three devices connected. Any new user can connect up to three devices and in order to connect more, you need to purchase either Plus or professional plan. In case any user is not willing to purchase any of the plans has to connect and disconnect the other devices every time.

So, if you are already connected to three devices that means there is a restriction set for you. Currently, the user needs to pay $9.99 per month for using 1 TB of storage which is the Plus subscription and to avail the Professional Plan users need to pay $19.99 per month for using 2 TB storage. Constantly connecting and disconnecting the devices might be quite frustrating, so better avail the subscription for uninterrupted services.
