Linking Your Computer to MIT Dropbox for Business

Initial Set Up

If the Dropbox application on your computer is currently linked to your Dropbox account, you don't need to do anything — you can just keep using it without having to sign in.

However, if you need to relink your computer or link a new one, you'll need the latest version of the application to connect to the MIT Business account using Touchstone.

Follow these steps to link the computer to your account:

  1. Run the Dropbox application.
  2. Select I already have a Dropbox account and click Continue.
  3. Enter your full MIT email address but leave the password field blank. Click Continue.
  4. Click the Get your link code button.
  5. Your information will be authenticated using your certificate. If you do not have a certificate installed, you will be directed to authenticate using MIT Touchstone.
  6. A Dropbox page displaying a special code will open up. Click the Copy link code button, or select and copy the code manually.
  7. Go back to the Dropbox application and click Paste, or manually paste the code into the field and click Continue.
  8. Once submitted, your account will be linked to your MIT Dropbox for Business.
