Dropbox Security

From the dropbox security tab dropbox.com/account#security you can view which computers, phones, and tablets that have access to your Dropbox. If you find any other device which you are not using to Login your Dropbox account, it means that some one hacked your dropbox account and using it from that device.

These lists also allow you to view the devices and browsers currently using your Dropbox account and ensure no one else has access.
