Dropbox Transitions from Unlimited to Metered Storage Due to Misuse by Users
Dropbox has announced a significant change to its Advanced plan, moving away from offering unlimited cloud storage due to misuse by certain users. The company’s official blog post revealed that starting from November 1, 2023, the Advanced plan will transition to a metered storage policy.
The decision to implement this change stems from several factors, including the misuse of the Advanced plan by certain individuals and groups. Dropbox cited cryptocurrency and Chia miners’ reliance on the plan, as well as strangers sharing storage for personal use and resellers, as reasons for the shift in policy.
