Dropbox Places Device Connection Limits on Free Accounts

Dropbox, which previously let users of its free file-sharing service connect an unlimited number of devices, will now only allow them to connect three devices, the company announced in an update to its product help page. The change is Dropbox’s latest effort to convert non-paying users of its file-sharing service to paying customers and comes amid a broader push at the company to promote higher-margin products like electronic signature software. 

Dropbox, in its fourth-quarter earnings call last month, said it is already making progress on this front. Dropbox’s average revenue per user during the quarter was $119.61, up from $113.39 a year ago. Now the question is whether the company can move beyond its roots in file-sharing into other types of software and services that are attractive to businesses.
