Please visit our COVID-19 Resources page for useful payroll and reference information. During this time, when many companies are forced to telework, AccountEdge Hosted may be a good option. Host your company file to be accessed remotely from any device, for as long as you need. You can go back to your regular setup when you no longer need remote accessibility. If you’d like to discuss that or any other teleworking solution with a product specialist, please call 800.322.6962. Be safe.

Dropbox Access Permision Required

No one can access your AccountEdge folder on Dropbox without your permission.

Lost iPad or iPhone

If your iPhone or iPad is lost, you have a couple of choices with regard to your data. You can remove the iPhone or iPad in the devices list in the Manage AccountEdge Mobile window. This will remove the device from your Dropbox account.

Since a single Dropbox account and password is shared for all of your devices, you might want to change your Dropbox password. You can go to and change your password and then in AccountEdge use the Reauthorize button on the Manage AccountEdge Mobile to enter the new password. This will leave your data intact in Dropbox.

Using the Unlink feature in the Manage AccountEdge Mobile window removes all AccountEdge data from Dropbox. After Unlinking and possibly changing your Dropbox password, you can re-Link to your Dropbox account and sync.

You might also consider a remote wipe of your device. This can be done using the Find My iPhone feature which allows for remotely wiping and locking the device. Check with the folk in an Apple store near you for details.
