Dropbox, like many other cloud services, has the ability to connect to a variety of value-added other web services so you can fax documents, sign them electronically, share documents for a WebEx and other tasks. A current list of all possible app integrations is available here:
https://www.dropbox.com/business/resources/app-integrations

To see which apps you have linked to your account, go to
https://www.dropbox.com/account#security

Good security practice suggests that you should periodically review this list to make sure that you haven’t granted access to an app that you are no longer using.
Just click on the ones that you don't use anymore and remove access to them.

While you are cleaning house, you might want to take care of your other social networking integrations too.

Facebook, Google Twitter and LinkedIn have similar screens where you can audit your account and see what other apps you have linked to them.
