I don't want dropbox remembering my logon password. It should have to be typed every time I log into it. I don't see where to "do not remember me." Is this possible?

Are you talking about the web application or the desktop client? In the latter case, please add the appropriate operating system tag to your question. –  Oliver Salzburg Mar 14 '13 at 15:50

@OliverSalzburg "When it starts up" sounds like it's the desktop software. –  Daniel Beck Mar 14 '13 at 15:57

it saves your credential information. To "forget" your account on your machine -- right click the Dropbox icon in the task tray --> Preferences --? Account --> Unlink This Computer.

Then exit dropbox (right click --> Exit) then relaunch the app and it should be like when it was first installed (Do you have an account? Y/N - wizard setup).

Dropbox assumes you sync it with your own computer. In this case you can simply password-protect your computer/system account and change Dropbox folder permissions.

If you're using Dropbox on a public computer then I don't know why you'd want to sync entire Dropbox. You can simply download the files you need through their website and it won't remember you.
