Account Settings

An Overview of Features within the Account Settings Screen 

Getting started with your FilesAnywhere account? How exciting! There's so much you can do with our feature-rich service, we know you're eager to begin sharing and collaborating. First we'd like to show you the Account Settings screen. It's a convenient place where you can review and update your billing information, make changes to your plan, and manage users. If you would like step-by-step instructions for changing information contained within the Account Settings screen, we also offer these tutorials:
