How to get Dropbox free lifetime 16GB (32 signups) referrals by yourself?

Post by tong »

Once you invite your friends to join Dropbox, you can check the status of your referrals from the Referral Status tab of your account settings. There are four different referral statuses:
  • Invited means that your friend has been invited to use Dropbox but hasn't registered or installed the desktop application yet.
  • Joined means that they have registered but not yet installed the Dropbox desktop application.
  • Completed means that your friend has successfully installed the Dropbox desktop application and both of you have been credited your bonus space (500MB).
  • Ineligible means that the recipient is ineligible for the referral program. Either they have already registered an account with Dropbox or are attempting to register using the same computer as you.

Dropbox check ineligible by mac address only. You need to spoof (clone) MAC address. No need to change the IP address. This is possible and easy by running Ubuntu in VMwave. You don't need to install Ubuntu, just download the ubuntu-11.10-desktop-i386.iso and run it in VMware.

I won't tell you how to use VMware but I will teach how to spoof (clone) MAC address. In the Ubuntu boot screen, choose "Try Ubuntu".

06.jpg 07.jpg snap5046.png - The first 2 HEX should be even number.
- If the new mac address is not activated, click the switch ON -> OFF -> ON.
- You have to change the MAC address before signup the new Dropbox account!
- You can change hostname by command "sudo hostname new_name" before signup the new Dropbox account!
- Do not install Dropbox before signup the new Dropbox account!
- Go to your fake referral post/article. Click referral link and signup new account.
- VMware have the Snapshot function which you can return to the same state repeatedly.

Updated NOV 2020

- We need to verify in email.
