Site-packages in Shared Dropbox in Two Computers

I have two computers with Pycharm installed. The two computers have shared Dropbox. In both computers, I set up the directory of site-packages in the same shared Dropbox folder. Will this be a problem? In addition, if I install a package into site-packages in one computer, will the other computer have the same package installed automatically? Thank you.

This is not recommended setup and will likely cause issues.

More correct way is to setup each computer with a local copy of libraries, and keep them consistent with python tools like requirements file, pipenv, e.t.c
