Getting back into Dropbox without Google

New member | Level 2

I’ve had a basic Dropbox account for two or three years and have exchanged files between my desktop PC and iPad freely and without difiiculty.  I’ve just purchased a new iPad and of course deleted my passwords and cookies from the old device and entered them, as needed, on the new iPad.  I’m now being asked to sign in with Google, which I’ve never had to do before.  I’m told that my password for Gmail is incorrect so I’ve created a new one and still can’t get back into Dropbox to review a specific file.  I need some help here.  Thanks.

Re: Getting back into Dropbox without Google


Hey there @Mohun3 - sorry to hear about this.

My first thought on this, based on your description, is that you created a new account under another email address other than the one you originally used. 

Could you review the following article and let me know what you find?
