Community Login Password

Community Login Password

Question about Dropbox passwords, both the desktop app and for the online Dropbox Community. When installing Dropbox on a new computer, part of the process includes logging into your Dropbox account. User name and password. When you want to login to the online (this site) Dropbox Community, is that password suppose to be the same as your account password. I just discovered (recently changed password managers) that both my passwords (desktop app & online community) are the same.

Yes. You sign in to the Community using your Dropbox credentials; the email address and password that you use to sign in to Dropbox. If you're already signed in to the Dropbox website, when you visit the Community and click on Sign In you will automatically be signed in with your Dropbox account.
