Dropbox Plus - Shared Linked Folder with Password Turned On

Dropbox Plus - Shared Linked Folder with Password Turned On

When I copy the link and test to confirm a password is required, the folder opens with access to everything without a password being entered.  Is this because Dropbox Plus does not send links password protected?

 

For the folder I would like to share, I have selected Share > Create a Link > Link Settings > People with Password > I Entered a Password > Expiration On > Selected a Date > Save.

I cleared both browsers of their histories.  I then copied the link from one browser into another and voila.  I was asked for a password.  Thank you for your assistance.

Hey @Gallatin, thanks for reaching out today!

 

Are you perhaps opening the link, while logged in to your account? This wouldn't require you to enter the password. 

 

Can you open it from a different browser or a private browsing window instead, to see how that goes?

 

Keep me posted.
