Thanks! That's helpful. Did you make any changes to your app's configuration on the App Console recently, perhaps accidentally?

Specifically, please check that your have "Allow implicit grant" set to "Allow" on the app's page on the App Console, since you do need that for the app authorization flow used by the Java SDK. If it's set to "Disallow", switch it to "Allow" and try again, and let me know if that doesn't help.

I'll be happy to help with any issues you're having with the Dropbox API, but I'll need some more information. Please reply with:

  • the full and exact text of the error/any unexpected output; a screenshot is ok if that's easier
  • the steps to reproduce the proble, including the relevant code snippet(s) that are failing

My app was working fine for the las couple of months, and its easy to implement Dropbox in Android so i dont understand why the error

For start login:

Auth.startOAuth2Authentication(context, <App key>)


and in manifest:

<activity
            android:name="com.dropbox.core.android.AuthActivity"
            android:configChanges="orientation|keyboard"
            android:launchMode="singleTask">
            <intent-filter>
                <data android:scheme="db-<App key>"/>

                <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW"/>

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE"/>
                <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT"/>
            </intent-filter>
</activity>
