Invalid access token

Invalid access token

I'm creating a python kivy app which uploads one file to my dropbox and I want to deploy that app on android. When I run my python app on my pc, everything works fine. I manage to upload the file to my dropbox account using access token as intended. When I deploy the app on android using buildozer, I'm getting AuthError('invalid_access_token'). I'm totally new to all of this, but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Also, after I run my app on android and get the error, the access token no longer works when the app is run on pc (getting the same error on pc as well). What could go wrong after deploying it on android?

By default, Dropbox API access tokens for your app(s) don't become invalid and yield 'invalid_access_token' by themselves, but there a number of different ways that a Dropbox API access token can become invalid, including:
Please review the above possibilities for information on why your tokens may be invalid. Let me know if none of these seem to apply though.

Hi Greg,

I found the issue. It was due to publicly sharing on GitHub. Thanks for helping.
