Support for iOS

Hi everybody,


I am upgrading my iOS app to Dropbox 2.

In the documentation I read:


  • Safari view controller auth (iOS only): This launches a SFSafariViewController to facillitate the auth flow. This is desirable because it is safer for the end-user, and pre-existing session data can be used to avoid requiring the user to re-enter their Dropbox credentials.

This type of authentication is desirable but how can force to authenticate in this way. In my device there also is the Dropbox application and automatically starts the authentication via Dropbox app. How can I forxe the Safari authentication?

Many thanks and bye,

Re: Support for iOS

There isn't an option for forcing this flow to be used, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.
We love to learn from the educators who use Dropbox. Whether you teach kids, teens, adults or a combination of all three, we want to know what apps and integrations you use with Dropbox to help with teaching. Which of the ones below is your favorite, or most used tool?
