Hello,

 

I downloaded JavaScript API to try out upload functionality. However, I also noticed using the same token that I generated I can use to see files. 

 

Is there a way to seperate a token to only do upload only and no reading folder/files. 

I don't want people accessing my dropbox account and downloading files - upload only.

Only is there a more secure way to do this in JavaScript, seems generating this token is not very secure.

 

Also I will be signing up for DropBox business, is there a way to restrict what type of files that are sent other than in JavaScript?

 

Thanks!

No, the Dropbox API doesn't offer a way to make an upload-only access token, but I'll be sure to pass this along as a feature request. Dropbox Business also doesn't offer a way to restrict the types of files you can upload.
Need more support?
