Password protect Paper app

Password protect Paper app

New member | Level 2

Why is there no way to password protect the Dropbox Paper mobil app? I mean are you kidding me? I really wanted to use this app to keep passwords so I could go from desktop to mobil and quickly look up a password or some other secret document but to my surprise, after initially setting up DB Paper, it opens right up to my save secret document. the Dropbox app has a 4-digit password, how freaking hard would it be to put that in the Paper app?

It would be great to add an option to share a link to a dropbox paper with password as we can do with files or folders in Dropbox.

This is a very nice feature request @harrysfil. Thanks for posting about this! 

Passwords add more control to your sharing. I am happy to forward this idea to our Paper team!

Also it would be great if we could emded a dropbox paper inside another dropbox paper (now only shows the link with + sign).

the embed paper idea or the password protect one?

Hey @harrysfil!

This updated status is for the original idea shared, which is for a password protected Paper app.

For embedding a Paper doc, when you hover over the blue text, you can see a preview of the Paper doc.

If this isn't exactly what you're looking for, I'd suggest submitting a new Paper idea here following Emma's top tips.

I hope this helps!

I wished Dropbox allowed password protection for files, folders and paper too.

I second this. It's a critical feature and I can't imagine adding a simple pin lock to the apps would be challenging. Why are we even discussing this?
