Am I signed into Dropbox when I sign into Yahoo?

Am I signed into Dropbox when I sign into Yahoo?

Explorer | Level 3

My drop box is synced to my yahoo account. When I sign in to yahoo, am I automatically signed in to dropbox? Will it show under security on dropbox that I've logged in even if I really haven't?

Re: Yahoo sign in dropbox sign in?

Hey there @Ann Therese, I hope you're having a good day so far!

 

Could you just clarify for me what you mean when you say that Dropbox is synced to your Yahoo account? Did you add Yahoo as a connected app in Dropbox, or perhaps you're using your Yahoo email for your Dropbox account?

 

Either way, the only way to sign into Dropbox would be by directly signing into your Dropbox account rather than through another app. This would apply even if you use a Single Sign On (SSO) option like "Sign in with Google".

 

While SSO will allow you to sign in using the credentials of another app, you'll still need to navigate to Dropbox to sign in with the SSO.

 

I hope this info helps, but do keep me posted!

To clarify, when I go to "securituy" and then to "settings" and I see under the "these devices are linked to your personal account" and I see a device with a locataion and date, does thta mean that the person has logged into my dropbox or that he is just on the interneet. I need to know if this is intentional or just happening because he is linked to my account so when he is on the internet - it looks like he's in my dropbox but he's not.
