Does Dropbox 2 factor authentication allow the creation of APP PASSWORDS (app-specific passwords)?

Thank you for the additional information on this one @Edlasseigne - much appreciated. 

Unfortunately, this setup may not meet the minimum requirements for the Dropbox application to run properly as we don't currently support a native application for printers.

You can review our recommended minimum requirements on this Help Center article

Note that if you're connecting Dropbox with your printer using a 3rd party app or service, your best bet at this point would be to reach out and ask them about this directly. 

I hope this information helps at some extent and keep me posted on your progress. 

Thanks!

Hey there @Edlasseigne - how are you today?

Could you please elaborate on what exactly are you trying to accompish or achieve eventually and how would 2 step authentication be a part of that process? 

Apologies for asking, I just want to make sure we're on the same page here so as to send you the most appropriate information.

Thanks in advance for your reply Ed!

Some apps on some devices aren't set up to allow codes for 2-factor authentication to by entered after the user's password. Such as the Dropbox app on my new HP printer. Most software companies allow the creation of app-specific passwords to use INSTEAD of your main password, and app passwords work WITHOUT authentication codes. But the Dropbox security section on 2-factor authentication says nothing about app passwords.
