I have been using Dropbox without 2FA for years but my iPhone had to be restored and I am now not able to use Dropbox unless I use 2FA.
The problem I have with Two-factor is that I do a lot of travelling and change SIMs to local ones. This means I cannot get a text code and I also cannot scan Google since I only have one device.
Can someone tell me what I can do? Is there a way of getting it back without 2FA? I only have recipes on it for work.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You have to scan the QR code only once when seting up Authy. You can setup the 2FA using a desktop browser before travelling. Next time you need to login, open Authy and copy the 6 digit number and enter in the Dropbox 2FA login prompt. Are you not using the Dropbox app in your iPhone? In that case you don't have to login every single time.
Hey peeps, just jumping in here!
Are you able to access your account @Megabyte?
If so, you can disable 2FA from your account settings with the steps outlined here.
I hope this helps!
Thanks for the additional info @Megabyte!
If you created your Dropbox account through the "Sign in with Apple" option, then you can create a Dropbox password for your account from your account settings page here.
Setting a Dropbox password will allow you to use either option to sign in. To use your Dropbox password, you would just sign in by entering your credentials under the "Sign in with..." options.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
