Can't delete account because signed-in with Google and I don't have a password!

Can't delete account because signed-in with Google and I don't have a password!

Amazing design, folks at Dropbox! I can't delete my account because I signed up with Google and I don't have a password! But the UI requires that I enter a password. Since I don't have a separate password - I can't delete the account! Whoever designed this idiocy...

🙂 As you have "signed up with Google", you have already your google account (including username and password) and you don't need additional password. You just need to authenticate yourself some how (either using email and password or using external authority - like Google; not both) and you are able to do whatever you want with your account, including account deletion. 😉 That's it.
