Explorer | Level 3

Hi!

I sign in with Google, but i want to change it. I want sign in with the email, how?

I already tried to sign in with the email acount, but doesn't work. Only works with "sign in with google"!!!

sign in with google works automatic, it submits your information and logs you in dropbox account.

if you want you can manually sign up with your username and password, you can do that. After you create your account, then you can login. 

two different things sign or login, but sign with google does both things at once for you.

hope this make sense to you, but this is how it works.

Thanks for the reply. Actually I just wanted to separate things for security reasons. I fear that if someone accesses my google account they can access my Dropbox. I could create a new one but I don’t want to lose the advantages I have now.
Thank you again

Hi there @panogap; how are you today?

 

In this case, you can try dis-connecting (or remove access from) Dropbox through your Google account and then reset your password -if needed- upon your next login. 

 

Let me know if this did the trick for you and happy Friday!
