How can you sign in to the Dropbox Paper mobile app if you're using Dropbox via a Google account?

Helpful | Level 5

The Dropbox Paper iOS app does not have a login via Google option. How am I supposed to log in?

Hello there @teauxfu, I hope you're having a good day so far!

 

Using the Sign in with Google option allows you to use your Google account to sign into Dropbox. However, you can also set a Dropbox password too for your account.

 

You can set a Dropbox password by requesting a password reset link from here to the email linked with your account. From the reset link you can set a password to sign into Dropbox directly.

 

This won't prevent you from using the Google option to sign in at all, but it gives you the option to either sign in with your Google account credentials or by using the new Dropbox password you set too.

 

Let me know if that helps!

Weird work-around, but does indeed work! Thanks. The app seems great so far and I'm eagerly awaiting dark mode functionality
