How do I make Dropbox ask for a password when I log in?

How do I make Dropbox ask for a password when I log in?

I do not need a password to log in to my Dropbox at work. I need to know how to set up the password so that it asks you to put in a password every time I open Dropbox. Does anyone know how to do this?

You can't. Dropbox only uses your password to link a device to your account. Once linked, Dropbox uses a secure token for authentication and no longer needs your password.

 

Secure your computer instead. If you set a password for the account you use on your computer, then no one else can use the computer as you, which also protects your Dropbox.

U can use a third-party file and folder lock software for Windows to protect with password your Dropbox folder. 😉
