I can login without using my password, is this secure

Helpful | Level 5

When I go to the Dropbox website and click on Dropbox login, without my asking for my password  it comes up with all my files.

This means anyone who uses my laptop can acces my Dropbox files, without my knowedge.

Hi there

 

Perhaps you have a password manager installed or using cached (stored/saved) passwords in your browser? Mine (Firefox) does the same.

Hi @DBAug2020, thanks for joining the Community!

 

It sounds like your browser has saved the password for your Dropbox login, so accessing the site would automatically login to the account.

 

If you want to prevent this, try logging off the site, and disable this option in your browser or password manager.

 

Hope this helps!
