Web access to Dropbox via google account requires" "See and make a copy of your Google Contacts".

Explorer | Level 3

Someone wants to share some files with my google account via their dropbox account. To access the files, I have to sign in to dropbox web with my google account, and allow dropbox to: "See and make a copy of your Google Contacts"

It is totally unacceptabe that to see a file someone shared with me, I have to share all my contacts to dropbox, and there is no option to say no. 

I told the user to share via onedrive or google drive instead.  Problem solved.

Hi @asdfasdf1, we appreciate the feedback.

This is a default permission, however, you can delete the automatically added contacts using these steps.

Additionally, you don’t need to sign into the Dropbox site using Google Sign In, you can create a Dropbox account using your Gmail address.

I hope this helps to clarify matters!
