Doubt about loading a folder.

Explorer | Level 4

Regards.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I have a small (and maybe silly) doubt that I hope you can clarify.

I don't use Dropbox a lot, just to share things with people at work when the files weigh a lot, so I'm not very familiar with its use.

My question is that today I shared a folder that contained several files and when I loaded it I get this message:

Do you want to upload a file to this website?

All "folder name" files will be uploaded. Perform this action only if you trust the website.

And it gives the option of uploading or canceling.

I had never had this message before uploading a file, although it is true that I had only shared individual files, never a folder.

I want to know if this is a genuine dropbox security request or what's up.

Thanks beforehand for your attention.

P.D .: Sorry for my English.

Sounds more like a message from your web browser, and not from Dropbox, asking you if you trust Dropbox. Your browser is likely protecting you from uploading to a website inadvertently.
