Dropbox share/permission error

Dropbox share/permission error

Help! I shared a link to my resume from dropbox...emailed it to myself in hotmail...checked it and emailed it from there to an agency. However, when I click on the link in my 'sent' email, I can see the resume, but then I can also click a back arrow and view EVERYTHING else in my Dropbox account!! Will the receiver also be able to do this????

No. You're only seeing that because you're logged in to your account in the same browser. Log out of your Dropbox account, or use another browser (or a private browsing session) to test a shared link as others will see it. They can only see the specific item you linked to.
