I'm trying to share some files with a friend who does not have a dropbox account. He lives in a rural area, has limited internet access through his Android mobile device, and does not want to install the app. How can he download from the shared folder link I sent to him via a browser on his phone without having to install the app?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If the device supports it, there's a Direct Download option under the elipsis (three dots ... ) in the upper-right corner of the page.
When the GO TO FOLDER link is tapped from the email under Andriod, a page comes up saying YOU MUST INSTALL THE APP. There's no option for direct download under the elepsis. Perhaps if I shared each file individually rather than the folder they're in...?
Thanks, emailing share links for the files individually worked and my friend was able to download them w/o installing anything.
