Password for Link on File or Folder not working

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I go to share and select that only people with password can open and then make password and share from gmail to another email I have - and it appears I can just open without a password.

Before I go live I would like to make sure this works.  What am I missing?

You're already logged into the Dropbox website with your account while you're testing the link, so naturally it would open without a password. Use a different browser (one where you're not already logged into Dropbox) or an Incognito/Private window to test the link.
