Sharing files in Vault with non-member?

Sharing files in Vault with non-member?

Hello!

I am hoping to set up continued access for a non-member to a folder inside my Vault. Does anyone know if this is possible? And if so, what would be the best way to go about it?  Thank you so much for any advice!!

Hi Walter! Thank you for your response! But there are two problems with that solution -- first, to be a trusted contact someone needs to be a Dropbox member, which my contact is not, and second, it seems the contacts can't view what's in the vault but only download the whole contents which is also not an option for my contact. Is there another option for safeguarding a particular file with designated password?   Thanks so much!

You could use shared links to the files you'd like to share and password protect those links as an extra security layer @KWETAL

Let me know if that works for you!
