unable to upload files to Dropbox due to security concerns

unable to upload files to Dropbox due to security concerns

Marc N.2
Explorer | Level 4

I designed an android app that enables users to input data and take photos and export them using the share option. When sharing the files and photos using dropbox, it comes up with an error message stating 'security concerns'.

I have looked at previous posts and could not find a solution to this problem. 

I can add photos and files from other apps such as the photo gallery but not from my custom made app.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hey @Marc N.2, thanks for your post!

Can you please clarify if this is message you're getting is a public message or a private 'console' message via the app? Or an error log?

A screenshot of the error would also be really helpful.

Thanks!

Hello,

below are 2 screenshots of the error notification and message on my Android phone.

The message appears as part of the Dropbox app.

Thanks

Thanks for the screenshot, Marc, and happy Monday!

Can you please check your connected apps page, to see if your app is connected to your Dropbox account?

Hi, the app I designed is not connected to Dropbox. I designed it 4 years ago and it has never been a problem. Does it need to be connected and if so, how do I connect it? To give more info, my app is NOT available on the app store.
Thanks
Marc
