Remove Sign Up Pop-up when Sharing Link

Helpful | Level 6

When I share a link to a folder the person on the other end gets a full-screen Dropbox Sign-Up Popup.

 

There should be no obstacles to share my files with someone else. This is also a confusing user experience. The person on the other end thinks they have to sign up to access the files. Or I have to explain to them they can bypass it. 

 

What I'm suggesting is abolustely no upsell pop-ups or obstacles to share files with others. The link should go directly to the contents of the folder/file.

 

This is what it looks like on mobile when I share a folder with someone (I have a paid Dropbox account). Ugh.

Yes. I'm starting to consider OneDrive or GoogleDrive as a viable alternative. Since Dropbox has gone public, it's all about the "growth hacks", not about the user experience.  One of the biggest use cases for cloud storage is online collaboration, and Dropbox is throwing up too many roadblocks, with their sign in prompts and side bar slide outs.  Take me back to 2008 please.
