There is something I have always wanted to see in Dropbox - the ability to give apps access to my public Dropbox files by default, with only one or two key apps being able to view both public and private sections.
There are some apps that have a limited applicaion (e-signing, etc.) and they are made in other countries. It may say that they only access Dropbox while I am using them, or indicate it is only in the files that I am working on, but I feel it is a security risk. How do I know they don't automatically harvest everything? Do you restrict them in any way, to only the files I am actively working with, and only when I am actively using the app? I have never seen any discussion of this.
I like the convenience of having more sensitive data available across all my devices, but would like to limit that to the one or two apps that I trust the most (unless you have enabled protections such as described above).
So, the suggestion is; we segment our folders under Private or Public. Let current app deverlopers have full access for the near term, with the realization that we will begin to select against them if they don't change their apps to support split access permission.
