How can I stop Dropbox sharing my personal data with Facebook

How can I stop Dropbox sharing my personal data with Facebook

Any ideas guys if there is an option to stop dropbox selling your personal data.  I noticed in my Facebook account that my data was submitted there - I think this was  done via IOS app.

Hi @User_MG, thanks for posting on the Community!

It's possible that you might have connected Dropbox to Facebook using an integration in the past. 

You can check if it's still linked via Dropbox by checking this page on your account.

Keep me updated with any progress!

Many thanks for your reply Jay.

Link you suggested does no show any connected apps.

If that's the case, then it isn't linked to Dropbox in the system. 

What happens if you try to disconnect it via the Facebook interface?

Not sure what do you mean Jay - I never logged into Dropbox via Facebook,  so not sure how could I disconnect it from there.

Could you clarify your original query then, on how your Dropbox data is on Facebook? Where are you seeing this info?

Any screenshots would be helpful!

Nope, this is what you get on Safari running on the latest MACOS.  Facebook entry I posted was collected via IOS application.

Probably Facebook will get more submissions from dropbox in a day or two.  

Who's talking
