I am trying to set up an account and its asking me for a 3rd party app or a permission to allow. 

Not sure what this is as it is all new to me and where am I to access this to allow on muy computer.

Anyone have suggestions as to what one to use the best?

Re: 3rd party

Hi there, just for clarification, are you trying to setup a Dropbox account for the first time? 
Are you trying to access another app or program that could link to Dropbox, say for example Microsoft Office Online?
A screenshot of the prompt you’re getting would help us greatly!
