Hey @gchristo27, thanks for posting your idea here!

Could you clarify exactly if you're referring to the web or the mobile app?

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

Hi Lusil,

 

I'm referring to the mobile app for android devices. Autofill already works with the web browser extension and Apple mobile devices but not Android.

Thanks for clarifying that and for sharing your idea with us, @gchristo27

I'll leave this thread open and, in the meantime, give us another nudge if you have any other questions or thoughts for us. 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!

You provide instructions on setting up autofill on Android.  I can't get it to work. If it doesn't yet work, why do you provide instructions?

Thanks for joining us on this thread, @JP6000.

Could you clarify if you're referring to the mobile app or the extension?

If you're getting any error messages, a screenshot would be super helpful.

Thought it was just me. I have the dropbox passwords app on my android phone. Autofill works fine on my laptop largely.

 

Despite multiple tries can't get the autofill to work on android.

Also the password app itself never asks for my pin number to get in to it on my android phone. That is it is permanently unlocked. On my laptop after a few mins have to complete pin so works fine there.

 

To be honest I am slightly dubious of the security of dropbox passwords. I only keep ones on there that it wouldn't be a disaster if compromised. Never financial sites .

Hey @sng2, thanks for nudging us here. 

If you're still having trouble with autofill on your mobile app, could you make sure that you're running the latest version of the app and the OS?

Android app. Autofill does not work.

 

Settings does not work. Provides a message " This feature does not work yet" . Can't do a screen capture with the message.

Agree. Appauling security for the App on on Android. This is negligent on Dropbox to issue and promote this app for increased security when the app itself  is faitilly flawed.
