Hello!

I'm trying set up dropbox in my new laptop.

However I couldn't complete a step which clicking "Allow" in the Security & Privacy in my Macbook pro.

It doesn't show up after I click "Open Preferences" like the instruction in 

https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/sync-uploads/filesystem-integration#blocked
(Please see the attached screenshot.)

May I know how can I make it show and complete setting up the smart sync?

 

 

This is what I can see nowThis is what I can see now

Thank you

Hey @happycylo, thanks for posting on our Community!

Can you please let me know if you've installed the desktop app with admin privileges on this computer?

If you did, could you reboot your computer and let me know if this persists?

Thanks!
