Bonjour !

I get some kind of message on my Dropbox Icone, I never had before, for years...

This is a "1" over a red disk, itself on the Dropbox Icone, which seems to incate some king of message avaible.

But I do not find anything.

Anybody to tell me its meaning ?

Thanks

It means you have a new notification. Open the Dropbox app and look for the Bell icon.

I have the same issued my Dropbox Icon has a number 1 on it in a little red box. When I open the app I can't find any notifications?? Is there any way I can remove the number?

Hey @marbar1, Happy Tuesday! 

Can you send me a screenshot of what you see when you click on the icon in your notification area?

Make sure none of your personal info is visible there.

Thanks for this @marbar1

Can you show me what you see when you click on the icon itself? 

 

You should be able to see a new notification when clicking on it, right?

Hi again,

 

I just opened it and noticed a statement at the top of the page. It didn't have an icon on it or anything but when I opened it the notification disappeared so that must have been it. 

 

Thanks for your help,

 

Marie
