Dropbox not showing up on iPad File Browser

New member | Level 2

On my iPad Pro, iOS 11.7, Dropbox icon is showing up on the desktop and works fine. However, it is not appearing in my Files Brower Locations window. Other cloud services are there, but no Dropbox. -??

Any ideas what is wrong?  Many thanks!

Re: Dropbox not showing up on iPad File Browser


Hey there @GaryJ - sorry to hear about this.

First of all, would you mind updating your device’s OS and seeing if the issue persists?

If you haven't done so already, could you also please update your Dropbox app to the latest version (currently 118.2)? This version may contain fixes relevant to your issue.

Should the issue persist, please attach a screenshot of the problem in your next response so I can have a visual too (this would help me send you the most appropriate next steps).
