Browser access when app not available

Level 3

I'm in a ukulele group, mainly retired folk. We've started sharing songs via Dropbox but some cannot get the app version for iOS 9 to load on their older iPads.

Can they access Dropbox via their browser without an app?

Re: Browser access when app not available


Hey there (@Clutha), thanks for choosing Dropbox! I’m quickly pinging you back to confirm that while your friends would need to update to iOS 10 or later if they’d like to use our mobile app, they should be able to browse through their file structure normally on their preferred browser.

 I hope that this is helpful to you & happy 🎼 sharing ahead!

Yes, they can sign-in to Dropbox via the browser, but the functionality will be limited compared to the app.

Can you give any details of what our non Dropbox app users will not be able to do when getting access via their browsers?
