Why am I being asked to turn on accessibility on my new Mac computer?

Why am I being asked to turn on accessibility on my new Mac computer?

Good Morning, I have a new computer and keep getting this message.  I read the "Learn More" page and I need further information.  I would like to see "Dropbox" on the side bar of my computer so I can easily access my account when I want to store files to Dropbox and not just on my computer but I don't need Dropbox to do anything else.  I do not use it with a team.  So, I don't want to have Dropbox accessing my whole computer and it seems like this is what the error code might be referencing.  Sorry for the really elementary question but any help you can provide would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Thanks for posting your question here, @Worksalot

 

In regards to the accessibility notification you keep receiving, this is just a setting by Apple which allows apps on your Mac to interact with other apps. For more info, you can check out this Help Center article.

 

Also, regarding the first part of your post, do you mean that you’re having trouble setting up your Dropbox app and easily accessing the local Dropbox folder from your Finder? I’d just like to make sure everything’s working properly on your device. 

 

Keep me posted.
