Why do I need to join a team to download a shared link?

My client sent me a link to download an image. Why cant I just click the link and download the image? Drop Box wants me to either merge the image into a team folder or create a new account. No other option.

I was once so simple.......

Re: Link to download

If this is a shared link, you should be able to access the file without the need of an account. For this reason, could you please send me a screenshot (omitting personal info) so as to have a better understanding of what you’re seeing? 
Thanks in advance!
