Hey there @ldkbm74
 
In general, users see a “Request access” page when they open an invitation from an email address that’s associated with a Dropbox account that hasn’t been given access to the content in question. As such, they may request access from the owner. You can find more info about this in this article and this one.  
 
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, you can always contact our Support team for a more in-depth investigation of the matter.
 
However, if I’ve misunderstood your question, please don’t hesitate to let me know any additional info and I’ll make sure to get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks!

How do I block strangers from sending such requests or rest my privacy on Dropbox.

Hey again @ldkbm74
 
 
As per your query regarding “Request access”, if this is a shared folder or file, you can always unshare it so that it’s not accessible by others. 
 
Hope this helped to some extent!
