Can the Synology Dropbox app use two-step verification?

Level 4

Hello --  WIth NAS hardware like Syslogoy Is the a package/app called cloud sync to 

connect to dropbox.  How would that connection work if I have 2 step authorization turned on  in dropbox?  Does dropbox.com let me generate a token that will bystep the  2 step process? Thanks

Hi Frank, since the app Synology uses is a third party application, we’re not sure how it would work with two-step verification.
 
However, since two-step verification is needed when logging into your account, and not for normal syncing (which would be quite an inconvenience), most likely it won’t be required. 
 
I’d check with Synology to see if there are any restrictions in this regard.
 
Hope this info helps!

Hello -- Thanks for the info --- 

I know there is a dropbox API --- might you know if there is a call in the API that will 

make a connection and skip the 2 step verify? 

This sort of seems like an natural option .... Hotmail/outlook.com lets me set up a 

token so gmail can sign on to my account and read my mail

There are some authentication methods in the API section here.
 
Most likely the app uses one of them to access Dropbox.
