PLEASE READ most recent message thread. On Apple devices (phone & iPad) this is resolved by updating these devices to IOS 14.4

On my IPad. If I try to open a Word document from Dropbox it won't open. Says in won't decrypt. If I go through the Word icon and then search through to the document of Dropbox it will open. The document has a password but using this makes no difference. This did not used to happen. How do I get around this problem. Please.

I hope you're well today @Everitt!

We had some similar reports, and many noted that updating to the latest iOS version resolved this for them here.

Can you check if you have any pending OS updates to see if that does the trick?
