Switch login to use Google

Switch login to use Google

Gil K.
New member | Level 1

When I created my Dropbox account, I did NOT use Google to create the account. Now I see a "Sign up with Google" option. If there is a way that I can use Google's single-sign-on feature and avoid one more login, I'd like to do that. How do I switch?

I'm having the same issue! I have linked my gmail to Dropbox years ago but when i try to login using Google auth, it says the email is already used.

 

We need a way to link the existing Dropbox account with Google's auth system.

You can change the personal email to gmail from the settings.

I have the same question. Sign in with Google works. I haven't tested if my old username and password still work or not. I'll try it later today.

There is no way to prevent the old log in method from working. Both the Google log in and logging in with your email address and password will always be available.
