Dropbox users with a Google email address can use their Gmail to sign in directly to their account.
Until now, Dropbox users could only use the service authentication system to create an account, connect, and use applications, decktop clents or the Web version.
Since today, the service performs authentication using Google accounts as well. This of course means that your connection to your Dropbox account can be done in two ways.
Users who are new to Dropbοx can simply sign up for the service using their Google account. This simplifies registration, as there is no need to set a password for the account.
You may be wondering what happens to Dropbox users who use an e-mail from a different email provider to view their Dropbox account.
If you are one of them you will not see it directly. First you need to change your Dropbox account with your email address.
Let's see how it works
Open the address https://www.dropbox.com/account/security#profile in the web browser of your choice.
You will need to log in to your old account.
Then look for the option: "change e-mail" in the personal e-mail tab on the main page of the profile.
Follow the steps outlined to change your address to one of Google.
Of course, you'll need an address from Gmail as you'll need confirmation. That's it.
The first time you try to sign in, you will be asked to add an account. Select your Gmail account on the page that opens, or click the account to add the email if it does not exist on the page.
