Create a new Dropbox account using Sign in with Apple (iPhone only)

To create a new Dropbox account using Sign in with Apple:

  1. Open the Dropbox iOS app.
  2. Tap Sign in with Apple.
  3. Select either Share My Email or Hide My Email and tap Continue.
    • Share My Email will share your email address with Dropbox
    • Hide My Email will hide your email address from Dropbox
  4. Tap Continue.

If your app crashes mid-sign up, follow these instructions to complete the sign up process.

What is the Hide My Email option?

Apple allows you to sign up for third-party sites like Dropbox without sharing your email address using the Hide My Email feature. If you choose to enable Hide My Email when you create a new Dropbox account, Apple will generate a random email address using the domain @privaterelay.appleid.com. Anything sent to that email address will automatically be forwarded to the email address associated with your Apple ID. However, this means that if you disable email forwarding, you won’t be able to receive emails from Dropbox.

Can I use Sign in with Apple with a Dropbox Business account?

No, not at this time.
