How Do I Join a Dropbox Shared Folder I've been Invited to?

Dropbox allows you to share a photo or video folder with others. You can send invitation to others to view your folder or vice versa. If someone has invited you to a shared folder, then you can join it by accepting the invitation. To learn how to accept a shared folder invitation, and how to request access to a shared folder, check out the steps below.

Here are the steps to Accept a Shared Folder Invitation:

  1. Go to & sign in to your account.
  2. Once you have signed in to your account, click "Sharing" located at the sidebar on the left.
