How to give people view-only access to your Dropbox files on Android phone?

Sharing your Dropbox files with others is easy. There are two ways to share or give people view-only access. One, via a share link to the Dropbox file and the other by sending the Dropbox file itself. If you want to give people view-only access to your Dropbox files from an Android device, follow the process below:


Share a Dropbox file:
  1. Navigate to the file or folder you want to share, then tap the downward arrow to the right of the file or folder name.
  2. Tap Share.
  3. Enter the name or email address of the people who need access to your files.
  4. Under These people, choose 'Can view'.
  5. Add a message about the files and tap Send.
Share a link to your DropBox File:
  1. Navigate to the file or folder you want to share, then tap the downward arrow to the right of the file or folder name.
  2. Tap Share.
  3. Tap Create a link.
    - If a link was already shared to this file or folder, tap 'Share' next to 'Anyone with the link can view'.
  4. You’ll see a menu of apps, such as email and text, that you can choose from to send your file. Select the app you'd like to use and Dropbox will paste the link into the app.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!

PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.

It's AWESOME!! I have tens of thousands of pictures...and they are now successfully uploaded to SmugMug, where they are safely backed up, and I can edit and organize them. If you are hesitating about using PicBackMan, hesitate no longer...try it...and you'll be glad you did!!
