Share a link or file from a mobile phone or tablet

This article discusses two ways to give other people view-only access to files in your Dropbox: share a file or create a shared link.

Regardless of which you use, people can view, comment on, or download a copy of your file. But, they won't be able to edit the orginal file in your Dropbox. Note that not all platforms support both methods.

Share a file if you only want certain people to have access to your file.

Create a shared link if you want anyone to be able to click a link to access your file.

Click the dropdown below, and select the mobile device that you’d like to see instructions for.
