View-only access to your work

Quickly share a copy of your work with others, even if they don't have a Dropbox account.

Shared links are perfect for sending work to external partners or even other people on your team. They're like email attachments, but simpler and without the file-size limit.

Key points:

  • Recipients don't need a Dropbox account and they'll get an instant preview of the linked file or folder through their browser.
  • You can even give your links passwords and expiration dates to control who's able to access them.
  • Links are dynamic, which means that whenever they're accessed online they link to the most current version of your file or folder. No need to keep re-sending links as you update your work!
  • They can still download and edit a copy of the files you share, but they never access or edit your original work.
