  1. Hi, can you confirm that once this process has been followed, when you go back into your DropBox account and share the now password protected file that the recipient can view the file but can't download it unless they've been given the password? I want to be able to share a file so the person can view but not copy/download it….any tips much appreciated!

  2. i want to be able to share a file on my website. i can upload videos and images but not files (webnode). i have a google drive account, tried that, now a dropbox account, and i'm trying to get familiar with its features. silly me, i'm trying to figure out how to make this file donloadable but read-only. it's an Excel file, i used to do this all the time! for some reason, i can only save it as read-only, which i think users can override and save changes to the file in dropbox, or encrypt with a password, which defeats the whole purpose because i want the file to be downloadable by anyone with internet access. thank you for the video!
