Make A Dropbox QR Code

We’ve just released a new data type that allows you to make a QR code that links to a Dropbox file or folder.

With the new “Share Link” feature on Dropbox you no longer need to create a Public Folder to share files. Just create the link, add it to a QR code, and you can instantly share Dropbox files with anyone, even non-Dropbox users, simply by them scanning the QR code.

Here’s how to use it.

Create A Dropbox Shared Link

  1. Sign in to your Dropbox account.
  2. Click on the file you want to share.
  3. Select “Share Link” from the action bar across the top
  4. A pop-up appears – click on “Get Link”
  5. You will then be shown a preview of your file. Copy the link from your browser’s address bar to use when you create your QR code (below).
