BlokSec can be configured to support passwordless login to Dropbox.

The BlokSec ↔️ Dropbox integration enables authentication via the SAML protocol. Configuration involves a few simple steps on both the BlokSec admin UI and the Dropbox admin console.

  2. On the main dashboard, click the Add Application drop-down and select Create From Template, and select Dropbox

    • Assertion Consumer Service:

    • Name ID Format: EmailAddress (keep default value of EmailAddress)

  4. Click Submit to save the configuration
