- When you are adding Dropbox to MultCloud, you do not need to enter your Dropbox account's username and password because the authorization system of MultCloud is based on OAuth, which is a standard authorization framework that enables third party applications to build up a connection to HTTPS services without username and password required. However, there are exceptions. For example: SugarSync, WebDav and FTP, when you are adding them to MultCloud, which need you to enter the email address and password of these accounts.
