Comparing enterprise and free Box accounts

On this page:

Free personal Box accounts

Free Box accounts, available to the public, are not related to the enterprise Box service at IU. Anyone can have a free personal Box account; if you choose to create one, use a non-IU email address and password of your choice.

You can share files from your personal account to your enterprise account, being sure to follow appropriate security guidelines:

Enterprise Box accounts

Enterprise Box accounts are available to all current students, faculty, and staff.

Important: Box at Indiana University is a flexible storage service and collaboration tool that is appropriate for use with personal files and institutional information classified as "Public" or "University-internal". However, Box is not acceptable for storing or sharing any institutional data classified as "Restricted" or "Critical", including electronic protected health information (ePHI) regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
