There are many great ways to use Box:
- Leave your flash drive at home. Your files are stored securely in the cloud so that you can access them anywhere, at any time.
- Send big files fast. Have a file that's too big to email? Upload it to Box and share it with a link, or with a collaboration invitation.
- Collaborate on a project. Need to work on a group project? With Box, everyone can view and edit files in one location. Add comments right alongside the files. Assign tasks with due dates. Receive real-time updates when someone edits or comments on a document. View previous versions of files. Box is a more efficient way to manage group work because it puts an end to "reply all" email chains and endless file attachments.
- Store it all and stay organized. You don't have to share files on Box. You can just use it as your own personal storage space. Box makes it easy to find everything you store. Organize files into folders, just like you do on your computer. Search for specific text within your files. Tag your files with keywords so that you can quickly find what you need.
Note: Box uses state-of-the-art technology and industry best practices for data encryption during transit to and from the Box cloud, as well as while stored within Box. However, some types of data should not be stored on Box.
