By default, your Box account will be set to automatically accept incoming collaboration invitations. This means that when someone invites you to collaborate on a folder, your account will automatically accept this invitation and you will receive an email notification alerting you of the invitation and acceptance.
If you would prefer to manually accept/reject incoming collaboration invitations, you can disable this setting on your account by following these steps:
- From within your Box account, click on the gear icon in the upper right hand corner and select “Account Settings”
- Under the “Content and Sharing” tab, scroll down until you see a section titled “Collaborating on Content”
- Uncheck the box marked “Automatically accept incoming collaboration invitations”
- Click “Save” to confirm this change
