Types of Shared Links

Questions about the difference between an Open, @Your Company, and Collaborator Only shared links?
We’ve got answers!

Who can access the shared link?

Open: Anyone with the link and no Box login is required. The recipient does not need a Box account.

@Your Company: Users with a company email address as well as users external to your organization who have access to a specified folder via collaborator rights. In either case, the recipient must have a verified Box account.
Please note that external users will only be granted access via a shared link to the folders of which they have existing collaborator rights.

Collaborator Only: Only users who have been invited to the folder. Please note that collaborators already have access to their content, but shared links can easily direct a user to a specific file or folder.
