Reactivating Your Box Account

If you meet the set of criteria below, in most cases you can easily reactivate your account online.

  • You have canceled online within the past 120 days (can be "Canceled" or "pending deactivation")
  • You are the administrator of your account
  • You purchased a business account plan (Starter, Business, Business Plus, Business Plus Governance, Enterprise, Enterprise Governance)


How to Reactivate your Account


  1. Go to the reactivation page and enter in the email that was tied to your original Box account.
  2. If your account was eligible for reactivation, then you will be redirected to the confirmation page. (You will receive an error message on the reactivations page if you were not eligible. Please contact the Billing team if you received an error).

  4. Open the reactivation email and confirm reactivation. You will reactivate with the previous active subscription (which includes number of seats, plan, and previous payment method).
