OneDrive Best Practices


What are some best practices to keep in mind when using OneDrive?


  • OneDrive usage must be consistent with all relevant BGSU policies, including but not limited to the BGSU IT Policy and Data Use Policy
  • OneDrive must not be used to share sensitive data such as Social Security Numbers, Driver’s License Numbers, Personal Financial Account Information, and Personal Health Information 

  • Users must be sure to only share files with people authorized to view the data 

  • Users must make sure any mobile devices that connect to OneDrive are protected from unauthorized access 

  • OneDrive is the supported individual file sharing solution for faculty and staff at BGSU.  The use of DropBox, Google Drive and other solutions may not conform to the security standards and legal requirements of OneDrive and should be discontinued immediately
