Using Dropbox Paper with Dropbox Business

If you're on a Dropbox Business team, most security controls you use with your Dropbox account are available when you use Dropbox Paper. However, some options are currently unavailable for Paper.


Dropbox customers can sign business associate agreements (BAAs) in order to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). Paper is not HIPAA-compliant, and Dropbox Business customers who have signed a BAA can’t use Paper.

Note: Dropbox doesn't currently offer HIPAA/HITECH support for Dropbox Paper. Learn more about compliance and Dropbox Business.
