Can I set an expiration date on links to Box files and folders?

Box shared links are URLs that take any recipient directly to the folder or file they need, without giving access to any other part of your account. Unlike standard collaboration – users accessing content via shared links have read-only access to the current version and will not be able to make changes to your files. Users who access shared links will not need to have a Box account to view this content. *

When you are sharing a link to a file use the Advances Settings cog to access the Disable shared link on date field.

There is also an Advances Settings cog next to the Link to a Folder option which allows links to a folder to be for a set time period only.
