Cyberspace security has been one top issue for a society. The Bright Internet (BI) based on the five principles offers a viable solution. The adoption of BI is important to the implementation of BI. A majority of the previous studies have mainly focused on access-policy violations and compliance in the past decades, while the extra-role behaviors have obtained insufficient attentions. Based on the theories of social control and accountability, this study examines the impacts of extra-role behaviors on BI policy adoption. The research findings have implications for future research and practice.
