Google Celebrates Safer Internet Day By Giving Everyone 2GB Of Free Drive Storage

Google Celebrates Safer Internet Day By Giving Everyone 2GB Of Free Drive Storage

In case you didn’t know, today is Safer Internet Day, and if you were looking for a reason to celebrate such an occasion how does 2GB of free Google Drive storage sound?

That’s right, Google is offering everyone 2GB of free storage, but there’s a slight catch. You’ll need to complete a quick security checkup to ensure you’re getting the most out of Google’s security features.

Google says the checkup will take around 2 minutes, but I went through it and honestly it only took around 30 seconds. It’s a 3-step process that asks you to verify your password recovery information, as well as review your recent login activity and app permissions.

Once you confirm that everything looks secure you’ll be taken to a screen with three green checkboxes, which means you’re eligible for the 2GB upgrade. You’ll have until February 17th to complete the security checkup, and Google says the additional gigabytes will be added to your account around the end of the month.

If you want to keep on top of your account security you can revisit the security checkup again at any point to ensure there has been no suspicious activity
