PSA: Get 2GB of free Google Drive storage when you perform an account security checkup
Just as it did last year, Google will throw some more server space your way as part of Safer Internet Day.
Admit it: you can always use more cloud storage. Google is offering you an easy way to score more Drive space and get some extra peace of mind about your account security.
It’s a simple walkthrough where you can ensure your recovery information, connected devices, account permissions, app password access, and two-step verification settings are all up to date. Once you check all of these out, you’ll see the free Drive storage added to your account. It only takes a minute or two.
Why this matters: Your Google account is a pretty important hub of your day-to-day computing, so it’s a good practice to take some time and ensure there hasn’t been any unusual sign-ins from other devices and that you have two-step authentication turned on. The bad guys are out there, so being smart about your security is the best way to beat them.
