Google Drive – Get 2GB of free storage!

Today is #SaferInternetDay (yes that is a thing). Google is encouraging people to check their security settings which isn’t a bad thing. It only takes two minutes and Google will reward you with two free GB of extra storage on your drive account! That’s pretty fantastic.

Once you’ve gone through the whole security checklist – head over to Google Drive and then check out your Drive storage info.

If it doesn’t show up right away don’t freak out. It may take a few hours to reflect. If you really want to know click on the Upgrade Storage button.

There you have it! It’s always good to check your security settings on all your websites once in a while and try to change your passwords annually.

Happy Safer Internet Day – from Google

This Safer Internet day (yes this is a thing) is being celebrated by the good people at Google too. They are encouraging all their users to go and do a security check up for your Google account, which is a pretty good idea to do from time to time. If you do this before February 17th Google will add 2GB of storage to your Drive account – permanently!

This is only applicable to your personal Google account so people with Google Apps accounts should still do it, but there is no reward outside of knowing that your account is secure.
