Google will give you 2GB of Drive storage for 2 minutes of your time


To help do its part for Safer Internet Day, Google is offering 2GB of additional Drive storage to anyone that completes a Security Checkup between now and February 17th. If you complete the checkup, your bonus storage will show up on February 28th.

They claim the survey checkup will take about two minutes, and having just completed it myself, I can tell you that if you have set up your security options before it takes more like 30 seconds. They just inquire about your recovery info, have you look over recent sign-ins and confirm the apps and devices that have access to your account.

Considering this is something that you should be reviewing on a semi-regular basis anyway, getting a little free storage to get it done should be enough to push you over the top and take the time to check it out.

One note is that the free storage isn’t available to Apps for Work or Apps for Education accounts, so if that’s you then you’ll just be doing the checkup for your own security, which again doesn’t seem like the worst thing you could do with a minute.

You can either click through the source link below for additional details or take the survey checkup immediately by clicking here.

    Where is the link. Takes me to security settings. After confirming everything there is no survey.

      Sorry, I should never have written survey. Completing the security settings check is all that is necessary, you will see the bonus storage on the 28th.
