February 9 is marked as ‘Safer Internet Day (SID)’, and Google is rewarding users with free Drive storage if they ensure their account is secure. Google is prompting users to review their account’s security settings, and by going through a few steps you can get 2GB of free Google Drive storage. This promotion is only for today. Hit the break for step-by-step guide on how to get 2GB of free Google Drive storage.

You will first need to head over to Google’s Security Checkup page, and login using your Google credentials. In the first step, you need to check and update (if necessary) your mobile phone number. The reason for updating your phone number is to ensure you can recover your account if something goes wrong in the future and you are unable to access your account.

The next step is to check what devices are using your Google account. You should ideally see a list of computers and smartphones that you have used to login to your Google account. If you find an unknown device, hit the ‘Something looks Wrong’ button, and Google will prompt you to immediately change your account password. This step ensures that no one else can access your Google account.

The last step is to check what services have the permission to access your Google account. These could include services like Google Chrome browser, WhatsApp or email accounts like Outlook. Again if something looks wrong, you can simply hit the remove button to revoke access to your account.

Once you have reviewed the security settings and hit ‘Done’, you will be immediately rewarded with 2GB of extra Google Drive space. To check if you have received the extra storage, head over to Google Drive and click on Settings.
