Extra 2GB of Google Drive Storage w/ Security Checkup EXPIRED
Editor's Notes & Price Research
Link to Security Checkup .
You need to do the complete security checkup by February 17 and you should receive the free and permanent 2GB around February 28. You should also receive an email when your 2GB adjustment is complete. Unfortunately I don't believe you receive an e-mail confirming you've completed the steps, but if you get at least the three green checks indicated in the Google link, you should be good to go.
Quote :This Safer Internet Day, we're reminded how important online safety is and hope you'll use this as an opportunity to take 2 minutes to complete a simple Security Checkup. While everything stored in Drive is always encrypted in transit and at rest in Google's custom-built data centers, this checkup ensures you're making the most of the 24/7 protection you already get from Google. As our way of saying thanks for completing the checkup by 17 February 2015, we'll give you a permanent 2 gigabyte bump in your Google Drive storage plan.
It takes just a couple of minutes and, unlike other checkups, it won't leave you feeling guilty about not flossing. Here's what it does:
Ensures your account recovery information is current
If we detect suspicious activity in your account, we use your recovery info to get in touch and make sure no one but you gains access.
Lets you review recent sign-in activity
Reviewing this lets you validate the sign-ins are coming from you and not someone who shouldn't be using your credentials.
Confirms the apps and devices that access some account information
This step lets you monitor this list and remove apps and devices that don't need access to your account any more.
After you've gone through the checkup successfully, you'll see three green checkboxes (see below) that confirm you're eligible for the free storage and, more importantly, that you've taken steps to enhance your online safety. We'll be granting the storage automatically to everyone around 28 February 2015 and we'll send you an email when your adjustment is complete.
