People need to STOP spam incorrect info there's no issue on my OBITALK to Google voice so I removed the text whoever put about OBITALK not working with Goggle Voice.

Edit: Nope, this actually did boost me to 19GB. Nice.

I did this last year, as well. Apparently this does stack with that if you were bumped up to 17GB last year.
Yep -- my Google Storage page now reads:

19 GB total storage
Your plan
15 GB
2016 Security Checkup Bonus
2 GB
Security Checkup Bonus
2 GB
Notes:


To check your exact Google Drive storage space, click here [google.com]. Hover or click on the pie chart to see the allocation of space.
If you did the Security Checkup in 2015, you will still earn 2GB for this year. In the pie chart breakdown, it'll show:

2016 Security Checkup Bonus:2 GB
Security Checkup Bonus: 2 GG


In general, Google storage space is shared between Gmail, Drive, and Photos.
The 2 GB of storage space you earned is permanent.
The 2GB of space from this promotion should be applied instantly and automatically, but some members are stating it may take several minutes for the update.
This promotion can be completed in a matter of seconds or minutes if you just click through it quickly. Of course, for a true security checkup, it may be ideal to actually look through it and make sure your account is safe; even then, this checkup should take very long.

I hope this helps,
Tofu Vic

Mine didn't show 17GB in Drive after completing these steps, but when I clicked Get More Storage, the pie chart on the following page did show 17. Excellent!
