Here's How to Get 2GB of Google Drive Storage For Free in Just Seconds

You may not be aware of it, but it's international Safer Internet Day today. It's all about keeping your passwords secret, avoiding phishing scams and dodgy downloads, as well as spotting the tell-tale signs of online abuse and stamping out trolling. And, to mark the occasion, Google is looking to get your security details bang up to date by offering 2GB of extra Google Drive storage, absolutely free.

It takes literally seconds to take advantage of the offer. All Google Drive users have to do is head to their security page (you can jump straight there from this link), and check all your security details, such as contact number, alternate email address and security question, are still relevant. That's it. If you don't have to change anything, you can nab 2GB of extra storage in about 20 seconds, and less than a minute if you need to change any details. It'll also give you an overview of what apps have permission to tap into your Google account, which may be quite the eye-opener for those with stuffed app drawers and a reliance on web services. Do it now, it's totally worth the effort. [Google]
