So it seems that Google is giving away 2GB of Drive space for completing its account security checkup! Today, i.e. 9th Feb 2016 is being celebrated as the Safer Internet Day, so Google, being a good Samaritan of the web world is giving away full 2 GB of extra Drive storage for your Drive, Gmail, and Photos. All you need to to is to click on this link and do what everyone should be doing anyhow; secure their Google accounts.
We should also mention that this 2GB of extra storage would not expire.
This is something Google had started last year. In 2015, Internet Safer day was celebrated on 10th Feb and Google, back then, had also gifted 2 GB of storage to all its users who had secured their accounts. In the last couple of years we have seen some big hacking fiascoes taking place (Read Snappening and Fappening) so everyone has tightened their belts (literally :P) when it comes to securing user information, esp the sensitive stuff. People are being taught how important it is to be careful about their digital lives as well nowadays.
Google has an array of security measures in place, like two-factor authentication, app authorization, and numerous ways to regain access to your account. But not all users know about these features or care to set them up. So Google has decided to honeypot its users with a delicious 2 GB of free storage space for Drive.
