What would you do if you lost access to your Google account? It’s not something we would like to think about.

But have you done anything to protect your account from malevolent sources, or at least include a way to recover your account if anything happens?

To help, Google is rewarding anyone who does a security check-up on their account with a cool 2GB of Google Drive storage space.

To get started, head to the Security Check-Up page and login to your Google account.

Google Security Check-up

On the Security Check-up page, you can change or add your recovery information, review your connected devices and app permissions, enable or change your two-step authentication and app password settings. Of course, if anything looks odd or suspicious, you can alert Google and take steps to fix the problem.

Once everything looks like it should and your account is at its most secure, Google will add your bonus 2GB of Google Drive storage to your account, permanently. That’s all there is to it!

It is all part of the Safer Internet Day initiative, which Google and many other companies and organisations are a part of, to promote safer and more responsible internet use.

But you better hurry, you must complete this check-up by February 18 to get the bonus Google Drive data.
