Marking Safer Internet Day, Google is giving an extra 2GB of Google Drive storage to anyone who completes this security checkup by February 17.

The checkup makes sure your account recovery information is current, asks you to review recent sign-in activity, and lets you see which apps and devices can access your account.

It’s a worthwhile exercise and Google has certainly sugared the pill with that gift of extra storage.

The company says it’ll give qualifying Google Drive accounts the boost on February 28 and you’ll get an email confirming the change.
