Google wants to give you 2GB of free cloud storage for making Drive safer

Google is giving users 2GB of free storage on Google Drive, as part of its initiative for Safer Internet Day. The company posted on the Google Drive blog, asking users to go through a security checkup, at the end of which, they'll be rewarded with the extra storage space. Users have to go through the checkup process by 17 February 2015 though and the storage space will be a permanent addition.

Here are the steps mentioned on Google’s blog post, 

Ensures your account recovery information is current
If we detect suspicious activity in your account, we use your recovery info to get in touch and make sure no one but you gains access.
Lets you review recent sign-in activity
Reviewing this lets you validate the sign-ins are coming from you and not someone who shouldn't be using your credentials.
Confirms the apps and devices that access some account information
This step lets you monitor this list and remove apps and devices that don't need access to your account any more.

The free storage space will be awarded to users around 28 February, wrote Google. The company will send out an email to users when the adjustment has been completed.
