How to get 2GB of free Google Drive storage today

Google Security Day

Google is giving away 2GB of Drive space for Safer Internet Day 2016. All you have to do is perform an easy and quick security checkup. Just click the link and follow the instructions on the security page and Google will add 2GB of extra free space to your Drive account.

This is the second time Google has offered users free storage during Safer Internet Day. Users who participated last year will get 2GB on top of the 2GB they received last year.

Google Drive is available for free for your Mac/PC or iOS device. The app allows users to store and backup videos, photos, and documents without eating up space on their laptop, smartphone or tablet. Drive users can also easily transfer videos, photos or documents from their iOS device to their laptop or home computer, or vice versa. This is a great feature for Chromebook and other laptops that don't seamlessly sync with your iPhone or iPad.

Other features of Drive include the ability to search for files by name and content, view content offline, share large files with other Drive users, read PDFs, view .PSD files and more. Drive allows you to move and store files from your iPhone or iPad when your device runs out of space. It is also a good backup to iCloud when you eat up your initial 5GB of free storage. Drive is perfect for iOS users who take a lot of photos or share a lot of large files and videos and don't want to pay for extra storage on iCloud.
