In celebration of Safer Internet Day (February 10, 2015), Google is requesting that you to perform a 2 minutes (simple) Security Checkup to make sure everything associated with your Google account looks OK.
If you complete the Security Checkup by February 17, 2015, Google will give you a “permanent” 2 gigabyte increase in your Google Drive Storage plan. This increase in your storage will occur around Feburary 28, 2015. You will receive an email when the adjustment has been made… (source: Google Drive Blog)
This is an easy way to get a couple gigs of space on your Google Drive and in the end you will know where to go to in the future in order to examine your account information. In summary the Security Checkup consist of the following:
- Ensures your account recovery information is current
If Google detects suspicious activity in your account, Google will 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 anymore.
