What do you think of when we mention February holidays? Valentine’s Day? Well, sure, that’s the easy one. What you might not have been aware of is that tomorrow, February 9, is Safer Internet Day, part of a decade-old campaign dedicated to promoting good security practices among internet users. Considering all the personal data we entrust to online services, keeping our information locked down and under our control is more important now than ever, and this week some big names like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and Google are all spreading the word about what each of us can do to keep our online identities as secure as possible. For Google users, that means the opportunity to score some free cloud storage, just for taking a few moments to review your security settings.

Just like Google did last February, this year it’s awarding users who complete a short security checkup an extra 2GB of Drive storage. Already checked your account recover info, paired devices, and two-factor settings last year? Cool – but do it gain now, and you’ve got yet another 2GB coming your way.

It takes just seconds and that storage is a permanent addition to your account, so why not take a moment to look over your security settings?

Click through the source link below to get started, and don’t forget to swing back around if you’re juggling multiple accounts, and make sure your settings are all up to date for each one.
