Additional 2GB of Google Drive space is now being credited to accounts for those who checked their security settings

Drive Update
On February 10th, which was Safer Internet Day, Google invited users to check their security settings on their Google account. For those who completed the check, Google promised an additional 2GB of Google Drive space, and that additional space is now being added, with users receiving an email notifying users that the space has been added.

The email began arriving this afternoon, so best checking your inbox to see if you’ve received the email, which looks a little like this:

You can alternatively go to your Google Drive storage quota page and check your space, which should list 2GB from Google Support. It’s not much, but it’s 2GB of free storage and that’s nothing to sneeze at if you’re down to the wire.

Thanks: +Onel Benjamin.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Hope the Photos separation from Google+ goes ahead, may well switch over completely from Dropbox if it does. Love keeping my old snaps backed up online, but cannot stand Google+…


No email but I do see the extra 2GB in Drive 🙂

Standalone Google Drive Windows .MSI installer, dated 4 March 2015.
This works fine in Win7 and 8 32 bit. No idea if it works in 64bit
Link in my reply to this post
The link is easy to update, as long as you can get the current version number

Up to 27GB now. 13GB in use. At this rate I’ll keep getting free space as quickly as I can use it 🙂
