Running a little low on room for online storage? Today, you can get an extra 2 GB of Google Drive storage for free. In honor of Safer Internet Day—an event to raise awareness of Internet safety issues—Google will add extra space to the cloud storage account of anyone who completes a security checkup.

To take advantage of the offer, just go to your Google security settings and run through the process of reviewing your safety settings, including verifying the computers that are logged into your account and the apps you’ve allowed to access your information. If you’ve already set up things like a security question and back-up phone numbers for your two-step verification, it’ll take about 30 seconds. Once you complete all those steps, Google will add 2 GB of storage to your Drive.
