    Apologies if this has been posted already but thought I'd share. I went through the Security Check to get rid of the nags, and got a 2GB Drive increase as a freebie since its apparently SaferInternetDay :)

    Thanks!
    I'm up to 19 GB now. :)
    More than enough for my use!

    Good stuff. I got a great promo deal when I got my M8 - plus 15GB to start - plus this 2GB - now means I'm on 117GB - dread to think what I do if the big G decides to pull this back once my current contract finishes :eek:

    No doubt your promo deal is temporary, probably for a year. No problem. 100GB is only $2/mo. I think pretty much anyone can afford that. 1TB is $10/mo.

    Thanks for the info. Now have 3 accounts up to 19GB and the master account is up to 1.01TB.

    Good to know (never checked on the cost tbh)

    the extra 2gb from the security check will only last for a year (unless you replenish it with another security check promo next year).

    I know because I was notified that my 2gb from last years promo is expiring.

    It's still a good deal.... and good idea to do the security check...Just wanted to mention that it's not quite as good as it might sound.

    Seems to have stacked on top of mine from last year:

    Hmm. I may have been mistaken (in fact I hope so...I can use all the space I can get). I searched and found this attached expiration email...But It is related to a different Google drive space bonus (for using quick office). Didn't find another email about the security bonus space. Maybe I was confusing the two.

    Yeah, mine (both) are showing 19. I don't think this upgrade/bonus expires.

    I just did the security check and now within a few minutes it shows I've got 19gb too.

    So it's official, I was very confused (probably won't be the last time, either)

    Thanks for setting me straight.

    It just wouldn't be the usual fun if someone wasn't confused [emoji14] It's not like I normally have a clue...

    I pay for 1TB, but thanks to this and various other promotions, I've actually got something like 1.125TB.

    It's only an extra 2GB, but for all it takes to so the survey, it's totally worth it.

    Is the free 2 GB for real? Thank you, Val Elsberry

    They seem to have stopped doing these promotions a couple years back. I haven't gotten one since 2016.
