Google Account Security Checkup

A security checkup will essentially make you aware of your account recovery options, your recent activities and recent application permissions. Ideally, one should be reviewing these security settings regularly to prevent from hacking and malicious usage of account. Google is trying to safeguard its users 1) By making the reviewing process really simple to use and 2) by offering free storage on Google Drive. I wish other companies also encourage thier users to check their account settings regularly.

From the Drive teams announcement –

This Safer Internet Day, we’re reminded how important online safety is and hope you’ll use this as an opportunity to take 2 minutes to complete a simple Security Checkup. While everything stored in Drive is always encrypted in transit and at rest in Google’s custom-built data centers, this checkup ensures you’re making the most of the 24/7 protection you already get from Google. As our way of saying thanks for completing the checkup by 17 February 2015, we’ll give you a permanent 2 gigabyte bump in your Google Drive storage plan.
