Google is offering 2GB of free Drive storage to those who take an account security checkup

February 8, 2016 Leave a comment

Today is Safer Internet Day – a day aimed at promoting the safe, responsible, and positive use of digital technology. And just like last year, Google is celebrating the day by offering free Drive storage to those who perform a security audit of their Google account.

In case you didn’t take it last year, the Google Security Checkup lets you quickly review and manage your Google Account’s security settings. These include recovery options, connected devices, account permissions, and 2-step verification settings.

Those who complete the audit – a process which takes just a few minutes – will be entitled to 2GB of free Drive storage. Keep in mind that the free storage might not show up immediately. Last year, Google gave a week’s window to complete the security checkup – it isn’t yet clear how much time do we have this year, so act fast if you want that extra Drive storage.

Google Store’s $50 discount on Nexus 5X ends this week

February 8, 2016 Leave a comment

Late last month, we told you about Google’s $50 discount on the Nexus 5X in the US, which came just a couple of weeks after it received a $30 price cut. Given that Google initially didn’t mention any end date for the promo, we thought the price cut was permanent.

However, turns out that’s not the case. The Mountain View, California-based company has now revealed that the deal ends this week – February 12 to be precise. This means those who want to take advantage of the price cut now only have a few days to act.

With the discount, the 16GB model of the LG-made handset will cost you $299, while the 32GB variant will set you back…
