4. Best of all, you’ll still get 2GB even if you already completed the Security Checkup last year!

7. If you want even *more* free storage, you can earn up to 1TB by becoming a local Google Maps guide.

Contribute information like reviews, restaurant hours, and answer questions about the location to earn points. If you earn as many as 200 points, you’ll get a whole terabyte of Drive storage (a $120 per year value).
