Cloud freebie wars: Microsoft OneDrive giveaway overshadows Google Drive’s free 2 Gigabytes

Microsoft has announced that it is now giving away 100 GB of OneDrive cloud storage for free, for two years. This was announced on the same day that Google let it be known that it was giving away 2 GBs of Google Drive storage, forever. Both freebies come with small stipulations, but nothing to be too concerned about.

Starting with Google’s munificence, users can receive 2 gigabytes of free cloud storage for Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+, if they review their security settings. By completing a new Security Check-up that consists of changes to account permissions, recent activity and recovery information, before February 17th, Google will hand-out the free 2GBs.  According to Google the new settings are like “a second padlock on your account’s door.”
