Google Announces New VPN For Online Protection

Provides an extra layer of online protection on Android phones

To protect people from hacking via unsecured public wi-fi networks, Google has announced a new virtual private network (VPN) by Google One to provide an extra layer of online protection on Android phones.

The VPN by Google One is available for people who have taken 2TB and higher plans.

If you’ve shared your 2TB Google One plan with family members (up to five additional people), they can also enable the VPN on their own devices at no extra cost.

The VPN by Google One will roll out in the US in the coming weeks through the Google One app (Android only) and will expand to more countries and to iOS, Windows, and Mac in the coming months.

The company said in a statement that it is rolling out ‘Pro Sessions’ by Google One with VPN support.

“With Pro Sessions, you can schedule one-on-one online sessions with a Google expert to learn more about VPNs and how to stay safer online,” the company said on Thursday.
