While the company has announced a free VPN service targeted at Google One subscribers with a 2TB or higher plan, with the free VPN addon now rolling out to users on Android.
Google has also added Pro Sessions for 2TB and above plan holders, which sessions allow members to have a one-on-one interaction with Google experts for guidance on how to use Google products, including the Google One membership; the Pro Sessions is currently available for users in the UK, U.S., and Canada.
How the Free VPN By Google One works?
Google One VPN Service is not available for 100 or 200GB plans which starts at $1.99/month and you’ll need a 2TB or higher plan to be qualified for the Free VPN service, which plan starts at $9.99/month all the way up to $299.99/month for the 30TB plan.
The use of VPN is necessary as your browser and apps communicate sensitive information online frequently, and some websites and apps run outdated, weak or even no encryption at all. While data is in transit, unsecured connection can be intercepted or modified by hackers, which can lead to compromise to your privacy and overall security.
So, if you enable a VPN, your data will be protected through a strongly encrypted tunnel, which the VPN operated by Google offers through its secure global servers.
How to get Started with Google One VPN Service
The Google One VPN service is one of the many benefits included with 2TB and higher plans (currently available for U.S. users only), through the Google One app for Android, with support for more regions coming soon.
If you're an existing Google One subscriber in the U.S. on a 2TB or higher plan, you can get access to the VPN at no additional cost, by simply turning on the VPN with one tap from the Google One Android app. While the Google One VPN service for iOS, Windows, and Mac are still in the works.
