Google has expanded its range of internet security with the launch of Google One VPN for iPhone. The feature initially launched for Android in 2020, and is now beginning to roll out for iOS users.
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is an extended private network that shields your internet surfing from the open internet. It basically connects you to a private network before connecting to the internet, which means your actual IP address is not exposed to any third-party. VPNs are increasingly popular among consumers lately, especially for video streaming.
The Google One VPN will be available for Google One Premium Plan (2TB) subscribers on iOS. The Premium Plan costs $9.99 per month, which also offers ten percent in Google Store rewards. Unlike other VPN services, Google’s offering lacks the country-switching option.
Google also added new features to the VPN’s Android counterpart recently.
Safe Disconnect: Only use the internet when the VPN is activated.
App Bypass: Allow specific apps to use a standard connection instead of the VPN.
Snooze: Temporarily turn off the VPN.The Keyword
The VPN service from Google recently added support for ten more countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland. Google says it will continue to add more countries over time.
