Google now includes a VPN for iPhones with Google Fi subscriptions. Google has announced that iPhone customers who subscribe to one of its Google Fi phone plans will now get an integrated VPN service.
So, Google has started handing out its VPN service to iPhone customers. As previously promised on “Safer Internet Day” in February 2021. The VPN is accessible on Android, where it has experienced significant use on Google Fi’s phone plans.
The new service, which was announced on the official Google Fi Twitter account, is already rolling out, AppleInsider said.
“We are not updating every user simultaneously,” Google Fi support said on Twitter.
“However, customers will be able to get the update in the following weeks,” it said.
“The Fi VPN enables you to watch, browse, and download securely,” Google stated in a statement.
“It stops websites from tracking your IP address and helps protect you from hackers. Even while you’re using insecure networks,” the company said.
Google Fi is a wireless service that includes “free spam call detection and filtering”. Its plans begin at $20 per month for a single user.
Users with other mobile phone plans may continue to add VPNs from third-party providers. Apple’s next iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterey operating systems will not contain a VPN but will provide comparable privacy security through Private Relay.
