Google One to provide more online protection with the new VPN

Updated: Oct 31, 2020

We all know using public Wi-Fi network is less secure than our personal network as it can put our personal information at risk of theft from hackers.

To give users peace of mind that their data is safe, Google is announcing the new VPN by Google One on its 2 TB and higher plans to provide an extra layer of online protection for our Android phone. 

Google has already built advanced security into all products, and the VPN extends that security to encrypt all of our phone’s online traffic, no matter what app or browser we're using. The VPN is built into the Google One app, so with just one tap, we can rest assured knowing your connection is safe from hackers.

Google is also now rolling out Pro Sessions by Google One with VPN support. With Pro Sessions, users can schedule one-on-one online sessions with a Google expert to learn more about VPNs and how to stay safer online.

Users will get access to the VPN and Pro Sessions in addition to the 2 TB of storage and other member benefits we already get with the plan, like 10 percent back in store credit on all Google Store device purchases. Plus, if we’ve shared your 2 TB 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.

These are just a few more ways that a Google One membership helps users get the most out of Google with more peace of mind and helpful experiences.

Google Store rewards give the Store credit on hardware purchases from the Google Store. This is only available in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Germany and United Kingdom. One thing to note on Pro Sessions: there are limited appointments available on a first come, first served basis.

The VPN by Google One will roll out in the United States 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.

Pro Sessions will also be available in the coming weeks to all 2 TB members in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada.
