Google One VPN Expands To Additional Countries And Adds Features

You may recall that Google One launched its VPN in the US late last year. Fast forward to today and the Google One VPN is becoming available to Google One members with the 2 TB plan in CanadaMexicothe United KingdomFranceGermanySpain and Italy. Also, since its launch, the VPN has undergone several updates to enhance members’ security and privacy:

  • Safe Disconnect: Members can set up their phone to only use the internet when the VPN is on. If the VPN is disconnected, internet access is blocked until the VPN reconnects.
  • App bypass: When the VPN is connected, members can still allow traffic from some mobile apps to route over their regular internet connection instead of the VPN’s encrypted tunnel. 
  • Snooze button: Members can temporarily turn off the VPN. 
  • ioXt certification: The VPN was certified by the Internet of Secure Things Alliance (ioXt) — making it one of the first apps to receive the organization’s stamp of approval, passing all eight of its security principles
  • Independent audit: The VPN underwent an independent audit, which found it to have “a very robust security posture.”

You can find more information about the VPN by Google One in their Help Center article. You can also find further info here.
