Google Brings Its VPN to iOS Devices – PCMag


Google’s virtual private network (VPN) service is now available on iOS devices.

The descriptively named VPN by Google One, which was exclusive to Android smartphones when it debuted in October 2020, is now available to Apple smartphone owners who pay for at least 2TB of storage via the cloud backup service, the company says.

The 2TB Google One plan runs $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year.

Google recently updated VPN by Google One on Android devices with several new features as well. (Presumably the same features are included with the iOS version; the company doesn’t specify.) Those updates include:

  • 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.

Google’s VPN is now available in 10 more countries, too, bringing the list of markets where the service is available up to 18. The company says VPN by Google One will “expand to more countries over time” but doesn’t offer any hints as to where the service might launch next.

Google says this service is supposed to “give you an extra layer of online protection for your phone and the peace of mind that your connection is safer.” A VPN isn’t strictly necessary for that; here’s a primer on what they can do. More details can be found via Google’s website.
