Google has made an exciting announcement that is sure to be of interest to its users around the world. The tech giant has decided to make its VPN service available for free to all its Google One members, regardless of the tier they have subscribed to.
This is a significant change as until now, only those who had subscribed to one of the higher Google One tiers could access this service.
The rollout of this change has already begun and is expected to be completed within a few weeks.
This means that if you’re a Google One member in any of the following countries:
Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the UK, and the US, you can take advantage of this new benefit.
Google One Free VPN Service
This VPN can be used on various devices, including Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac. Additionally, if you’re on a Google One plan, you can share the VPN with up to five other people.
You may be wondering why Google chose only these countries to offer the VPN service. We can’t answer that right now.
Google One users in the US also have something else to look forward to. A new dark web report has been added to the service.
It’s designed to help you scan the dark web for instances of your personal information that may have been compromised through online security breaches. Online identity fraud is on the rise, and according to Google, it affects millions of people every year.
The dark web report will notify you if it finds any of your personal information on the dark web. To use this feature, you need to provide and select the information you want the service to keep an eye on.
If it discovers anything, it will guide you on how to protect that information. For example, if it finds your Social Security number, it may suggest you report it as stolen to the government or take steps to protect your credit.
Google will be rolling out the dark web report to all Google One plans in the US over the next few weeks.
A free VPN service on all Google One plans and the addition of a dark web report to US-based Google One users are both significant benefits for those who value online security and privacy.
If you’re a member, use these new services to protect yourself and your personal information online.
