Having your own VPN is definitely a must right now. It’s about more than just being able to access things that you can’t easily access, but also about protecting what you have. Google wants to help more in this area by offering Fi VPN for Android. We’ve heard about this before, but the service is coming out of beta, which means more people will be able to access it and have a more secure network. It is especially important when you are always on the phone you use away from home.
Public Wi-Fi used to access applications and websites is often not secure. There is always the risk of being hacked because there are sites that do not encrypt the data. If you use sensitive information, be sure to use VPN. Google now offers a virtual private network integrated with Fi phone plans so you can be worry free.
Google’s Fi VPN lets you browse, download, and stream content over a private, encrypted connection. If you have a VPN, websites can’t just use your IP address to track your location. You are protected from hackers even with an insecure connection.
Google Fi VPN improvements
For ‘Safer Internet Day’, Google has announced some enhancements to Fi VPN, including the beta version of Fi VPN for Android. This Fi VPN is also expanding to iPhone users so that everyone, even non-Android users, can have access to security and privacy features.
Now, more people can take advantage of Google Fi’s blocking of unwanted calls and suspicious spam. This is offered for free. According to Google, “Fi blocks tens of thousands of spam calls every day”.
Your personal phone number is protected against theft. You can also benefit from protection such as suspicious activity notifications, account recovery process, or two-step verification.
