Google One, a subscription service that offers additional features such as cloud storage and device backups for Android users, is set to become even more beneficial to its customers.

Previously, only Google One premium tier members with 2TB plans and above as well as Pixel 7/7 Pro owners have access to the VPN service. Now, it is available to those on lower-tier plans, too.

Google One’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows users to create a private and secure connection while using public Wi-Fi networks, such as at cafes. It also conceals the IP address of Android device owners using the service to prevent potential hackers or network operators from accessing their data.

All Google One subscription plans provide VPN access to users across a range of devices, including Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac, across 22 nations. In addition, subscribers have the option to share their plan with up to five other individuals.

Recently, Google One rolled out access to its exclusive Dark Web monitoring for those in the US. This feature is available to Android users included in the program and can be used to assess personal data for potential risks and to ensure maximum safety and security.

If such cases occur, Google will inform affected users of the steps to take to protect sensitive information on their system, with the assurance that it is following its privacy policy. Users are also offered the option to receive dark web monitoring and have the flexibility to choose whether they want it or not.

The Google One VPN service is currently not available for users in the Philippines, but it’s expected to expand and roll out to more countries soon.
