Tech giant Google has announced that it is expanding its VPN access to all Google One members, including members on the Basic plan that starts at $1.99 per month.
The VPN is currently being rolled out and will be available in 22 countries on Android, iOS, Windows and Mac devices, the tech giant writes in a blog post on Wednesday.
“VPN by Google One adds more protection to your internet activity no matter what apps or browsers you use, protecting it from hackers or network operators by masking your IP address.”
Without a VPN, the sites and applications users visit can use their IP address to track their activity or find their location.
Google One’s VPN was previously limited to plans of only 2 TB and above.
The company also introduced the “dark web report” feature for US users to help them better control their personal information.
Google One’s dark web report helps users scan the dark web for their personal information — their name, address, email address, phone number, and social security number — and notifies them if it is found.
“Dark web report will be rolled out to members of all Google One plans in the US in the coming weeks,” the tech giant said.
