Google Launches Free VPN For Google One Users With 2TB(+) Plans
Google One announced a VPN by Google One for subscribers with a plan of 2TB or more. The free Google VPN addon will be rolled out for Android, iOS, Windows 10 as well as Mac.
The company is also adding Pro sessions for holders of a 2TB + plan. These sessions will allow members to have one-on-one interaction with Google experts on how to better use Google products, including Google One membership. This service is being rolled out for users in the UK, US and Canada.
The catch here is that you can’t add Google VPN to 100 or 200 GB plans that start at $ 1.99 / month. To use this service, you’ll need a 2TB or more plan, which starts at $ 9.99 / month and goes up to $ 299.99 / month for the 30TB plan.
VPN by Google One
If you have a Google One plan, a VPN is the icing on the cake. A virtual private network or VPN is additional protection against data theft and online tracking. You can check out our list of the 10 best VPN services in 2020. We also have a list of 6 factors to consider when choosing a VPN.
Speaking of VPN by Google One, it will be rolled out to users in the US first and then in other countries. There are already two key features that I like about the new service. First of all, it will be available for iOS, Windows, and Mac so you can use it from any device. Second, you can share the VPN with family members in the same way you can share Google One.
What is Google One?
Google One is a premium storage plan from Google, which has other benefits as well. Starting at 100GB, plans go up to 30TB. Typically, Google gives you 15GB of free storage and unlimited storage of high-quality photos through Google Photos. However, you can save your images in the original uncompressed resolution without worrying about running out of space if you have a Google One plan.
Besides storage, Google One gives you direct access to Google experts if you need help using Google services. Another good thing here is that you can share this plan with your family. You can add up to 5 additional family members and offer them additional Google Drive storage space. With the VPN added, it makes higher level plans a better deal.
