Having a VPN is something that is very useful in many cases. It allows us to connect to public networks with greater security or access sites that may be geographically blocked. There are many options and one of them is to use Google’s. In this article we echo the change of the Google VPN , which is now much more accessible to everyone in some countries.
Google’s VPN, much more accessible
You can use the Google VPN through Google One . This service also includes additional storage space. From now on, the news is that all Google One subscribers will have access to the Google VPN. It will therefore be much more accessible and easy to use for everyone.
Basic and Standard plan customers were left out of the Google VPN. That now changes and they will be able to access this service. The Basic plan is the first paid plan and includes 100 GB of storage, as well as access to Google Experts and other benefits. From now on also access to the VPN.
From Google they have indicated that in the coming weeks it will reach 22 countries , among which is Spain. Therefore, if you are a Google One customer, even if you have the Basic plan, you will soon be able to use the VPN to browse the Internet. But the fact that it is only available for 22 countries does not mean that you cannot use it while traveling, simply that only users from those countries will be able to use it, wherever they are.
Keep in mind that Google VPN is available for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android. Therefore, you will be able to use it both on the computer and on the mobile. You will be able to browse encrypted wherever you are, no matter what type of device you are using at that moment.
Dark Web Crawl
Another novelty is that Google One now offers a Dark Web tracking service . The idea is to alert in case they detect a leaked password or any security problem that exposes user data and ends up on the Dark Web, which is where personal data, stolen accounts, etc. are put up for sale.
The problem is that for this function we are going to still have to wait in Spain. For now, this new feature will only be available to users in the United States. However, it is hoped that it will also reach other countries soon and you will be able to benefit from it.
As you can see, you have one more option to use a VPN and browse. If you have a Google One plan, you will already be able to access this service without problems. If you use any other app, always keep in mind the monthly limit of the VPN. That will allow you to avoid problems in case you are going on a trip and need to watch Netflix, for example. Therefore, always take a good look at which service to use and what its characteristics are.
