Google launches free VPN to protect users’ privacy

Nowadays, it is increasingly important to use a VPN in the most varied online activities, but mainly, to guarantee the security of your private data. Especially when connected to a public WiFi network, the use of a VPN is an essential asset.

Google Fi subscribers in the United States have had access to an integrated VPN for a long time, but the company had not yet decided to expand that offering. Today, they announced through their official blog that they will implement the VPN service in all Google One 2TB (or higher) packages.

Google VPN Free

Unfortunately, this implementation will only be available to users in the United States. However, it is likely that it will eventually expand to users globally.

What is a VPN and what is it for?

The name VPN means “Virtual Private Network”, or Virtual Private Network, with the main objective of being able to guarantee users’ online privacy. When using a VPN, your operator or any hacker who tries to access your data, will not be able to obtain information about your location or even the sites you visit.

In addition, these services usually allow you to “mask” your location by selecting a specific country, making it possible to access blocked content / sites through geo-restriction. A good example of this is that, through a VPN, you can access the library of series and films available in any country.

There are many free alternatives to the new Google VPN

As mentioned, for now, the new Google VPN will not be available outside the United States. However, there are a number of totally free alternatives that can help ensure your safety while using the internet.

Among the most popular services you can find:

  • TunnelBear
  • Hospot Shield
  • Windscribe
  • hide.me

But, if you want to know everything about the best free VPN, take the opportunity to see our in-depth article that shows you all the pros and cons of each of the services.
