Google has announced that it will be expanding its range of features for all Google One subscribers, making them available to all members regardless of device or plan. New features include VPN access and a dark web report that allows users to identify where their sensitive information is being shared.
The VPN will now be available to all Google One subscribers, including those on the Basic plan, which costs just $2 per month and offers 100GB of storage for all Google accounts. This VPN will be available in 22 countries and can be used on Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac devices. It is primarily intended for use on public Wi-Fi networks, but can also be used to temporarily change your IP address. You can also share the VPN with up to five other people on your One plan.
As for the dark web report feature that will roll out to all Google One members in the United States in the coming weeks. This feature searches the Dark Web for personal information, such as name, address, email, phone number, and Social Security number. If any of your information is found, you will be notified immediately. This will help them identify potential security risks and take action to protect their data. It’s worth noting that Google has already offered a free VPN for Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro owners back in December last year, even if they are not Google One subscribers.
These two new features demonstrate the company’s commitment to providing its users with improved security measures. They are a sign that Google’ remains committed to improving its security features and ensuring the safety of its users’ personal information.
Google is taking proactive steps to address the growing threat of cybercrime and to safeguard its users’ data. These efforts will not only improve the user experience but also give users greater peace of mind when it comes to online security. As cyber threats continue to evolve, it is important that tech companies like Google remain vigilant and proactive in combating them.
