GOOGLE has finally launched a VPN on iPhone – a great way to boost your privacy instantly.
Google One VPN is a simple way to limit who can spy on you.
It used to only work on Android smartphones, but now it has been implemented on iPhones.
A VPN is a smart tool that helps keep your iPhone safe.
VPN stands for virtual private network – is a kind of application that protects what you do online.
It encrypts and reroutes your internet traffic, so outsiders can’t see what you’re doing.
This means that your internet service provider cannot track your activity.
More importantly, you’re significantly safer using public WiFi.
Your activity can easily be monitored if you are using WiFi in a coffee shop or airport.
But with a VPN, it’s nearly impossible to know exactly what you’re doing.
Using a VPN is one of the most recommended security steps you can take, as well as choosing a stronger password and setting up two-factor authentication for your logins.
Lots of companies offer VPNs, but sometimes it’s hard to know who to trust.
The advantage of Google One VPN is that it is managed by a tech giant well known in the public eye.
So if there is any foul play, it will almost certainly be detected.
The only point is that Google’s VPN is not free.
Most high-quality VPNs aren’t free, although Google’s is a bit more expensive than some of the other options.
You’ll get it by subscribing to the £7.99/$9.99 a month Google One Premium plan.
Thankfully that also gives you some other services.
You get 2TB of storage for Drive, Gmail, and Photos, and have 24/7 access to Google experts for technical support.
There is also a 3% cashback program on Google Store purchases.
And you can share your plan with up to six family members.

Google One VPN is available in 18 countries, including the UK, US, and Canada.
Apple also has its own VPN-style system built into the iPhone called Private Relay.
However, this only works with the Safari browser – and doesn’t include all internet traffic on your iPhone.
