Now available to six more countries!

Since its launch last year, the VPN service by Google One has only been offered in the US. Apparently, Google has now expanded the service in several countries such as Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, and the United Kingdom. Though some limitations will still remain in place, such as the fact that you won't be able to use the VPN upon going outside of the said countries.

Another thing to note is that this benefit is only available for Google One subscribers at the 2 TB or higher plan. The 2TB plan costs USD 9.99 per month or USD 100 for a whole year. Also, the VPN is only applicable to Android devices although the company has also mentioned that they will eventually roll out support to Windows, Mac, iOS but they didn't tell an exact timeline for other OS.

An independent, but commissioned, audit earlier this year found the Google One VPN to provide "strong" security, with Google quickly fixing the majority of the vulnerabilities raised. However, the VPN remains at the same level as before due to the requirement of a high-tier Google One membership and a lack of device support. Even if it is offered in a few more areas, it is a useful perk for subscribers but not a serious VPN challenger.

So if you aren't needing of cloud storage yet still want to protect your devices wherever you go, there are several good third-party VPNs that can be considered instead.

There is no info yet if it will be available in the Philippines as well.

What do you guys think?
