You can use a variety of VPN services to help protect your privacy and security through an encrypted Internet connection. Now Google has its own VPN service. Technically, it has done it, but only for Google Fi cellular users on Android smartphones.

The new VPN is just the latest way for Google to try to improve its cloud storage products. In August, the company announced that it would start backing up your iOS or Android phones for free. It also lowered prices in 2018.
