If you are subscribed to Google FI, you must have used the built-in virtual private network feature by Google. The VPN comes as part of the monthly subscription. Now, Google is making it available for iPhone users as well.
In case you want to use the Google FI VPN on your iOS device, you will need to head over to the ‘Privacy and Security’ section that can be found under the phone setting in the account tab.
From there, you can easily toggle the VPN using the ‘Protect your online activity’ setting at the top of the screen. After enabling the toggle, you should tap the allow button that pops up. iPhone will ask you if you trust the service and confirm it after you authorize using Touch ID. This will add Google FI VPN to the list of allowed VPNs.
It’s been quite a while since the feature was available on Android devices. First introduced in February of 2018, along with an ‘enhanced network’ option, Google FI VPN was expanded to all Android phones in just a year.
Google said it would be rolling out the feature on most iPhones running on the Fi network. Right now, the VPN service is available in these countries:
Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, US, US Minor Outlying Islands, and Virgin Islands
The VPN service comes with built-in spam blocking and is available on all Google Fi plans, including Flexible, Simply Unlimited, and Unlimited Plus.
