Major Google Fi feature finally deemed ready for primetime both on Android and iOS
Launched all the way back in 2015 for a single Google-made phone, Project Fi gained quite a bit of traction over the years, expanding its support to various Android handsets and eventually iPhones while also shortening its name as it reached a maturity point of sorts.
That’s true for all subscribers using an Android mobile device, regardless of your Fi plan, and better yet, the search giant aims to roll out this very handy feature to all its iPhone-owning customers “starting this spring.” Obviously, you won’t have to use a VPN if you don’t want to, but whenever the need might arise to stream, download, or simply surf the web on a fully encrypted and private connection, it’s definitely nice to know you won’t have to install any special app or pay extra for this benefit.
That aforementioned privacy and security “hub”, by the way, will make it extremely easy to understand exactly what the VPN feature is good for, detailing all the ways it can protect you against hackers, peepers, and snoopers.
For some reason, Google also saw the need this week to highlight Fi’s ability to block suspected spam and unwanted calls, as well as protect your phone number against theft, neither of which are new or improving features.
