Google plans to launch its own virtual private network (VPN) service for customers. The search engine giant US will launch the feature in a specific registration plan under the ‘Google One’ cloud storage service.
A few days ago, Google brought up the issue of planning with VPN. The service will be launched to give customers safe internet access, Reuters reported, citing Google.
In many countries, the government bans certain sites and services. By using VPN, customers can avoid those barriers and use the sites and services.
According to Google, the feature will be unveiled to Android customers in the United States in the next few weeks. In a few months, the company will launch the feature in other countries and for iOS, Windows and Mac operating systems.
Currently, at least two terabytes of Google One Cloud users in the United States will be able to use this free Android-based VPN service.
Technology site Verge cited the report as a strategy to make Google’s new VPN plan more acceptable to the company’s cloud service customers.
In August this year, Google further announced that free iOS and Android phone backup services will be offered in the cloud. The company has also reduced the price of cloud services in 2016.
