Google is expanding its VPN for its Google Fi cell service to iPhone users, as well as bringing the Android version out of beta.
Google Fi is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) cellular service, first established in 2015. Google Fi piggybacks on T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular’s networks. In 2018, the company unveiled Fi VPN, allowing users to protect their calls and privacy. Originally, however, the VPN service was only available for Android.
According to a blog post, the company is bringing the Fi VPN service to iPhone users in the spring.
Everyone should have easy access to tools that protect their personal information. That’s why we’re expanding access to the VPN to iPhone®, so that it will be available for all users on Fi. We plan to roll out the VPN to iPhone® users starting this spring.
In addition, the Android version of Fi VPN is finally leaving beta, after more than two years. Google’s updates to Fi VPN should help keep users protected, regardless of their phone platform of choice.
