Google is expanding VPN access to all Google One members on all plans and rolling out a new dark web report feature for all subscribers. VPN by Google One was previously only available to members on the Premium 2TB plan, but will now be available to all Google One members, including those on the Basic plan that starts at $1.99 per month.
The VPN will be available in 22 countries on Android, iOS, Windows and Mac devices. You'll be able to share it with up to five other people who are on your One plan.
To use your new VPN, you'll head into the Google One app and look for the "VPN" tile on the main page. Tapping through that will get you to the on/off toggle and let you configure a handful of settings. If you don't see it on the main page, you'll also find it in the Benefits tab. Google One's VPN is now on desktop computers too.
With this change, storage space is the primary differentiating factor between Google One plans. The basic plan offers 100GB of storage, while the Premium plan offers 2TB. There's also a free tier with 15GB of storage, but it does not include VPN access.
For One subscribers in the US, Google is also adding a feature called "Dark web report," which will "scan the dark web for your personal info." Enabling it involves creating a profile with the information you want to scan for - you can add things like your email address, physical address, social security number, phone number, and date of birth. If Google finds it in any of its scans, you'll get a notification with suggestions on what kind of steps you can take.
