No matter how much you rely on your internet connection, adding another layer of security is always a good idea. An easy way to do this is to have a trusted Virtual Private Network (VPN) app on all your devices. That includes smartphones and tablets, not just regular computers. This is especially true if you want to use any of your devices to connect to a free Wi-Fi hotspot around town or on the go. VPN services will help keep your Internet traffic anonymous and prevent spying. The VPN you choose should also come from a trusted source. And it so happens that Google is running its own VPN service through some of its products. This includes Wi-Fi cellular networks and premium Google One Cloud subscriptions. The good news is that Google Fi VPN is finally available on iPhones running on Google’s network.

How to enable Google Fi VPN on iPhone.
Needless to say, to enable Fi VPN on your iPhone, you first need to go to Google’s MVNO Cellular service. That’s Fi, and you can’t use Fi VPN without it. VPN service is available free of charge, so you don’t have to pay extra to secure your internet traffic.
Enabling Wi-Fi VPN should be straightforward for anyone who has ever used a VPN service on an iOS device. Like other VPN apps, you need to enable Fi VPN from the main app. You will then need to make sure that you allow Fi VPN profile to be installed on your device.
Google already has a support document that lists all the steps involved in activating Fi VPN on your iPhone. Here’s what you need to do:

- Faucet Privacy and security..

Similarly, you may have added Google Fi to your VPN configuration and allowed it to use your VPN for all Internet connections on your device. If you have more VPN profiles installed, you can always disable it and switch between different VPN providers.
Since we’ve talked about choosing a VPN service from a trusted source, we’ll add that Google’s Fi VPN is one such service. Google states in the same support document that it will not link your VPN Internet activity to your Google profile and that all data is secure in transit. And Google should rely on the Shader VPN services out there.
