Without doing much promotion, the web giant Google is launching into the VPN market (encrypted network to connect to the internet), by offering a new service that it has backed by its online storage offer, for now only accessible in the US and on Android phones.
“With a simple gesture in the Google One application, you can encrypt your online activity in order to benefit from an additional layer of protection, wherever you are connected”, presents Google which thus enters a market of the private life on the way to the general public.
A service “soon available in other countries”
The offer will be included in the price of $ 9.99 per month, which provides 2 Terabytes (TB) of data storage.
Google promises that its service “will soon be available in other countries”, without specifying a date, and that an application will eventually be launched on iOS, Windows and Mac.
According to Google, “Minimal logging is done to ensure quality of service, but your network traffic is never logged and your IP address is not associated with your activity. “
