Limitations of Google One VPN

No VPN is perfect. Not even the Google One VPN! And although you are getting it for free with a Pixel 7 device, there are some limitations you should know about.

Free Access Is Only Exclusive to Your Pixel 7 and 7 Pro Device

Yes, Google One VPN is available for Windows and macOS. However, the free service is only exclusive to Pixel 7 devices.

The free Google One VPN service is the same one you get with the 2TB tier of the Google One cloud storage plan. And if you have used it before, you might already know it can properly mask IP addresses and traffic. That reduces online tracking and protects you while using unsecured or public WiFi.

So, offering such a fantastic VPN for free is really a good selling point for Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. And now that you know how to enable it, you can too make proper use of it.
