The Google Fi VPN will let you use an encrypted private connection when you stream, browse the Internet, use email, apps and more on your iPhone.
VPNs use mobile data for encryption and network optimizations. To make sure that you don’t lose connectivity, when your Wi-Fi connection is unusable, the VPN will move you to a cell network. If you’re in the middle of a download, it might keep downloading over mobile data. To go back to Wi-Fi, try moving closer to your router or access point, or pick a different network.
You can find out more information about this new feature being added to Google Fi over at the Google Fi website at the link below. The service may not be available to everyone initially as it is apparently being rolled out in stages.
