Project Fi will route all users’ internet traffic through VPN
Google is pumping its MVNO service with the power of virtual private networks.
Now, Project Fi is testing VPN encryption to all connections, be it other Wi-Fi networks or on cellular — through Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular or any partnering international networks. Google says that it and any potential monitors won’t be able to tie traffic with Google accounts or phone numbers (other than with Google’s own online platforms like YouTube and Gmail) through this method.
All phones running on Android Pie can experience the new encryption in beta by going into the Project Fi app settings and enabling the toggle in the Fi Network Tools section.
