Google One VPN shuts down on June 20, Pixel updates coming

Must read

Earlier this year Google announced that the Google One VPN would be shutting down and, now, we have a specific date.

In an update to a support page and the Google One app, it’s confirmed that the Google One VPN will no longer work as of June 20, 2024.

Previously in April, Google only said that the VPN would shut down in “the coming months.” The message first appeared a few days ago, and is now widely appearing in the Google One app on Android.

From June 20, 2024, VPN by Google One will no longer be available.

On a support page, Google details how to uninstall the VPN from macOS and Windows, as well as how to delete your VPN profile on Android and iOS. It’s noted that users will need to turn off the VPN from the One app under the “Benefits” tab.

Google Fi will continue to offer its VPN service, and Pixel phones are also getting updated VPN functionality. Pixel 7, 7 Pro, 7a, and Fold will get an update on June 3 – likely the monthly security patch – that brings “VPN by Google” which will be built into the OS. Pixel 8 and newer already have this implementation, though they will also presumably be updated to remove the connection to the Google One app.
