Last week, Google announced its own VPN service. Trusting Google's VPN would be like trusting a VPN from the NSA. Here's why giving Google direct access to all your online activity is a terrible idea:

@protonvpn Google: "we have used our
expertise in privacy, cryptography, and infrastructure to build a Google-grade VPN that provides
additional security and privacy"


@t0k It does have its uses, though. Using a VPN (regardless of whether it is Google or Proton behind it) can upgrade a user's security, especially in instances where you have to connect to an insecure network. However, saying that it will improve users' privacy is indeed a big joke. I agree with @protonmail that this could potentially be another attempt from Google to have complete access to all of your online activity.

@protonvpn Well, technically Google already provided a VPN service for over 5 years as part of the Project Fi (seems to be called Google Fi now).

@protonvpn Those guys at Google sure know how to crack a joke. 😆

@protonvpn Sweet Mary mother of god, please tell me this is just a copy of an Onion article 🎃

@retroartdt We'd also prefer if it was just a bad joke, but it looks like this is true...
