Google One's VPN is pretty okay, according to independent auditors

There are a lot of VPN services that claim god-like powers of privacy and security, with perhaps less than compelling evidence to back up those claims. No one doubts Google's technical ability to create a virtual private network, but given the company's status first and foremost as an advertiser, you'd be forgiven for being skeptical of the VPN built into the Google One service. According to an independent audit, it's pretty okay. Which is nice.

Your internet service provider can't tell what sites you visit (only that you're using a VPN) or inject content into webpages.
