Google Brings Enhanced Network Features to Project Fi

Thankfully, with a new feature called enhanced network, this should be a thing of the past as Project Fi is extending its VPN to all data connections. On top of that, Google confirmed that it won't be able to see a Project Fi user's online activity neither since its VPN is designed so that traffic isn't tied to a Google account or phone number.

The VPN service also promises to be fast. But this functionality is being updated so that you'll have a seamless connection as you move from Wi-Fi coverage to cellular (and the reverse). In addition, it can detect when your Wi-Fi connection is weak.

Fi already uses a VPN service by default to protect users when they're connected to any of the nearly two million supported Wi-Fi hotspots.
