The Fi VPN is currently available for all phones compatible with Fi, and is included in all Fi plans. The VPN lets you stream, browse and download on an encrypted, private connection. It helps shield you against hackers on unsecure networks (like public Wi-Fi), and prevents websites from using your IP address to track your location.
Most apps will connect through the VPN, but some apps may bypass the VPN in order to work as intended (for example, so your smart home devices can work). You can manage this setting in the Fi app. Note that apps critical to Fi services will always connect outside the VPN.
VPNs use mobile data for encryption and network optimizations. To learn more about the Google Fi VPN, visit our Help Center.
Yes. All Fi plans come with protection against unwanted calls, robocalls and scams.
You can turn on spam blocking in the “Privacy and security” settings page of the Fi app to stop suspected spam calls and robocalls. You can also choose to block specific numbers from calling and texting.
Fi also automatically verifies that your incoming calls are coming from a legitimate source. Scammers can spoof numbers to make it appear that their call is coming from your area code or a number similar to yours. To protect you against these types of spam and robocalls, Fi labels verified numbers with a check mark in your caller ID using STIR/SHAKEN technology.
In order for numbers to be verified, both parties must be on a carrier network that has implemented STIR/SHAKEN.

Your Google Fi number is tied to your Google Account, which means you get extra layers of account security as a Fi user. This helps protect you from threats like SIM swap attacks, which is when your number is ported out to someone else's SIM card without your knowledge or consent. Your Google Account also provides protections like a robust account recovery process, as well as notifications for suspicious activity. You can also enable 2-Step Verification to reduce the risk of bad actors stealing your number and information. To learn more, visit our Help Center.
Yes. Family features come included in all Fi plans at no extra cost.
As a parent on Fi, you can create a data budget to decide how much data your child can use before it slows down.
If your child uses an Android phone, you can also choose to only allow phone numbers on their contact list to call, text, and leave voicemails. You can also easily set up Family Link from the Fi app to set digital ground rules, including content filters, screen time limits, and more.
