What’s going on?
Unfortunately, public WiFi is often not as secure or reliable as we would like it to be. That’s why it’s important to use a VPN when connecting to public WiFi networks. A VPN encrypts your traffic and routes it through a private server, ensuring that your data is safe from prying eyes.
But does ExpressVPN work on public WiFi? Yes! In fact, we recommend using ExpressVPN whenever you connect to public WiFi, in order to keep your data safe and secure.
What is WiFi Calling?
WiFi calling is a feature that allows you to make phone calls using a Wi-Fi connection instead of your cellular network. This can be especially helpful if you’re in an area with weak or no cell service. As long as there’s a strong Wi-Fi signal, you’ll be able to place and receive calls just like you would on your regular cell phone.
Do I Need a VPN for WiFi Calling?
A VPN, or virtual private network, encrypts your internet connection and can help protect your privacy online. However, because WiFi calling uses your device’s IP address instead of your phone number, there’s no need to use a VPN when making calls over Wi-Fi. Your location will still be visible to the person you’re talking to (unless you’re using an app like Snapchat that obscures your location), but your traffic will be encrypted and secure from any potential eavesdroppers.

One option is to use a router that supports VPNs and connect it to your Google Wifi point. This will allow all devices connected to the router to use the VPN.
Another option is to use an app like TunnelBear or PIA which will create a VPN on your device. These apps must be installed on every device that you want to use the VPN with and will only work when that device is connected to your Google Wifi network.
Either of these options will add an extra layer of security and privacy to your internet usage, so consider giving them a try!
