It is not clear why the app has been removed from the ‌App Store‌ at this time, and we've asked both Google and Apple for an explanation.

The app's disappearance comes just a day after Google brought its Google One VPN service to ‌iPhone‌ and ‌iPad‌ users. The VPN functionality is available as part of Google One Premium, priced at $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year.

Update: The Google One app is once again available for download from the ‌App Store‌. There is no word on why it was temporarily missing.

Hahah! What a joke Google tried to play. I'm so glad I didn't download this unprotected VPN service. I just felt like a bunch of data and privacy was at work. It looked sketchy since the beginning.
What does this even mean?

VPN companies can’t access your data. That’s the whole point of a VPN. Absolute security.
You don't actually believe that do you? You're routing all of your internet traffic through a company's servers, of course they can see your data if they want to. Your ISP might not be able to see your traffic, but the VPN company sure can. Some VPN companies are just better at protecting your privacy and purposely not collecting certain data, but knowing Google, they're going to collect as much as they can.
