The Nexus Google+ page shared some good news for Nexus users this morning. Project Fi’s Wifi Assistant will soon roll out to all Nexus devices and no longer be restricted to Project Fi users only. The WiFi Assistant allows you to automatically and securely connect to more than a million, free open Wi-Fi hotspots with no user interaction required. Being a Project Fi user, I’ve found my phone connected to WiFi locations quite frequently without even realizing I had entered a restaurant or other location offering Free WiFi.
Wi-Fi Assistant encrypts each connection made so users don’t have to worry about having their security compromised when switching over from a cellular to WiFi network. A small key icon appears in your notification bar indicating the connection to a VPN.
