Google is introducing a new banner in the Play Store for VPN apps to indicate that they have undergone an independent security review. This is part of Google's efforts to keep the Play Store safe for users and developers. The banner will provide users with a simplified view of which apps have been validated against global security standards. Users can also find additional technical assessment details in the App Validation Directory to make more informed decisions about VPN apps. VPN providers like NordVPN, Google One, and ExpressVPN have already undergone independent security testing.
