Is it/will it be possible to connect nest wifi points to VPNs?

I'm rather concerned across the board about cybersecurity, as I would imagine many others here are. I use VPNs on nearly all my devices, but I'd very much like to be able to hook my wifi directly to it as well, for an extra layer of security (especially for those devices on which I can't directly use a VPN). It's my understanding that some routers allow you to set up VPN connections right within them, but I wasn't sure if that was possible with nest wifi. Is there a way to set up a VPN connection with the nest wifi points themselves? If not - seeing as cybersecurity is increasingly becoming such an important topic, now perhaps more than ever - will there ever be compatibility for VPNs through nest wifi points?

Hi slideback26,

Sorry, no it's not currently possible to add a VPN directly on Google Nest WiFi.

This is a community forum supported by other users and community specialist's so we can't answer questions about what Google might do in the future because we just don't know.

The best advice I can offer is leaving feedback through the methods linked below as this actually gets to the people that can make changes or add features but unfortunately they don't reply to questions.
