Opera has announced the launch of an in-built unlimited VPN on the Opera Browser for Android app. This comes as a news from Opera after they announced in a blog post that a new VPN service is coming to its Browser for Android. According to Opera, you need not to worry about installing a separate app before you can use the VPN service.
Access to the VPN is completely free and unlimited. This is unlike other VPN providers that request for money when a certain amount of data is used.
How does Opera Browser VPN work?
The VPN works just like other VPNs that you have used in the past. Once you enable the VPN service, it will hide your real IP address with a virtual IP, making you anonymous online. Websites won’t be able to track your location and identify your device.
You can switch between regions like Europe, America, and Asia. There’s also an Optimal Mode which lets the VPN choose the best and fast connection for your location.
You can also enable your search engine to bypass the VPN and detect your region for more relevant search results. In addition, you can enable the VPN for incognito tabs only.
Opera said its VPN is a no-log service — the company won’t collect information that goes through network servers, which is a good news for privacy cautious users. Opera is still testing this feature and said that it will roll out to their Beta users in the next few weeks.
