Opera integrated VPN technology in their desktop browser and iOS apps earlier this year. The best part is, users will get unlimited access for free. This VPN service from Opera is going to put pressure on many paid VPN service providers. Now Opera is bringing VPN technology in Android as well, called Opera Free VPN.
Opera Free VPN is a separate app to the company’s web browser, and will apply the new location settings cross your entire device and other apps. The app has a “Quick Button” to hide your location, which will set default to the nearest available location. You can also lock your location to a specific region, either Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Singapore, or the United States, and disable cookies from tracking your data. Opera VPN will get more countries in their location list soon.
With Opera Free VPN, you get:
• One of the fastest, most reliable VPN services
• Unblocked access via your choice of five virtual locations (with more coming soon)
• The ability to determine WiFi network security level, as well as connection encryption and protection from threats
• A built-in ad tracker blocker to stop advertisers from following you around the web
Opera’s VPN is powered SurfEasy, the same company Opera acquired last year. The app is completely free and comes with ads as expected. Opera also wants to share anonymous data about your mobile usage and browsing habits with third parties. If you’re concerned, here’s what Opera has to say about the data it collects:
“This information is made available to third parties who are interested in better understanding the mobile ecosystem and how it’s evolving. It’s important to understand that this is not data about what you do with your phone, but rather this is data about how a large group of people use their phones.”
If the anonymous mobile usage sharing is not a concern for you, you can download the app for free from the Play Store via the button below.
