IN BRIEF

Opera becomes the first web browser to offer a built-in Free, unlimited and 256-bit encrypted VPN service for everyone.

Opera's Free VPN protects unencrypted browser session from leaking on public WiFi networks and will also let unblock firewalls to improve privacy and security.


Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have become an important tool not just for large companies, but also for individuals to improve web privacy, dodge content restrictions and counter growing threat of cyber attacks.

Opera has released an updated desktop version of its web browser with a Free built-in VPN service to keep you safe on the Internet with just a click.

That's a great deal!

For those unfamiliar, VPNs are easy security and privacy tools that route your Internet traffic through a distant connection, protecting your browsing, hiding your location data and accessing restricted resources.

Free VPN Service with Unlimited Data Usage

Unlike several other free VPN services, Opera's built-in free VPN service will offer you unlimited data usage as well. You just have to turn on a virtual switch in the Settings menu to enable the feature.

So you required to install no third-party extensions, pay no monthly fee as well as set no limit on data usage.


"By adding a free, unlimited VPN directly into the browser, no additional download or extensions from an unknown third-party provider are necessary," Opera's engineering chief Krystian Kolondra wrote in a blog post.

"So, today, our Opera desktop users get a handy way to boost their online privacy, as well as easier access to all their favorite online content no matter where they are."


Opera's Free VPN Offers 256-bit Encryption

Opera's Free VPN service uses 256-bit encryption to hide all your connection details and replaces your IP address with a virtual one, making it difficult for the government or anyone to trace your location, identify your computer or block content they do not want you to see.

The free VPN feature in Opera has been made possible after the company acquired VPN provider SurfEasy last year.


Here's How to Try Opera's Free VPN

To give Opera's Free VPN a try, install the latest developer version of Opera for Windows and Mac, look for the 'Privacy & Security' tab and toggle this feature ON.

Since Operas Free VPN service is available in the latest developer version of Opera, the service lets you switch between three virtual locations: The United States, Canada, and Germany.

However, the company says it will add more countries in the stable version of its browser.

I always liked Opera. On the low they were the originator for a ton of stuff that are commonplace in browsers. They fell too far behind but this could be an interesting addition (if free).

Been using opera as my daily driver for almost a decade! Options and configuration wise, nothing comes close, although they've taken some stuff away, its still shoulders above the rest in that category!

I used to use opera on my blackberry. It was way better than the stock browser they had. Loaded up pages way faster.

I'd rather use my own VPN and proxy chain that actually has reviews/PP/TOS. As well as a browser that forces auto-update (even though that is a hassle sometimes Sandboxed), has tab-isolation, updates and forces updates to the sh*ttiest of sh*t amongst other 0day exploited web product...Flash.

But 'Surfeasy' and let your fat lady sing Opera.

Which vpn are you using?^


seems with anything that is free, you are the product. Unless they are new, they will eventually have to charge for service
