Opera has started testing a new built-in VPN in the Opera beta app for Android. According to Opera, there’s no need to download a separate app to get the VPN up and running — it’s built into the browser itself.
The built-in VPN has been available for the Opera Desktop browser for a while and now it’s for Android users too! The new VPN is being gradually rolled out to beta testers across the world and it is completely free without any log management and as has no usage cap either.
Once you enable the feature, the VPN will replace your IP address with a virtual IP address. This makes it harder for websites to track your location and identify your device.
You can pick between Europe, America, and Asia. There’s also an Optimal mode, which lets the VPN choose the best connection for your location.
You can also enable your search engine to bypass the VPN and detect your region for more relevant search results. Finally, you can enable the VPN for private tabs only.
Opera claims it is offering a free VPN to users in order to give them an extra layer of protection when it comes to browsing the Internet and prevent them from snooping.
Opera’s VPN is a no-log offering that means the information traveling through the virtual IP and the network servers is not collected, ensuring that privacy and security of users’ data are not endangered when they are connected to a public network.
