Opera has announced that its Android browser, will be getting an in-built VPN. According to the company, they have started testing the feature and also rolling it out to beta testers. The built-in VPN is free, unlimited and has no-log VPN feature. Opera says the new feature is designed to empower users with increased control and privacy of your browsing.
The company, which became the first major browser maker to integrate an unlimited and free VPN into the desktop browser, is now doing the same with its Android browser.
Opera via a blog post wrote;
The reason why we are including this built-in VPN in our Android browser is because it gives you that extra layer of protection that you are searching for in your daily mobile browsing.
The Opera for Android browser team is aiming high: we want to have the best mobile browser in the market and provide you with a powerful tool that gives you control of how you browse the web.
Opera has a tradition of innovation. We are always thinking about new features that can enhance your online experience. Most recently, we introduced the cookie dialog blocker, which blocks annoying pop-ups displayed on websites that ask for your consent before you can access them, thus breaking the web experience. The built-in VPN is the next feature which, we believe will improve your online experience and safety.
How To ACtivate Opera Mobile Browser VPN
This is pretty simple as you just go to “Settings” in your Opera browser and activate VPN.
How does it work?
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. The app comes as a no-log service, meaning Opera will not collect any information that travels through the network servers. This will keep your private data protected from intruders when you’re connected to a public Wi-Fi network.
