Opera browser for Android gets VPN in beta

Opera browser for Android gets VPN in beta

ISPs are generally not trustworthy, so many internet users have turned to VPNs. Opera used to offer a popular free VPN on Android, but it retired the service previous year.

For now, the VPN feature will be released in phases to Opera's beta users first with more details regarding its wider availability will only be announced at later date. It's starting out in the beta version, available to everyone in the Play Store. There's also an Optimal mode which lets the VPN choose the best connection for your location. That stymies your ISPs and advertisers that want to track your online activities. Since VPNs see all your traffic, it's important that you trust the provider. Opera says its new free VPN keeps zero logs.

Opera has been making browsers for desktop and mobile devices since 1995 and, although not as popular as some, it has introduced a number of pioneering features.

Locations are limited by region and you will have the option to connect to servers in Europe, America or Asia though you won't be able to choose an exact server location by country.

Opera claims it is offering the 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. However, the VPN is not going to be offered as a standalone app though.
