Opera on Tuesday launched a free and unlimited Opera VPN (Virtual Private Network) for Android. Now, you don’t have to be worried about privacy, and no need to download VPN extensions or pay for VPN subscriptions to access blocked websites.
The idea behind bringing this important privacy feature marks another step in building a browser that fulfills people’s expectations in 2016. Opera provided Gadgets 360 with a copy of the VPN application a little before the launch, and we also got to try it out for a little while.
According to Opera’s official blog, “We have incorporated a Viking in the app. The Vikings didn’t care about borders, and they sure weren’t afraid of public Wi-Fi! And with the right tools, they stayed safe. The Opera VPN app can help unlock online borders and is the closest thing to a Viking shield today’s mobile users have for virtual self-protection.”
Opera already have the native ad blocker. And, now introducing another major feature in just a matter of a few weeks: – a native, unlimited and free VPN client, right inside your mobile browser. A report by Global Web Index, more than half a billion people (24% of the world’s internet population) have tried or are currently using VPN services.
According to the research, young people are leading the way when it comes to VPN usage, with almost one third of people between 16-34 having used a VPN.
Normally, all the VPN services and proxy services are based on the paid subscription. That’s why opera wanted to provide free VPN service to its user’s to be used by everyone.
Want to give a try just head over to Google Play today and get install the new app, Opera VPN for Android. It has no data limits and requires neither a log-in nor a subscription.
