The latest version of the Opera Developer browser now offers a free VPN and unlimited, to secure connections or circumvent geographic blockages. This was made possible by their acquisition last year of SurfEasy, a VPN provider.
After proposing an ad blocker last March, Opera strikes again by integrating a totally free VPN with no speed limit. It is currently integrated only in the version of Opera reserved for developers, but it should logically make its appearance also in the general public version.
As a reminder, the VPN allow to do transit communications, usually from encrypted way, by servers that bridge the gap between the sites visited, and the end user.
To learn more, watch this tutorial: VPN how to use ? And look at this article to choose a best VPN.
To activate Opera VPN, go to " Settings -> Privacy & Security ", Then tick the box" EnableVPN ". From this moment, a small orange button "VPN" appears in the address bar. By pressing it, you can then quickly activate or deactivate the VPN.
You can also choose a country of location. At the moment, only Germany, the United States and Canada are offered.
Note that Opera's built-in VPN protects your browser's web session. But not surfing outside your browser, of course.
