Opera Software has started testing a new built-in browser VPN, or virtual private network, feature in the Opera for Android browser.
Beta users around the world are among the first ones to test Opera's free, unlimited and no-log VPN feature.
This new feature is designed to empower you with increased control and privacy of your browsing. You no longer need to download separate, paid-for apps to shield your browsing when on public Wi-Fi. Just tap on “Settings” in your Opera browser and activate VPN.
Once you enable the feature, Opera's 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.
Moreover, the VPN is a no-log service, which means that we will not collect any information that travels through the network servers.
Previously, Opera became the first major browser maker to integrate an unlimited and free VPN into the desktop browser.
Most recently, Opera also introduced the cookie dialog blocker, which blocks pop-ups displayed on websites that ask for your consent before you can access them, thus breaking the web experience.
