Opera Adds a Free VPN to its Android Browser App

Opera’s Free VPN is Back!

Opera is a secure and innovative browser used by millions around the world. It is the first browser-maker who bundle a VPN with its service. But last year, Opera closed down its VPN app for iOS and Android  called Opera VPN, and it appeared as though it was gone forever. However, Opera’s free VPN is back. This time, Opera is adding its free, unlimited VPN to its Android browser so Android users no longer need to download an extra app to use the VPN service. Opera’s VPN can help people bypass any Internet censorship and shield browsing when on public Wi-Fi. It adds an extra layer of privacy protection. It is not clear if or when Opera will bring the VPN to its iOS app, but Opera’s desktop browser includes one.

How to Get Opera Browser Beta for Android?

To try it out, you’ll need to download the Opera browser beta, which is separate from the Opera browser. Once you install it on your phone, tap the “O” icon on the bottom right corner of the screen, tap Settings, and flip the VPN toggle from Disabled to Enabled. Inside the VPN tab there are a couple of options for limiting VPN to private tabs, choosing a virtual location, and bypassing it for search engines, as well as a snapshot of how much data has been transferred, but mostly it offers automatic protection with virtually no fuss. You don’t even need to sign in to an Opera account to start using it.
