Opera Just Launched Its New Free VPN
The Opera browser for desktop has a free VPN service since 2016, and soon, the same resource will be released in the browser version for Android as well. As now can test this feature in the Opera Beta which is available in the Google Play Store.
Basically, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) covers the IP of your device using the address of a server, making the connection appear to originate elsewhere. Hence, this connection is encrypted, the VPN simply helps to protect your data, which is an advantageous feature when you access a public Wi-Fi network.
Moreover, the well-known Norwegian software company Opera Software points out that in its browsers, VPN feature is offered without registration, hence, there will be no collection of any data that is carried by the service network or tracking browsing habits for commercial purposes.
It is not yet possible to use VPN mode in the final version of Opera for Android. For now, the feature only appears in the beta version of the browser, but if you want to use then in beta version you must enable it in the settings.

In the same settings, you can also select the virtual location of your connection. The options are Optimal (the service selects the most optimized location for your connection), Europe, America, and Asia. While the manual selection is useful when you try to access a site that only works in the United States.

Now apart from all these benefits of a VPN, you have to keep in mind that, due to the traffic directives, access performance can drop considerably, especially if your internet connection is not the fastest one.
However, currently, there is no plan for making the feature available in the final version of the browser. As the well-known Norwegian software company Opera Software stated that the feature will be under test for some time only. So, what do you think about this?
