Opera has brought a new Opera for android update that supports in-biult VPN without having to download and install any third party VPN like Hotspot shield, HidemeVPN, Windscribe and more.
As they have started testing this new feature which is expected to start rolling out soon for all android users. The inbuilt VPN has been available for Opera Desktop browser for a while now and now its coming to Android users.
This exciting new feature in Opera for Android 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.
The reason why we are including this built-in VPN in our Android browser is because it gives you that extra layer of protection that you are searching for in your daily mobile browsing.
The VPN features unlimited use with no data cap. By comparison, other free VPNs usually allot a certain amount of free data use before charging money for further use.
How does it work?
Once you enable the feature, the 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.
The VPN is a no-log service, which means that we will not collect any information that travels through the network servers. This will keep your private data protected from intruders when you’re connected to a public Wi-Fi network.
The tests for the built-in VPN will continue for some time with a gradual rollout to our beta users. We suggest for you to keep an eye on the news about Opera for more information about it.
