It doesn’t matter how helpful the internet has become for all of us, it still runs the risk of compromising our private information to third parties. For that the Opera web browser is offering free online VPN (virtual private network) that will protect the vital information of their users who are highly concerned about their privacy.
“Now, you don’t have to download VPN extensions or pay for VPN subscriptions to access blocked websites and to shield your browsing when on public Wi-Fi,”
Announced by the company in one of their blog posts.
The underlying purpose of VPN is to change the route of a particular internet user through various servers scattered all over the globe, hence making it almost impossible for the government body and hackers for tracking users.
As a result, VPN enables access to particular websites that may be off-limits in certain parts of the world.
According to the research carried out by Opera itself, more than half a billion internet users have tried to use or are already using VPNs, and the majority of such users are young adults.
If you also want to use this free VPN service, click here and turn this feature on from the preference menu.
I believe this is an outstanding move by Opera for toppling Chrome and Mozilla in this business. Previously, there was ad-blocking software designed by Opera and now free VPN are all integrated into one source.
There is a possibility that this latest function may inevitably become prevalent in the near future. Since ad-blocking software has already managed to capture a large market, it’s only going to be a matter of time before all browsers start offering free VPN for their traffic.
Feel free to add anything that we may have missed regarding this topic, we look forward to hearing from you.
