Opera is building free VPN services into its browser

If you’re not currently using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) service, Opera is making it easier by building a free VPN service baked into its browser. The feature is currently available from its developer channel version and is a VPN proxy service that allows you to surf the web as if you’re virtually travel to USA, Canada or Germany. This allows you to access restricted content and make it harder for websites to track you.

Until now, most VPN services and proxy servers have been limited and based on a paid subscription. With a free, unlimited, native VPN that just works out-of-the-box and doesn’t require any subscription, Opera wants to make VPNs available to everyone.

Opera developer browser is a free download. To activate VPN after install, go to Preferences from Opera menu and check to turn on VPN. 

Please note that Opera’s VPN only protects web traffic from inside the browser. It is not a replacement for full service VPN that protects all web traffics from other browsers and apps.
