Secure connection

Easily accessible icons in the combined address and search bar give you important details about the page you are viewing: for example, if your connection is secure or when the page is accessing your location.

Fraud and malware protection

Opera's fraud and malware protection will immediately give you a big warning if you try to open a suspicious page that is blacklisted.

Block insecure active content

To keep you safe, Opera will pre-emptively block insecure active content, like scripts or plug-ins, on secure pages you're viewing.

Private browsing

With private browsing in Opera, you can have all the history, cache and cookies removed from the computer as soon as you close all the private windows - it's especially useful if you browse on a shared computer.

Auto update

Opera automatically upgrades to the newest version, making sure you don't miss the latest stability and security improvements.


Want to tailor your secure browsing even further? Check the extensions in the Privacy and security category in our add-ons catalog.
