To activate the free VPN for the first time, enable it in Menu -> Settings -> Privacy -> VPN. From now on you will see an icon on the address bar showing VPN status. Simply click on it to trigger VPN service on and off. You can then select your desired virtual location and also see stats on the data used.

Opera’s VPN can also be used in a private browsing window.

Reduces online tracking

With Opera’s VPN turned on, your IP address will be replaced with a virtual one, making it harder for websites to track your location and identify your computer. Many tracking cookies will also be blocked.

Use a VPN now

Because Opera's browser VPN is built right in, you are able to use it immediately and don't need to download a VPN extension. Get Opera's easy to use browser VPN free of charge when you download the Opera browser.

To enable VPN in Opera:

  1. Go to your Settings (Alt+P).
  2. Select Advanced in the left sidebar, and click Features.
  3. Under VPN, toggle on Enable VPN.

When you enable VPN, you'll see a VPN badge to the left of your address and search bar. Click on the badge and you will be shown an on/off switch, information about the amount of data transferred, your virtual location, and your virtual IP address. There, you can also switch VPN server locations to switch virtual IP addresses. Enjoy the best free VPN built into your Opera browser.

Shield your browsing in public networks

Surfing on free, public Wi-Fi in airports, cafes, and event venues is a treat, but it can also be a danger. Using VPN shields your activity from being sniffed out by other users sharing the network.

Search locally while on VPN

Disguising your IP address throws off trackers from knowing your location, but your online search results can be influenced as well. Not so with Opera’s VPN! It offers an automatic way for your online searches to bypass your virtual location to your actual location, giving you relevant results - then, you can continue to your target destination over VPN.

Opera's Free VPN service

The best things in life are free, and your privacy and security should be no exception. While free VPNs may be hard to come by, Opera proves that it is still possible to have a secure VPN browser without having to pay and without browser extensions.

How a virtual private network protects you

When you connect to a website without a VPN, the website can see your IP address. However, when using a VPN connection, internet traffic is encrypted and routed through a remote server so the website sees the address of the server, rather than yours. This is especially useful when you get internet access through public Wi-Fi or have an internet connection that is accessed by other devices. The Opera VPN server locations allow you to choose a location that is optimal for you and your internet service provider.
