It's time to switch to Opera
You know when you don't want to do something, like go out, but a friend makes you and then you're really glad you did. This is one of those situations.
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.
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:
- Go to your Settings (Alt+P).
- Select Advanced in the left sidebar, and click Features.
- 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.
Opera’s VPN works within the browser
Because Opera’s free VPN service is built into the browser, it keeps the browsing you do within Opera private, but does not apply to your internet use outside of the Opera browser.
