Data savings and turbo mode

We shrink the web content your device receives to a fraction of its original size. You get all the videos, photos and text that you normally would, but you eat up less data and load pages faster.

With data savings on your phone, you can browse longer without worrying about going over your data limit. If you're traveling, you can easily conserve your roaming data.

Or, if you're on your laptop, turn on turbo mode to speed up slow connections at the coffeehouse and load pages faster when there's too many people trying to connect to the Wi-Fi.

Data savings is available in these apps:

Pick between two savings modes – high and extreme – and use up to 90% less data.

How does it work?

The pages you visit go through one of our servers. The server identifies pieces of the page that can be compressed. It shaves off image pixels and corrects video buffering. Then, it sends back these smaller-sized pieces to your device.

What about my privacy?

We take privacy very seriously, no matter how you are using our products.

Depending on the Opera product you are using, your connections to secure websites may either be made directly without using turbo compression, or they may be made via our turbo compression servers.

With most of our products, if you browse a secure site with turbo mode enabled, like your bank or email, we get out of the way. Your secure data is sent directly between your device and the site. With video, we can tell a site to change the bitrate that streams to your device, but we can't look at what you're streaming.

In Opera Mini for Android or Opera for Android when data savings are enabled, our servers connect to secure websites and your device connects securely to our servers. Our servers make sure your device knows whether the website connection can be made securely or not. This is done solely to compress all of the content going to your device (including the secure content). Your privacy is still respected.

To improve services, we log some information: your IP address and user agent, the address of the pages you visit and timestamps. For secure websites, we only log the site's hostname and port number, instead of the full address. We may keep this info for up to six months.
