How Opera protects you
You have the absolute right to privacy and security online. Opera's secure private browser is built to protect you, and your data, first and foremost. See below how we help you browse privately and securely, and avoid being tracked.
With Opera, your privacy and security come first
Opera’s ad blocker doesn’t just remove irritations and distractions online. If you’re on a limited data plan, ad blocker can save you a great amount of your mobile data. Slow page loading, even in the best private browser, is often the result of ads and the analytics code that accompanies them, so blocking them has a noticeable result. Most importantly, Opera’s ad blocker also stops the increasing number of malicious ads that can harm both your computer and your data security.
The tracker blocker in Opera does exactly that. Block known online trackers like analytic scripts, tracking pixels and other methods of data collection. Like Opera’s ad blocker, the tracker blocker helps pages load faster, saves your mobile data and further protects you from malicious code. Beyond that, tracking protection simply guards your privacy because your personal data should not be given away or used, especially without your consent.
A secure browser VPN may not be necessary at home, but it is definitely recommended for anyone using public Wi-Fi. Connecting to webpages through Opera’s VPN (virtual private network) means that the data sent back and forth is encrypted and routed through a remote server. The encryption helps secure your data from prying eyes, while the remote server disguises your IP address and location for more privacy. No extensions are necessary for a safe browser.
