We want you to browse freely, faster and safer. That’s why we added a browser VPN in our Opera browser for Android that improves your online privacy and security.

In this blog post, we provide five reasons why you should be using our browser VPN and explain how it boosts your online experience.

1. Enhanced privacy

Today, there are more than 650 million people using a VPN services around the world. A study presented by Global Web Index, showed that anonymity on the web is one of the main reasons why people use VPN services around the world.

This is the core of the Opera browser VPN. Once enabled, it creates a private connection between your mobile device and our VPN servers, hiding your physical location on the web and making it harder for website developers and malicious third parties to track your browsing activity. No more shame of your browsing and no more fear of web.

2. Data encryption

Think of the private connection between your device and our VPN servers that we mentioned above as a secret tunnel. What this tunnel does is that it encrypts all the traffic that goes in and out of your device. It uses a 256-bit encryption algorithm that drastically reduces the risk of third parties collecting sensitive pieces of your personal information.

3. Choose where to appear on the web

The browser VPN also gives you the choice of where to appear on the web when browsing. This is great when you are reaching content out of your region and it is also quite handy when you travel. Our browser VPN gives you the option to choose between three regions: Europe, America or Asia.

4. No-log

One of the coolest features of the Opera browser VPN is that it doesn’t log any data. What does this mean? It means that our VPN servers will not retain any activity data of your searches. Cool, isn’t it?

There are hundreds of VPN services across the Internet. In most cases, these services require you to download a new app and pay a monthly fee. The Opera browser VPN is free and it’s ready to be used. You can easily turn it in two steps. Go to the settings of the browser and then tap on VPN. That’s it! You are ready to browse safer now.
