My Flow is your stream of files, links, notes and images you share with yourself built into Opera Touch. You can access it from the browser’s main screen by swiping from left to right. We built it after noticing that people were using messengers to send notes to themselves. My Flow also connects with the Opera browser on your desktop, keeping your browsers in perfect sync.

The good news is, you can now add extra protection to My Flow on iOS. In settings, you can click Protect access to My Flow and choose whether you want it to be locked after 15 minutes or always. Once you switch it on – My Flow will ask you for your fingerprint or Face ID before unlocking it.
