My Flow is your stream of 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 we noticed people were using messengers to send notes to themselves. 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 your Flow on iOS. By going to settings, you can click on the “Protect access to My Flow” feature 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 of Face ID for it to be unlocked.
