Opera and SurfEasy VPN: The combo for online privacy
You care about online privacy. We do, too.
This year, we did a research among people who use Opera for computers. We found out that users are looking for enhanced privacy protection. But, they either don’t know how to add advanced privacy tools available, or they find them too complex to use. So, we are doing something about that.
What is a VPN?
The web consists of millions of public networks. You share and receive data with these networks to visit websites, send email or watch movies. Between you and the public network, there might be some snoops, malicious software or advertisers you would like to avoid. A VPN is a tool that reduces this distance between you and the service you use, making your connection private.
A VPN service allows you to create a private, encrypted connection between your computer and the service you visit. You can use it to guard a Wi-Fi network, to change an IP address, or to work remotely within a corporate network.
What is SurfEasy VPN?
SurfEasy VPN is a VPN service that brings you all these benefits. It encrypts all internet traffic coming in and out of your computer.
You can try SurfEasy VPN by downloading the free version with monthly data limits, or you can choose the full, paid version. It is available on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android, so you can use it on both desktop and smartphone.
SurfEasy is now part of the Opera family and there are more privacy advances to come from this new addition.
Privacy and synchronization options in Opera 32
Today, we released Opera 32. This latest version of Opera for computers not only brings you password synchronization and animated themes, but also a new privacy option.
When you open a private window, or click a security badge in the address field, you will find a download link for SurfEasy VPN.
If you want to protect your Wi-Fi hotspot, keep hackers and snoops away from your information or simply surf the web more safely, privately and anonymously, then SurfEasy is something you’ll want to check out.
