WHAT IS A VPN?
A VPN is often used to spoof a location online. For example, most people use VPNs to make it seem like they are based in the United states to access sites like Netflix.
Now the Internet company is offering the same offerings for FREE.
Chris Houston, the president of Opera’s SurfEasy VPN division said,
“The Opera VPN app for Android sets itself apart from other VPNs by offering a completely free service without a data limit, no login required, advanced WiFi protection features and no need for a subscription,”
The app which is 46MB in size takes only a few seconds to set up.
You can also choose from five different regions, including the US, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, and Singapore.
While the service itself is free to use, you’ll find ads, and Opera will share anonymized data about your mobile usage habits with third parties:
This information is made available to third parties who are interested in better understanding the mobile ecosystem and how it’s evolving. It’s important to understand that this is not data about what you do with your phone, but rather this is data about how a large group of people use their phones.
