The desktop Opera browser isn't the first choice that comes to mind in the industry of Internet-visiting tools, but the team behind it has been working hard in the last year or so to remedy this. After introducing a handy compression algorithm and a built-in ad blocker not long ago, it now takes browsing security and privacy at a whole new level, embedding unlimited VPN, all for free.
Yep, you heard that right - everyone with the Opera browser can enable the built-in Virtual Private Network absolutely free of charge, and with no limit on the amount of data that can stream through its servers that mask the user's IP address, so they can stream georestricted YouTube content, for instance. This welcome feature is now coming to mobile, too, as Opera just introduced a free unlimited VPN app for iOS devices today.
As per Chris Houston, President of Surfeasy, Opera’s VPN division: “Every day, millions of people, from students to working people, find that social-media sites like Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook are blocked when they surf on their campus or workplace Wi-Fi. The same goes for video-streaming sites. With the new Opera VPN app, we help people to break down the barriers of the web and enjoy the internet like it should be.” Word.
