Governments around the world, from China to UK, have become increasingly restrictive with Internet users, passing laws on which websites you can visit and persecuting people for online comments.
Opera has long offered a way around this issue on the desktop, offering a free built-in VPN which offers secure and anonymous access to the internet.
Now Opera is rolling out a new update for its Android app that brings VPN support for all the users. The company released a beta update for mobile users last month and is now bringing it to the public. The latest update also bumps the app to v51.
The VPN will allow users to connect to three broad geographic locations namely, Asia, Europe, and America. Not only that, but Opera has also added an Optimal Location option for users who don’t want a specific location and are more concerned about the speed. Opera has also confirmed that the company won’t be keeping a log so it won’t be possible to identify users based on their online activity.
The feature is now to the public. Opera is currently the only major browser that supports VPN on Android. Unfortunately, the company didn’t disclose a timeline for iOS. If you want to try the feature right now then you can head to the Google Play Store and download the update for the app.
