opera-vpnHow Opera’s free VPN will benefit you

In September 2016, Opera released the latest version of their browser, Opera 40, to the general public. It contains an exciting feature which is not currently available in any other mainstream web browser, a native VPN.

 

So what is a VPN and how will it benefit me?

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a system that changes where the internet thinks you are located in the world. By using a VPN, you can curb pesky tracking cookies from following your every move online. You can also unlock location-based services that would not be normally available in your home country. Essentially, all the data that goes through the VPN is anonymous and secure, making surfing a safer experience.

 



Why should I use Opera VPN?

Firstly, the Opera browser VPN is completely free, and it is built into the browser itself. This means you don’t need to download any additional programs or sign up for any other web services to get the benefits of surfing via VPN. It also promises a secure and encrypted connection and there are no limits to the amount of data you can pass through it.

Opera 40 is compatible for Google Chromecast. This is great, because when you activate Opera VPN you select the United States and you have access to all the movies and series from the US Catalog.  Enjoy watching netflix movies with Opera VPN.

 

Great! How do I activate Opera VPN?

It is incredibly simple to get up and running. When you have the Opera browser open on your computer:

  • Click on “Settings” (or “Preferences” if using a Mac)
  • Click on “Privacy & Security”
  • Tick the “Enable VPN” box

That’s all there is to it! A VPN symbol appears in the Opera browser so you know everything is working correctly. You can choose from a list of countries from which to appear, or you can let Opera work out which of its servers will give you optimum speed and performance.
With this cost-free and straightforward addition to their browser, Opera have opened up free VPN browsing to the masses, making it completely accessible and easy to operate.
