At Opera, they’re going for the gold. It wasn’t enough for them to add their own browser with an ad-blocker included by default. Or what about their extreme battery saving mode? Still not enough. Now they’ve come out with an independent VPN service app that’s totally accessible from for any user thanks to its precise interface, and the help of a friendly viking that guides you along this process. Who said that network management tools had to be so serious?
Opera first started gaining ground when they integrated a supposed VPN service into their browser. However, it turned out to be a mere Proxy with somewhat misleading branding as it relied on the services of SurfEasy, the company Opera bought out towards the start of 2015. In fact, they were in charge of releasing the app just as is stated on there ‘About’ section. Notwithstanding, this time around, they’ve completely severed old ties, and are all about promoting this VPN product as a solely Opera creation.
In terms of the apps functions, Opera VPN allows you to change your devices’ regional location at whim, thereby rendering the websites you visit unblockable due to the fact that you can connect from any number of locations from select countries like: Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Singapore, and the US.
