Opera pulled out the free VPN app for Android a few months ago. Many of the users of the service were disappointed with the rollback of the app from the Google Play Store. But now, the company has released an update to the Opera Browser for Android, which will have integrated Free VPN service. The users will not have to install a separate app to enable the VPN service but can access the same directly from the browser itself. The Free VPN option is available on the Desktop version of the application, but this is the first time smartphone users are getting access of the same.
The feature is available in the desktop version of the Opera Browser from almost two years. But it surprises for smartphone users to have a free VPN integrated into the browser itself. The users will be able to use free VPN with the Opera for Android Version 51. The update with the integration is already rolled out, and the users can download the same from Google Play Store. The option of Free VPN is only for the Opera Browser for Android and not for the Opera Mini Browser.
The feature is in public beta testings from last month. The users who’ve enrolled for beta mode received the feature one month before the regular users. The Opera Free VPN uses the 256-Bit encryption to obscure the device IP and location. With the user using VPN service, his/her browsing location is changed, and he/she can quickly access the websites that won’t work in the country or are blocked by the government. The Opera Free VPN for Android comes with the option to choose the server location for browsing or automatically select the best server. Currently, the free version does come with options like Europe, America, and Asia.
