Poplar web browser Opera has come up with a latest feature, with the launch of a Virtual Private Network service built in to the latest version of its desktop app. The Opera VPN service once triggered establishes a secure encrypted connection with one of five Opera servers around the world. When activated, Opera VPN creates a secure connection with one of the five Opera servers globally.
To shed more light on this new launch, Krystian Kolondra, SVP of Opera browser for computers, said “We know that people are concerned about their privacy online and that the interest for VPN is increasing. However, two major obstacles are blocking people from using it: VPNs are too complicated to use, and they require a monthly subscription. Opera resolves both issues by introducing its free and easy-to-use service right into the browser.”
Outstanding Features– Secure 256-bit AES encryption, run in conjunction with Opera subsidiary SurfEasy, is a no-log service, meaning that neither partners store information about a user’s browsing history, the company says. Users can choose between routing their browser traffic between Germany, the Netherlands, Singapore, Canada and the United States, or they can opt to let Opera choose a location for them. Well not only this, additional enhancements to video pop-outs, the built-in newsreader, a battery saving mode, and Chromecast support were also implemented in Opera 40.
