While, VPNs are prized for their enhanced privacy, and handling restricted online contents, as well as countering cyber-attacks.
Opera desktop browser, Opera 38 developer, is the latest edition of the web browser to feature a free in-built VPN service so as to ensure internet and information security.
Unlike most VPN and proxy servers which have been limited and based on a paid subscription, Opera's built-in VPN offers a free, unlimited, native VPN that just works out-of-the-box and doesn’t require any subscription, making VPNs available to everyone.
According to Krystian Kolondra, Opera’s engineering chief, "By adding a free, unlimited VPN directly into the browser, no additional downloads or extensions from an unknown third-party provider are necessary".
Opera’s built-in free VPN is pretty easy to use, Mac users just need to click the Opera menu, select “Preferences” and toggle VPN on, while Windows and Linux users need to go to the “Privacy and Security” section in “Settings” and enable VPN to activate.
