Opera Software ASA, makers of the Opera web browser have released a completely free and unlimited iPhone VPN solution. Opera VPN makes it possible to change your virtual location, which can unblock content and prevent trackers from following your web browsing. Typically, using unlimited data over a VPN service requires a subscription cost. Opera VPN seeks to change this model.
Once installed, Opera VPN provides anonymous web browsing and access to content that's blocked in your region just like any VPN service. The difference is that Opera is offering access to its super-fast VPN servers and premium features completely free of charge. Opera recently added this free VPN service to its desktop browser as well.
VPNs or Virtual Private Networks are often used by employees to securely access company networks from outside of the office. Using a VPN makes it possible to circumvent censorship and regional content restrictions, protect one's location and personal identity, and secure wireless transactions over the web.
Opera describes the Opera VPN app as follows:- One of the fastest, most reliable VPN services
- Unblocked access via your choice of five virtual locations (with more coming soon)
- A built-in ad blocker for ads in Safari, Chrome and other apps
- A built-in tracker blocker to enhance online privacy
Opera has been working on web browsers, such as Opera Mini and its desktop Opera browser for 20 years now. Opera VPN service is provided by SurfEasy, an Opera company.
