App- Opera browser VPN


If you value your privacy, then you need a VPN. Many of us associate with VPN only when the government has shut down social media. Well, opera has come up with a very free and private browser known as opera VPN. The Norwegian company already owns its own VPN service in SurfEasy.
Once you have installed the app, one has to open up a Private Window, then click the VPN button located on the left-hand side of the address box at the top. This opens up a dropdown menu where you can switch on the service and choose where you want your connection to end. It also shows your current IP address and how much data you have used on the service in the current month. If you are unsure you need a paid-for, unlimited VPN service, it might be worth giving this a try just to see how much data you actually use. Since the service is operated by the same VPN company that Opera also operates, the Opera VPN has many of the same core features and limitations. There is no kill switch capability, for instance, so if the service drops out you are going to be left exposed. But assuming that it operates under the same set of policies as SurfEasy, it will not keep any logs of your online activity. Which is nice. The Opera VPN is not the last word in privacy or security, then, but it is ultra convenient and completely free.
