Just some two months back in May, Opera had launched an unlimited VPN app for iOS; all coming at no cost. And now, Opera is extending this equally to all Android devices.
The name for this jolly Android philanthropy is Opera Free VPN. There is difference between this and the other VPN app called Opera Max. The Opera Free VPN doesn’t in anyway compress the traffic of the user or anything like that. It is just one standard VPN app, but this time coming with an awoof intonation being free with unlimited traffic.
As said, this VPN protection really needs no subscription. Though this time, it comes with a number of tweaks. To start with, it presents a Wi-Fi test tool that will inform you the extent of security of the wireless network you are presently connected. So when it gets an A, all is rocking fine. It gets pretty bad when the rating turns an F, well, then it is best you waste no time further quickly jumping off it at once – or better still resort to Opera’s VPN.
This runs check on “whether the Wi-Fi network is public or private, if it’s encrypted, how many other devices share the same connection, if the IP address and the location are exposed, and if others can monitor or sniff your device details”, going by the explanation from Opera.
In addition to the first tweak, the Guardian feature will bring in the capacity to block ad trackers from “stalking you online” while you are on a connection to the Opera VPN.
According to the default operation, the app makes a connection between you and whichever of virtual locations (like US, Netherlands etc.) is closer to your real location, but you then you still have the option of choosing another if you so desire.
You can find it in the Google Play Store.
