We can’t help but love Opera despite not using the company’s web browser on a regular basis. Why is that? Well, the company launched a new version of its Opera web browser, and guess what? It comes with free, built-in VPN.
This version of the Opera web browser comes in the form of the developer preview and there will definitely be bugs among other things, so for now, it will be best to keep an eye out and not use it as your main web browser by any means.
You might need a full-dedicated VPN to be sure you’re safe while browsing. Secure yourself now by installing Cyberghost (currently 50% off on all plans), a leader in the VPN market. It protects your PC from attacks while browsing, masks your IP address and blocks all unwanted access and it is compatible with all the browsers and antiviruses.
A VPN is used to visit blocked websites and hide IP addresses when over public Wi-Fi. With it built-in, users won’t ever have to download a VPN plugin or even pay for VPN because Opera is offering unlimited use of the service.
Opera is the first web browser to deliver free and unlimited VPN as an important part of its feature set. If it takes off, the competition will no doubt follow suit with their own offerings in the months to come.
“We are the first major browser maker to integrate an unlimited and free VPN or virtual private network. Now, you don’t have to download VPN extensions or pay for VPN subscriptions to access blocked websites and to shield your browsing when on public Wi-Fi,” according to the Opera blog.
Today, 24% of the world’s population are using VPN to access various services on the web. If it is not content blocked by a country’s firewall, then it is for the purpose of gaining access to entertainment services such as Netflix, Hulu and more.
While the idea of free and unlimited VPN is a good idea, it probably won’t get rid of paid options. We’re certain when this system is overloaded with users, it won’t be fast enough to load videos on Hulu without constant buffering.
