Opera for Android adds free unlimited VPN so you can browse safer

From CNET: Opera has added a free, built-in VPN service to its mobile browser for Android users in version 51, which launched Wednesday. This means you won't need to sign in, download additional apps or pay extra for protection while browsing public Wi-Fi. Opera says this gives you even more control over your online privacy.

The built-in VPN creates a private, encrypted connection between your phone and the server with a 256-bit encryption algorithm. The encryption hides your physical location, and because you don't have to log in, the VPN server doesn't retain any activity data.

Using Opera's built-in VPN can also protect you from third parties stealing your data.

"The fact is that users are exposed when they connect to public Wi-Fi without a VPN," Opera's Peter Wallman said in a statement. "By enabling Opera's browser VPN service, users make it very difficult for third parties to steal pieces of their information and can avoid being tracked. Users no longer need to question if or how they can protect their personal information in these situations."
