Opera has introduced a new beta version of its Android mobile browser with a built-in VPN. Even better, it is a free feature inclusion that doesn’t log user data that travels through Opera’s servers.

Opera has been making browsers for desktop and mobile devices since 1995 and, although not as popular as some, it has introduced a number of pioneering features. For example, it was the first major browser to build in Virtual Private Network (VPN) capability into a desktop browser. Now, it is the first to introduce the same feature into a mobile browser. While users often pay for VPN services, the Opera VPN service is being built in as a free tool. 

Importantly, the Opera VPN is a “no-log” service, meaning that it won’t track user data as it passes through Opera’s backend servers. The chief benefit of a VPN is that it hides a user’s IP address, helping to keep data and personally identifiable information away from prying eyes. In this instance, when activated, users will have the option of routing their web browsing activity through servers in Asia, Europe or America. 

Users can download the beta now with the feature starting to roll out across devices. It is certainly worth a look.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
