The Opera web browser now has a free Built-in VPN service


The Opera web browser now has a Built-in VPN service with 256-bit encryption, allowing you to access region-restricted content with ease and without the need for any subscription. 

Users of the browser just need to enable the option in the browser's settings menu and you can choose from a selection of virtual locations, with the browser currently offering the US, Canada, and Germany os options. Opera currently say that they will be adding more country options soon. 



Just like other VPN services the Opera browser will allow users to access region-restricted content like video streaming and access to certain social networks, though your mileage may vary if you want to get past Netflix's new Geo-blocking system. 

Update - Users will need to use the current developer version of Opera in order to use the VPN function.

That is a good idea with the built in VPN, I might give it a crack i haven't used Opera in a long time.

Problem is for me I just can't tear myself away from Chrome cause i really like the UI in Chrome.Quote

Not bad so far, just make sure to download the Developer version to get the VPN ability right now. The locations they have for VPN are the United States, Canada, and Germany at this current time. Just downloaded it to see how it is.Quote

Will it be sneaky like the HOLA plugin for chrome though? Which uses your bandwidth for p2p services. Nice idea by Opera.Quote
