- Opera integrates VPN directly in its Android browser.
- The feature is currently in beta testing.
- The option will enable users to browse the web more securely.
Opera shut down its standalone VPN app last year but it has announced plans of reviving the privacy-centric feature for its Android browser. The company announced that it is working on integrating the feature in the Opera for Android browser and has just started testing it. Beta users of the app will be the first ones who get to use the new free feature that will come built-in into the browser. Those who have beta access to the feature can enable it by enabling it from the ‘Settings’ option of the browser. The company explains how the feature works in a blog post. Once VPN is enabled, the feature replaces the user’s IP address with a virtual one that makes it difficult for websites to keep track of user’s location, identify the device being used and target ads.
