VPN is a heartbreaking feature if you use the Internet. It makes everything just a little bit more secure. Still, you often have to pay for that service, but that’s not necessary with Opera. There, service is completely free on the iPhone.
The Internet can sometimes be quite a wild west of companies that want to collect data from you. The biggest advantage for those companies and websites is that they can use that data to sell ads. That comes at the cost of your privacy, though. Opera offers the solution.
Free VPN on your iPhone
Unfortunately, not all companies are as transparent about what they do with your data. So you have no visibility into it. Still, there is a way to counter this: a VPN. This makes it harder to track you. But, it doesn’t make you completely anonymous.
That has everything to do with the VPN provider. It obviously should not keep your data. Opera, for example, doesn’t do that. It is a no-log service that does not collect information such as browser history or original network address.
But the VPN is not the only advantage to the Opera browser on your iPhone. It also has another useful feature. An adblocker is built into the browser. This prevents you from seeing unwanted ads. So handy if you’re on YouTube or accessing an intrusive site.
Opera has more interesting features
Opera also has a fine feature on the iPhone for crypto owners. It has so-called Cryptojacking Protection. It ensures that users are safe from cyber criminals targeting crypto owners via the browser.
What is VPN?
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It is a secure connection between your device and the Internet that protects your privacy and hides your online activities from third parties. This is done by encrypting your data and hiding your IP address.
Want to use Opera’s free VPN for yourself? To do so, you need to download the app from the App Store. For this, you need iOS or iPadOS 12 or higher on your iPhone or iPad. You may not be able to use the service right away yet, as the new feature will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
