Opera has released its free VPN app for Android. The app was previously already available for iOS but is now also available in Google’s Play Store. While the app is free, users provide data to Opera in return.

Therefore the VPN is mainly suitable for regular users that quickly want to use a public Wifi network and wants to prevent eavesdropping by that Wifi point. The encrypted connection is good for that but really anonymous browsing is not possible through Opera’s VPN.

For which it is a good solution unless you have a system wide VPN solution in place on your device. Considering the logging of location and visited sites it is not optimal, but still better than nothing when connected to a public wi-fi.

I often use vpn service like Hola or Betternet 'cause they are free. Usually, load them on their website . Very convenient and safe. I will check this new opera vpn app.

You can get five VPN servers for free at FreeVPN.Ninja. Or you can get six VPN servers at VPNBook. Both VPN services have a zero-logging policy. You can use both services with either PPTP (an old, insecure, but well-supported protocol) or OpenVPN (a newer, more secure protocol that requires OpenVPN client software to be installed).

IMHO, both beat the hell out of a VPN service that logs the heck out of everything you do. Also, both services can be used for free. No registration is required, which allows for truly anonymous web browsing.

As I’m sure many of you know, I’m a free (as in freedom) software nut, so being able to use something like OpenVPN is a huge plus for me. The last thing I want is to have to rely on proprietary software to encrypt and route my communications.

I am from Romania, and when i want to see videos from Sky Sports F1, they gave me “You are not authorized to see from your location”. With this Opera free vpn, i could not pass that, even if i change every location from menu. But, thanks to SaraLake, i install Hola, i select UK, and voila, it works. All this, on my mobil phone. Thanks a lot.
