Opera Is the Only Major Browser Featuring Free and Pro VPNs

Opera | June 02, 2022

Opera was the first major browser to provide a free, unlimited, no-log built-in browser VPN service six years ago. Opera is now extending its security capabilities with the new VPN Pro subscription model, a premium device-wide VPN that can also be utilized without the need to install separate software. The new VPN Pro service is now available for Android users on Opera. As a result, Opera is the only major browser that offers both a no-log, limitless free VPN for the browser and a device-wide VPN Pro solution, giving extra data security and robust online security. The VPN Pro service is already accessible in the developer version of the desktop Opera browser. Opera has been a recognized industry leader for over 25 years, giving the greatest online experience with greater privacy and security. Stefan Stjernelund, Product Director of Opera for Android said that "We know that VPN services have become an essential part of browsing, which is why we now offer both a Free and a Pro solution to our users. This makes it a unique proposal on the market." A one-of-a-kind deal that includes both free and paid VPN services: Standalone VPN programs that secure the complete device often need extra actions from the user, such as installing the software, creating an account, and integrating it with their system. In contrast, Opera's mission has always been to make online security simple and uncomplicated. As a result, VPN Pro has been integrated into Opera's Android browser. Users can surf securely with a free, no-log, limitless VPN that secures their browser, or they can use VPN Pro to cover their complete computer. The availability of both free and paid VPN services distinguishes Opera's offering on the market. "We have always focused on protecting our users' privacy with advanced built-in features aimed at keeping them safe when they surf the web. We have decided to expand that offering with a unique service that users have been asking for – both Free and Pro VPN solutions tailored to their needs. Now users can easily choose what suits them best and browse comfortably, knowing that their data is under powerful protection." Stefan Stjernelund, Product Director of Opera for Android
