After integrating a built-in VPN in its desktop browser and rolling out a dedicated VPN app for iOS, Opera is now bringing the service to Android users. While there are several VPN services available for Android, Opera is looking to differentiate its offering by providing free unlimited access.
The VPN is powered by SurfEasy, a company Opera acquired last year. The app offers a quick way to mask your location, access content that's locked to a specific region, and stave off tracking cookies (no Reebok, I don't want to buy your CrossFit shoes).
While the service itself is free to use, you'll find ads, and Opera will share anonymized data about your mobile usage habits with third parties:
This information is made available to third parties who are interested in better understanding the mobile ecosystem and how it's evolving. It's important to understand that this is not data about what you do with your phone, but rather this is data about how a large group of people use their phones.
The app is very straightforward to use: you can either connect to your closest region, or select from Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Singapore, or the United States. There's also a Guardian service that logs details of all the threats it has blocked. As soon as you're connected to a VPN server, you'll see a key icon in the notification bar.
