New Opera App Offers Free, Unlimited VPN For iOS Users
For iPhone users and the alike, Opera Software has a nice treat for them. The company is said to be offering not only unlimited, but free VPN specifically for iOS. It arrived as an app called Opera VPN, which is now available for both iPads and iPhones.
According to Tech Times, the said app came shortly after (approximately three weeks) the company released the same version on its web browser. It reportedly has a built-in ad blocking feature, both for the mobile and desktop software.
It holds true, though, that iOS users can get several third-party VPNs in a blink of an eye, most of these apps require payments as soon as unlimited access is opted in. However, the Opera VPN for iOS comes with a free and unlimited VPN.
With Opera's new app, users can easily access contents that are geo-restricted and even bypass firewalls. They can even remove cookies that have ad-tracking features while also blocking ads. In order for such capabilities to work (they are disabled by default), iOS users have to manually enable it in the Settings menu.
The Verge, on the other hand, notes that Opera is currently marketing the app as a tool specifically made for workplaces and campuses. The company stresses out that these are the common places where Wi-Fi connection provided have limited access to video streaming websites and social media platforms.
For users to access geo-restricted contents, they simply have to utilize Opera VPN, as it automatically reroutes the Internet connection via another country, hence the immediate access.
It is also worth noting that the app came from SurfEasy, a U.S.-based VPN service provider. Although they do offer such applications to both Android and iOS, there is still a subscription fee once the trial period ends.
Basically, Opera VPN creates a secure path between the users and SurfEasy's VPN servers. As a result, sites will be having a hard time tracking the users. While the application is free, it is likely to serve ads in the months to come.
