Opera VPN Pro Adds Device-Wide Protection on Android – PCMag


In 2019, Opera launched a free, built-in VPN for its mobile browser on Android, and today it’s expanding that with device-wide protection for a few bucks a month.

The latest beta version of Opera’s mobile browser for Android adds the option to subscribe to VPN Pro, which Opera describes as “a premium device-wide VPN that can be used without the need to install any new apps.”

Interested users will, however, have to download the Opera for Android Beta (version 68.2), as opposed to the standard release. Inside the app, they’ll have the option to upgrade to VPN Pro and select a one- or three-month subscription after a seven-day free trial. 

Opera is offering the subscription at a discounted rate while it’s in beta, charging $2.99 per month or $1.99 per month for three months. The company notes that the VPN is a no-log service; it won’t keep track of users’ activity, and allows for access to over 3,000 servers in 30 virtual locations for six devices per account.

Opera also claims it will provide unlimited bandwidth for users who want maximum speeds (though mobile carrier and ISP data bandwidth will apply), or users can run the browser in data-saving mode to avoid hitting their carrier’s data cap.

Opera’s desktop client has had a free, built-in VPN alongside ad-blocking since 2016. The company then tried its hand at standalone VPN apps for Android and iOS, but shut them down in 2018 and returned a year later with the Android beta inside its browser.
