How to use Opera’s free VPN on Android

How to use Opera’s free VPN on your Android Device

The Opera is one of the most used browsers in Android and iOS devices as it provides some nifty features within the app and its desktop application. One of the features that separate Opera from others was its VPN (Virtual Private Network) integrations. But Opera took its allured feature by directing its user towards SurfEasy Total VPN on subscription plans and announced to take off its VPN from the app last year. Seemingly, the subscription plan doesn’t work well for Opera and now they have decided to bring back its VPN integration in the app.

Unfortunately, for now, there is a stipulation which you have to follow in order to use VPN feature in the Opera app. The VPN mode is not yet included in the Opera and Opera Mini apps on the Google Play Store but in its place, you have to download the Beta version of the Opera app. On the contrary, Beta versions are available for both Opera and Opera Mini browsers but the VPN mode is only available in the “Opera browser beta” (not in Opera Mini browser beta) on Android devices. Beta versions are mainly launched for developers and due to continuous updates and features integration the app may crash or may be unstable. However, the Opera browser app is totally free and as easy to use as the stable Opera browser app. So, in this article, I will guide you on How to use Opera’s free VPN on your Android device, just follow these simple steps below.
