VPN or Virtual Private Network is one of those things that we don’t need for daily purpose but you must have on your computer. It’s not only for the big organization but any individual person needs it on his computer to tackle security threats, privacy concern and dodge content restriction. Here Opera comes forward to provide free unlimited VPN service with its built-in feature in its new development version. Free VPN Service From Opera Browser is really great initiative so that everyone can cover up their privacy and be safe from all those internet hazards.
But before that let me explain to you what is VPN and why you need to use VPN on public Wifi. VPN mean Virtual Private Network. VPN create a private network in public network by encrypting the traffic and tunneling protocols. Which makes it possible to pass your web traffic via another IP address making you anonymous. The middle man or the ISP ( Internet Service Provider) only can check that you are connected to VPN but they are not able to check what are you doing on the internet. This makes it possible to access those content which is not inaccessible from your geographic location. Indeed, VPN is a great way to be anonymous and keep your privacy.
Normally you can get VPN service by installing a software on your computer but these are either paid or free. Free one comes with so limited data access or trail period. For paid one you need to purchase a subscription which is normally unlimited data access. But now you can get free unlimited VPN service from Opera Browser through its built-in feature.
