How to get a Free VPN using an Opera Browser

Fellow Jamaicans who work online and also snoop around on the Darknet. Need a Free VPN (Virtual Private Network) to log on to a website service as an American or one of five (5) other Nationalities on your Laptop?

Then look no further than the Opera Browser, which now comes with a free built-in VPN as of Tuesday September 20th 2016 as announced in the article “Opera launches desktop version of its free unlimited VPN”, published September 20, 2016 by Aloysius Low, CNET News.

The Opera Browser, which is powered by Opera subsidiary SurfEasy, uses a 256-bit AES encrypted connection. It's a follow-on of the previous announcement of a Free VPN on the smartphone version of the Opera Browser iOS and Android as noted in the article “3 reasons you should install Opera VPN for iOS right now”, published May 10, 2016 by Rick Broida, CNET News

You can chose from one of five (5) locations to login:

1.      Canada
2.      Germany
3.      Netherlands
4.      Singapore
5.      United States

The Opera VPN doesn't log your browsing history and can even choose a VPN that's right for you. You can stream HD video, but that depends on your choice of VPN; best to leave that to the video pirates as noted in my blog article entitled “How to find Free TV online and stream via Wi-Fi to any smartphone”.

The Browser also supports the following features:

1.      Chromecast support
2.      Automatic battery saving for unplugged laptops
3.      Support for RSS feeds with the newsreader feature

To activate do the following:

1.      Go to Settings
2.      Check Enable VPN in the Privacy and Security Section
3.      Select options using the button in the browser address field

For the more industrious among us in Jamaica, this is a godsend; we now have a Free VPN that we can use for do everything from Watch Netflix to work online as explained in my blog article entitled “How Jamaicans can make money online using Free VPN”.

Finally, VPN's won't cost anything, as online work will flourish in Jamaica!
