Today Opera posted on its blog, that they have integrated a free VPN to its Opera browser to better online privacy. Certainly not the type of news you would have thought could ever happen but certainly its does now. With this new feature, you can now access blocked websites and protect yourself without having to pay for any VPN subscription.

As security is now becoming increasingly important in our day to day internet surfing, the SurfEasy team has recently joined the Opera family, adding its VPN solution to its product lineup. What is a VPN? Well, imagine that basic internet communication is like sending a postcard. Almost everyone can read it, the post officer, post truck driver and even your neighbor. You trust they won’t use your private information, but you can never be sure.
