The Norway Opera Company has provided the new development which will suit for certain the PC users for whom safety is extremely important. An innovation is the built-in free VPN service. This function allows not only keeping safety by coding the data, but also allows to visit Internet resources which are forbidden at the territory of our country
What is VPN service?
Why don’t the websites know of user’s location while using VPN? The regular browser establishes a connection between the websites, showing where there is now the owner of PC. When using VPN the special service contacts websites therefore the present location of the person remains unknown. Instead of your location the websites obtain data on where there is any Opera service which is scattered worldwide: USA, Netherlands, Canada, Singapore and Germany.
Developers of the advanced browser claim that they have solved two main difficulties of users in using the private virtual network, namely:
- The user doesn’t need to deal with connection option because everything occurs automatically independently;
- The network is absolutely free, and doesn’t require monthly prolongation.
Statistically in autumn of last year, only 4% of all PC users used the Opera browser, but the innovation, most likely, will return to this browser its former popularity.
However if you don’t want to install the Opera browser, and don’t trust free VPN at all, but still have a need for this service, then it is possible to offer a paid subscription. The best VPN services can be found on AntaNET website – there you able to find the main information about them and the cost of a paid subscription.
In the case of enhancement of browser the developers were guided by a thought of the personal data at Internet protection. It is especially urgent for those companies which success depends on the security of their information. Also data security is important for people who often make money transfers by the Internet during remote working. Of course, VPN will be irreplaceable for those who like to be connected to public Wi-Fi outdoors too. Safety in this case is guaranteed by complete privacy and this is excluded for third parties access to personal data of the user.
For whom will the built-in VPN service be most useful?
The new browser is urgent for those people who need to bypass blocking for access to forbidden websites. At this stage only 10% of people regularly use means in order to bypass blocking. In addition to VPN the various plugins, “Turbo” mode and anonymizers can be added to such means. Many of them are presented as a built-in function in browsers, but requiring separate start. But they have another bypass technique. For example, the “Turbo” mode allows bypassing of blocking only if the website doesn’t use HTTPS enciphering. When using all these means it will be possible to hide the visit of the user from website administration, but not from the provider. The provider can understand by traffic was the website with blocking visited by a user or not. At the present moment the bypass of blocking isn’t regulated by the law in any way, not stopped and not pursued, but it isn’t excluded that it is possible in near future. Using of VPN “deceives” both websites and provider as the visit of blocked resources isn’t represented anywhere.
What do we have in come-off?
Summing up the results, one can be said – the updated Opera browser thanks to the built-in VPN technology has such advantages:
- Bypassing of blocked Internet resources which won’t be noticed by provider;
- Safe using of Wi-Fi in public places;
- Free and automatic using of VPN.
