Opera’s Free Inbuilt VPN Rolls Out For Everyone Today

Windows/Mac/Linux: A few months ago, Opera launched its own free, built-in VPN, but you could only get it if you manually enabled it in the dev version of the browser. Now, it’s available for everyone in the stable version of Opera.

If you want to use Opera’s VPN, you’ll still need to enable it in the settings, but everyone should have the option available, no matter which version of Opera you use. To turn it on, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings (“Preferences” on Mac).
  2. Click “Privacy & Security”.
  3. Enable the VPN.

After that, an icon labelled “VPN” will show up in the browser to the left of the address field. Here, you can pick what location you want to appear from, or temporarily turn off the VPN when you need to.
