Opera launches beta version of VPN Pro, a device-wide VPN in Opera Browser for Android

Oslo, Norway, April 5, 2022 – Five years ago, Opera [NASDAQ: OPRA] became the first major browser to offer a free VPN service built-in to the browser. Today, Opera expands this with the new VPN Pro subscription service, a premium device-wide VPN that can be used without the need to install any new app. The VPN Pro service offers Opera users additional security and privacy for their entire Android device.  

For more than 25 years, Opera has been a trusted industry leader in providing the best online experience with enhanced privacy and security. Today, Opera offers its users advanced privacy features like a free browser VPN, ad-blocker, and online tracking protection.  

Protect your entire Android device with Opera VPN Pro 

Standalone VPN applications require users to take additional steps to install the app, register an account, and so on. But Opera’s goal has always been to keep online security simple & easy. With Opera VPN Pro, existing Opera users can easily subscribe using their Opera sync accounts, without the need to download another app or create another account. Everything is integrated, as it should be. VPN Pro provides improved security to the entire device and can protect up to 6 different Android devices within one subscription. User data stays safer thanks to a wall of next-generation encryption, no matter what application is used.

Just like Opera’s free VPN, VPN Pro is a no-log service. It also offers access to 3000+ private network servers in over 30 virtual locations around the world, allowing users to stream videos, download files and browse the web securely and safely with a speedy VPN connection and unlimited bandwidth for their Android devices. There is no need to sacrifice speed for better security, since VPN Pro gives access to high-speed servers, so users can browse faster than ever. Additionally, users can run in data-saving mode alongside VPN Pro, to ensure they never go overboard on their data. The early bird beta pricing options vary from $1.99 to $2.99 per month (depending on the duration of the subscription) of VPN protection, making Opera VPN Pro one of the safest and competitively priced solutions on the market.

Privacy protection is among users’ top priorities

At home and on public Wi-Fi, websites and ads try to identify users and monitor their online activity. According to an Opera Brand Survey conducted in December 2021, better privacy protection is increasing its importance as a browser feature for mobile internet users as a result of the rising concerns around security. For example, almost half of the respondents ranked privacy protection as one of the three most important features of the browser, and roughly every fourth of the respondents has a subscription for a VPN service. 

Stefan Stjernelund, Product Manager Opera for Android shares: “We at Opera have always been focusing on ensuring users’ privacy by constantly introducing free built-in advanced features aimed at protecting users when they are surfing the web. Recently, we were spotting the increasing interest in trusted entire-device protection based on our users’ requests. That’s why launching a trusted VPN Pro solution was a logical further step for Opera.” 

Enjoy trusted device-wide protection with VPN Pro 

VPN Pro can be used on Android 6.0 and higher, by installing Opera for Android Beta, version 68.2. To enhance device security and safety, users can subscribe to Opera VPN Pro directly inside Opera Browser on Android (beta), following 5 simple steps: download the latest version of Opera for Android beta; upgrade to VPN Pro in the menu; choose the type of subscription; follow the payment steps through Google Play Store; enjoy a seamless and protected connection to the web! 

If a user ever needs any help with the service, Opera’s team of industry-leading experts are always available to assist. Support can be easily reached through the Help Center or Chat & Email support, both available here.

VPN Pro is currently available for users in the majority of the markets across the globe. There is a 7-day free trial period and a 30-day money-back guarantee. The early bird beta pricing options are $2.99 for one month and $1.99 per month with 3-months subscription for VPN protection.
