Opera Bakes Free, Unlimited VPN Directly Into Desktop Browser

Something tells me that a free VPN can’t possibly be good, particularly in regard to privacy.

The launch is the result of Opera’s acquisition of North American VPN company SurfEasy last March. The two companies kinda integrated back in September with version 32 of the Opera browser, but users were prompted to install the SurfEasy extension. It’s also worth noting here that other third-party providers, such as perennial favorite TunnelBear, have long provided VPN add-ons for Opera. But by making it a default feature, Opera goes some way toward making privacy a core facet of the browser.
