Opera just launched its “Opera VPN” browser some days ago. It provides totally free VPN services, users can choose between five virtual locations: USA, Canada, Germany, Singapore and the Netherlands. For those who travel to China or live in China, a free VPN service from a big brand will be much more convenient! I tested its VPN speed and function in Beijing and let us see if Opera’s free VPN is worth using!

Reviews

I often use YouTube and Facebook in China. So I would consider servers with better downloading and Ping speed. I chose the Canada servers, VPN Opera does offer quality VPN service and there is no need to worry about its security!

The VPN speeds vary by regions, you can choose the appropriate server addresses to obtain the best need.
Conclusion

Opera VPN is very easy to use, with it you can directly visit YouTube, Facebook, LINE, etc. If you select the correct VPN server, you can get almost the same fast speed just like without using it. Therefore, I strongly recommend Opera VPN to those who travel or live in China.

A developer version of the browser can be downloaded here.
