Free VPN on iPhone thanks to Opera
Opera Internet browser in its latest update has launched a built-in VPN functionality within the browser. It is completely free to download, activate and use. However, despite the benefits of having a free VPN, you need to know the limitations that we have:
- we will be able to use it only when we are inside the application Opera’s. Connection cannot be activated outside the app.
- With regard to connection locations, at the moment, We cannot specifically select the country or regionBecause it will only let us choose the continent.
Despite these two main limitations, Opera VPN is very easy to set up and the process is automated. We do not need to touch the settings and parameters of the iPhone, as everything is done from within the application itself. In this case, the first thing we need to do is download the Opera application from the App Store. Once downloaded and installed, we have to open it. If it is the first time that we are going to use Opera, the browser will show us a notification at the bottom of the screen telling us that we have a free VPN connection service available. here we have to Click on the Go to Settings button.
While we are at this section, the first thing that we are going to see is that the VPN connection is neither active nor working. So, we must choose the location. To do this, we have to click on the box that says Location. The list of locations, as we mentioned at the beginning, is limited if we take into account the exhaustive and detailed list that other services can offer. However, we must remember that this is a completely free VPN, so we will be able to choose between the European, American and Asian continents. Besides, there is an option called optimalWith which we can automatically connect to the fastest server, in order to have the highest possible internet connection speed at all times.
Once we have selected the location, we have to go back to the previous section and at the bottom of the screen, we will see the Connect button. If we click on it, the iPhone will show us a notification asking for permission to set up the VPN connection profile. If we click on the Allow button, the profile will be installed on our phone and soon after that, the VPN icon will appear at the top right of the screen.
As an additional point, we can check that the VPN profile has been set up correctly on the iPhone. for this we will go Settings > General > VPN and Device Management, In this category we will see the connection profiles that we have set up. As a detail, these settings clearly indicate to us that we can enjoy this connection only when we are within the Opera browser.
