Opera VPN For Android And iOS To Be Shut Down By April 30

Back in 2016, Opera  became the first major browser developer to fully embrace virtual private networking when it introduced its own VPN app Android and iOS. The VPN service offers users a secure browsing experience, ability to change IP to a few geographic locations, an ad blocker, a basic network analysis tool that alerts users about risky Wi-Fi hotspots, and encrypted communications.


Opera VPN also comes in its desktop browser as a built-in VPN service. After recently disabling the option for users to select region, the company has announced that it will be shutting down the service for both Android and iOS device. This is coming after the Norwegian tech firm shut down its Opera Max data savings app which was later acquired by Samsung and renamed as Samsung Max.

Opera via a statement in its official website revealed that all Opera Gold users will have the option to redeem a free 1-year subscription to SurfEasy Ultra VPN so that they can enjoy  unlimited usage on up to five devices and access to 28 regions.

It all said that all Opera Gold users will be able to migrate within the latest version of the Opera VPN iOS app. It is offering an 80% discount on SurfEasy Total VPN for those who can redeem it through the latest version of the Opera VPN iOS and Android apps.
