Olaf, the turbulent Viking, will be able to put away his horned helmet. Opera has decided to permanently unplug its VPN for iOS and Android from April 30. It’s a shame because this service, launched in 2016 and of which Olaf was the mascot, had a free formula rather powerful, easy to use, with adblocker and – above all – unlimited in the volume of data exchanged. In his communicated , the publisher gives no definite reason for this hasty beer setting. It is likely that the company now prefers to pay its users, which is understandable.
Good prince, Opera still offers them a special offer. Users of the free version are invited to migrate to the SurfEasy Total VPN offer while benefiting from an 80% discount on the regular rate ($ 4.99 per month). Users of the Opera Gold paid offer, for their part, will be able to migrate to the SurfEasy Ultra VPN offer ($ 11.99 per month) and benefit from a one-year free subscription. In terms of quality of service, it should not change anything because Opera VPN is actually running on the servers of SurfEasy, a Canadian supplier that Opera bought in March 2015.
Users who are tempted by this proposal are encouraged to contact Opera VPN Technical Support to initiate the migration. Those who want to continue spending nothing will always be able to turn to the free SurfEasy offer. However, it does not include a blocker ads and is limited to 500 MB / month.
