Today, we have started testing our new built-in browser VPN, or virtual private network, feature in our Opera for Android browser

Even though Opera is a Chinese-owned browser, they now want to add a VPN. Wonder how that'll turn outfor their users in China that wants to access Google. But from the pictures released, it seems like they won't add that many locations.

Would you really trust a VPN from a Chinese owned free browser?

Just get PIA, it's not that expensive and has no China on it

Yes but free means nothing tied to a purchase method and shared public IPs.

I'm no VPN expert, but since PIA is based in the US, doesn't that make it a part of the so-called "14 Eyes". Even with the claim of no logging, US-based VPNs have been shown to retain identifiable information after government intervention in several cases. Although I do see that PIA has successfully defended itself in court at least once.

cool, is this thing can help me to download app and game to phone regardless to my country? some app are not availible in CHplay due to the location of the downloader, so from time to time, i use third-party website like APKpure,APKnite or allapkfree to download as they can fake the ID.

Yeah you could use it for that, I'd be hesitant to use if for a long period of time. In the end it's all going back to Opera and the Chinese Government, it won't be anonymous.
