How to Turn On VPN on Opera?

If you’re reading this, I assume you’re either considering switching to the Opera web browser or are already part of the club. It’s a popular choice among students, journalists, and travelers. But, if you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering how to “turn on” VPN on your Opera installation. Let’s dive in and have a look around.

Turning On VPN On Your Opera Installation

As you’ll soon discover, Opera’s VPN functionality is actually pretty easy to use. Once you’re connected, you’ll see the VPN status at the top of your screen, as well as a few useful options in the menu bar. Let’s have a quick look at how to use these features.

Connect To A VPN

If you’re new to VPNs, or just need a refresher, Opera’s VPN setup is pretty simple. All you need to do is enter your email address and password when prompted. If you want to remain anonymous and secure while browsing the web, you can activate VPN on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices as well. (And you should — it’s amazingly easy to configure and use.)

Once you’re connected, you’ll see the word “VPN” appear at the top of the screen. This is to let you know you’ve successfully connected to a VPN server. If you click on this word, you’ll open a menu with three options. The first one is “Disconnect.” Simply clicking this will disconnect you from the VPN server and return you to the regular web browser.

The next option is “Options.” Here you can configure a variety of VPN-related settings. To start, you can choose your preferred language and click on the button to toggle the “Always ask if Location Is Enabled” option. (This option will prevent websites from using your location to provide content that’s relevant to you.)

The third and final option is “Quit.” Simply click this button to exit the VPN Settings menu. You’ll be brought back to your regular web browser and can continue exploring the web anonymously as usual.

Using Your VPN While Browsing The Web

Let’s say you’re already happily connecting to the VPN server and are now visiting a website that’s asking you for your location. This is usually the case when you’re on public Wi-Fi while shopping or browsing the web for work. (If you’re worried about your personal data being tracked while online, you can rest assured that all your personal information, including your location, is always kept private by VPNs. Furthermore, most VPNs offer a free trial period, so you can test their service before committing to a paid subscription. (And you should — most companies that offer VPN services focus on user experience and the security of their users’ personal data, so you can be sure you’re in safe hands.)

If you’re the type of person who feels more comfortable using a VPN while browsing the web, you can configure your browser to automatically connect to a VPN server whenever you start using it. To do this, visit the website of your preferred VPN provider and click on the “Downloads” or “Client” button to download and install a VPN app for your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. (You can alternatively use the Opera VPN app if you’re on Android or Linux machines.)

Once you’ve installed the app, open it and click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of your screen. From here, you can select the VPN you want to use and click on the “On” button to activate it. (You can also click the gear icon to open the VPN settings if you want to edit any configuration options.)

Now when you start using your VPN to connect to the web, you’ll see the word “VPN” appear at the top of your screen whenever you visit a website that requires your location. Simply click this word to open a menu with the three options we saw before. From here you can go back to the main website you were on before connecting to the VPN, or you can continue browsing the encrypted web anonymously as usual.

There, now you know how to turn on VPN on your Opera installation. You can use these features to ensure your personal data stays private while you’re online.
