Browsing securely is made easy with Opera and it is now coming to iOS as well. iPad and iPhone users can now enjoy secured and free-from-ads virtual private network through the "Opera VPN" launched last Monday.

According to Mashable, restrictions will cease to exist once the Opera VPN operates in your gadget. This Opera app allows you to spoof IP address, fading all the signs that point to your correct location. Users can pick one of five available countries: Singapore, Netherlands, US, Canada and Germany.

Websites and other service providers such as Netflix are working aggressively to intensify its protection against the Opera. Less accessibility due to geographical information proved to be a big problem for Netflix users all over the world. Opera is yet to crack down the great wall of Netflix.

With Opera VPN easily gaining popularity, Tech2 reported that SurfEasy president wrote on his blog that "new Opera VPN for iOS is a completely free solution that offers many of the features of our SurfEasy application: data encryption, online freedom, five server regions to choose from, online anonymity, ease of use, and so on." Blocking advertisement is an alluring concept especially when it can save on mobile data use.

In the Macworld article, the need for the Opera VPN needs no precedent as there should be no access limitation on the information on the Internet. Students, employees and everyday users alike will be given the option to surf the net as they please without worrying about being tracked.

With a simple download of an application, users can enjoy the perks automatically. You can also change exit servers location as you prefer by tapping on the lightning icon and pick the other location available.

While it all looks good on paper, some tech critics are scrunching up their nose. They warn users to read the Opera VPN privacy policy thoroughly just to ensure that there are no backdoors aside from compiled data usage collection Opera claims to mine.
