If you can remember, Opera VPN for Android was launched May 2016 and it has been of great help since the VPN comes for free. Some months ago the Opera Max VPN was discontinued and later emerged Samsung Max VPN; according to sources, the VPN as sold to Samsung and renamed.
Opera VPN is still on Google Playstore anyways, but it is expected the service to be discontinued by 30th April. Now you will have to use SurfEasy VPN by Opera which comes with 80% discount for Opera VPN users. Opera VPN has different servers/regions you can select from such as Canada, USA, Germany, Singapore, Netherlands. Below is What Opera VPN disclosed as regards to this development.
We’re discontinuing the Opera VPN app for iOS and Android on April 30, 2018. But don’t worry. We’re helping to make sure your privacy is still looked after.
Now the question everyone is asking is why was Opera VPN shutdown just less than 2 years after launch. Well, the company didn’t give reasons for the shutdown. But it was revealed that it was a free service and hasn’t brought any profit thus they intend to focus more on their web browser. Just what everybody thought I guess.
What more can we say? Goodbye Opera VPN
