In April of this year, Opera Software launched a Mac browser that included access to unlimited VPN through its built-in feature.

And now the company is launching a new Opera-branded app for the iPhone and iPad, which will grant access to unlimited, and free, virtual private network access. With the VPN access, iPhone and iPad users utilizing the app will be able to bypass restrictions placed on geographical locations, block ads, and even bypass firewalls. They will also be able to block ad-tracking software for good measure.

With the VPN access, users can pretend to be in a variety of locations they really aren’t, including the United States, Canada, Germany, Singapore, and the Netherlands. The app also supports English, Arabic, German, French, Portuguese, Japanese, Spanish, Russian, and Indonesian.

“With the new Opera VPN app, we help people to break down the barriers of the Web and enjoy the Internet like it should be,” said Chris Houston, president of Opera division SurfEasy.”

The Opera VPN app is set to “Off” by default. However, simply jump into the Settings section and you’ll be able to switch it on if you wish. Under that, users will find options for blocking ads and blocking trackers, which are also set to off by default.

You can find a link to download the app below, which is free.
