Opera’s tenderness for virtual private networks isn’t limited to the desktop only. Opera is releasing a free VPN app for iOS that should give you more control over how you surf the internet. It’s helpful for usual VPN tasks like avoiding corporate site blocks and regional content restrictions but Opera sees it as particularly handy for the privacy-conscious — it cast aside advertisers’ tracking cookies and makes you that much more anonymous. You can only pick from one of five simulated locations for the VPN (Germany, the Netherlands, Singapore, the UK and the US), but hey, it’s the first free VPN app for iOS from a well-known tech company. Right now, just having that option is a big deal. Opera is forcing other browser makers to think ahead of privacy. If you are excited jump into our comments box.
