Opera had a couple of tumultuous years behind it, but it looks like the Norwegian browser maker (now in the hands of a Chinese consortium) is finding its stride again and refocusing its efforts on its flagship mobile and desktop browsers.

Before the sale, Opera offered a useful stand-alone and built-in VPN service.

Somehow, the built-in VPN stopped working after the acquisition.

My understanding is that this had something to do with the company being split into multiple parts, with the VPN service ending up on the wrong side of that divide.

Today, it’s officially bringing this service back as part of its Android app.

The promise of the new Opera VPN in Opera for Android 51 is that it will give you more control over your privacy and improve your online security, especially on unsecured public WiFi networks.
