Pour one out for Olaf. No, not the charming snowman from Disney’s Frozen, the mascot for Opera’s free VPN app. Opera has announced that the warmhearted Viking will be retiring at the end of April, taking the free VPN app for iOS and Android with him.
When Opera VPN’s mobile app launched in 2016, it brought a refreshingly free, unlimited VPN browser to mobile phones and tablets. Mimicking many of the features found in its desktop browser, the app let you select between a number of countries and included a built-in ad blocker. Shortly after its launch, the company launched a paid Opera VPN Gold service on iOS that boosted the speed, doubled the regions, and added dedicated customer support for $30 a year.
