I am running WinXp. I removed Opera using "Add and Remove Programs" Then I reloaded it, using the link you used. Then I used "Settings, privacy & security" No VPN there! As a matter of fact, this was there: Want even more privacy? Enhance your online experience and enjoy superior privacy, security, and freedom, even on public Wi-Fi. Learn more about Surfeasy VPN.

Today I installed the Android version on my Nexus 6, messed around, looked for a place to type a URL and realized (?) that Opera VPN is just that, a VPN and not a browser. Went to standard Android Chrome and sure enough my IP changed to xxx.xxx.xxx.225 while on my home Wi-Fi. Went to Desktop Opera VPN and my IP was xxx.xxx.xxx.125 (same first 3 dotted quad as my phone), with only the last 3 numbers changed.
Next checked my IP from IE and was my usual 47.201.xxx.xxx from FiOS. So far this is simply GREAT! I guess I'll need to keep this running on the phone if I want a VPN all the time. Problems doing this? If this works so well, I'd gladly pay for a pro version/register whatever but I don't see this available yet.

Opera 36 is the last version supporting XP and Vista. And the VPN is an Opera 38+ feature. I guess that solved it! I am hoping they include Surfeasy a free VPN, in a few weeks under WinXP. Now you have to pay for it.

This is not a vpn. It is a proxy server. But if you don't really understand what a vpn is, then no problem.
NEVER use or pay for anything with your credit card over VPNS or proxies. 100% chance someone is sniffing numbers on those networks. Can anyone comment on that statement? Is this a VPN or simply a proxy?
