Opera Buys a VPN Service to Help Protect User Privacy

Norwegian browser developer Opera Software has bought virtual private network service SurfEasy to help its users protect their privacy when accessing the Web from smartphones, tablets and computers. The acquisition of the Canadian company also appears to be the latest in the company’s strategy to expand into other products beyond the browser.

SurfEasy offers applications to encrypt Internet traffic on Windows, Macintosh, iOS and Android devices as well as a password-protected USB plug-in that lets users browse securely from any computer or network, without leaving a trace.
