Opera stable 35 with integrated VPN

  • Hi,
    I've just installed Opera stable 35 under Ubuntu 14.04.
    It seems that this version contains an integrated VPN service.
    Using http://ip4.me I get a russian IP address. Let's call it IP1.
    Let's call IP0 my personal IP address.

    I'm trying to understand the logic of the Opera behaviour according to the following observations:
    -normal window with Opera turbo: address IP1
    -normal window without Opera turbo: address IP0
    -private window with or without Opera turbo: adresse IP0

    Is there anyone who could help me to understand that behaviour ?

    Merci

  • Turbo is a web proxy. Turbo proxy servers are located multiple countries apparently including Russia. Web services that need to know your true IP address can find it in the Forwarded: or X-Forwarded-For: headers.
