does opera max use encrption?

  • does Opera max use encryption like other VPN services(tunnel bear, viper, frootvpn, etc)

  • +1 to above question.

    As I'd like to use Opera Max for cell data due to the compression, but am leary for free wifi where I'd would prefer to use a VPN with encryption (like the options listed above).

  • From the FAQ:

    Does Opera Max access my private or encrypted data (HTTPS)?
    No. Opera Max does not optimize encrypted data. Any data traveling via a secure connection (HTTPS) is sent directly to >the site or service your device communicates with. Opera Max never views the contents or proxies information sent through >these connections. For more information, please review Opera's Privacy Statement.

    It seems to me that Max doesn't use encryption.

  • I would like to know the answer to this as well. The FAQ indicates that it doesn't read the https traffic to optimize it but doesn't say anything about the VPN tunnel itself being encrypted. This really needs to be the case.

  • Opera VPN is detected by WebRTC API beside IPs behind VPN so we can't talk about full encryption.
