The new feature, known as privacy mode, promises to make devices even more secure when they connect to the internet. According to Opera, this is based on their S Secure feature which they developed for Samsung's two device-- the Galaxy J5 Prime and J7 Prime. This helped filter ad trackers as well as any other risks that may infiltrate an individual's privacy.
With Opera Max's new feature, however, things have been taken a notch higher. The feature shows more information per app. This is all because Opera Max makes use of a database called 'EasyPrivacy filter list' which tracks services. Thanks to this, device users are able to determine which applications pose more threat to the user.
Because Opera Max is a VPN, it can be used on public WiFi networks that also intercepts user data. While it can be compared to Google's WiFi Assistant feature, Opera Max functions on any network. It also provides more detailed information for every app.
