Most people never heard of Toronto-based SurfEasy until it was snapped up in early 2015 by browser maker Opera. Even if you’re still unfamiliar with this VPN, you might have used it: SurfEasy powers Opera’s free VPN built into its browser, as well as the free VPN apps for Android and iOS.

On top of all that free stuff, SurfEasy has its own paid VPN service separate from Opera’s free offering—according to a company rep, there’s no overlap between the two.
