Opera Max was a free VPN service that aimed to compress data before it got to your device in order to lower data usage. (you can see in the video below how Opera Max worked). Unfortunately, it is now no longer available online. Opera decided to abruptly kill off the Opera Max app and claims that it is being discontinued.
Opera Max has been delisted from the Google Play Store, and won’t be getting any new updates. Existing users can carry on using Opera Max, but only for “a period of time”.
Mobile data plans can be expensive, and you don’t get much for your money. This leaves most of us acutely aware of how much data we use when not on Wi-Fi. Opera Max offered a reprieve from the constant monitoring, compressing your mobile data, but now Opera Max is toasted.
Opera Max was launched in 2014 and has undergone some serious changes in the past years. While Opera did good by adding a privacy mode, it also started displaying ads in the application and nagged users to open the app in order to show them the aforementioned ads.
