    Run 2 VPN's at Same Time?


    Hello again, guys. I'm wondering if running 2 VPN apps at the same time is acceptable or beneficial. I'm using the Opera browser, which has its own built-in VPN, plus I also have Tunnel Bear VPN installed, but not running at same time with Opera. I reserve Tunnel Bear for other, non secured browsers. Is there any extra gain in security by running Tunnel Bear together with Opera, or is the Opera VPN sufficient by itself? Thanks for your insight....Ed

    Hi.
    I am not well-versed on VPNs (yet), as I'm just digging into them. I know Opera has an in-built VPN, but I have not tested it yet. I do know that Opera has been recently sold to a Chinese consortium, although they say it is still under the jurisdiction of Norway.

    FWIW Just doing a quick search on the sale, I see this:

    You might do some testing, there are tests at the bottom of this page:
    How to perform a VPN leak test

    There's also a detailed VPN evaluation guide here:

    I'm running WindScribe, so that's the only one I have tested. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Thaks Simrick. I must admit, I do feel a little discomfort about a Chinese consortium involved in Opera. I've also tried Yandex browser, which I liked, but it also concerned me that it's of Russian origin. I now use Comodo Dragon browser quite a bit, since it appears to have good security measures. In addition, I've installed Tunnelbear VPN, and use that when engaged in financial transactions. I'm a bit paranoid about security since there's so much bad stuff that can happen on the Web.

    I don't blame you!
