Opera is a free resource, I will not recommend you to use free stuff for online security purpose. You should go with paid VPNs such as ExpressVPN, NordVPN or Surfshark. In these VPNs, Surfshark would be better for you as its pricing plans because it offers a whopping 85% discount on its 24 months plan. You will have to pay only $1.99 per month. For more details of this VPN, read here.

NordVPN is the way. I sometimes use AirVPN based out of Italy as well

I am in China now and using ExpressVPN. It's been incredibly hit or miss recently.

NordVPN to HK and Taiwanese servers worked for me on a Shanghai layover.
NordVPN on Linux and Android OS's are best IMHO.

When was this? I just recently read on another China forum that NordVPN has been unusable for the last month or so (since the 70th anniversary of the PRC). ExpressVPN on my laptop has been super flaky and pretty much unusable on my android phone. It's beyond irritating.

As an emergency fallback I can use my unlimited 2G (yuck) data on my cell for things like checking GMail, using Google, etc.
