Samsung Max launches to replace Opera Max, a VPN with data protection

Opera Max was pre-loaded on several Galaxy handsets, but the data-saving VPN service shut down last year. If you miss it, Samsung made its own version and its available today on the Play Store download it here.

Samsung Max has two key features that you can enable individually. First is Data Saving Mode. It can actively compress web pages and multimedia (images, videos, music) accessed by the browser or apps. It also tracks apps data usage so it will help you pinpoint data hogs. If you dont want Max working for all apps, you can enable it just for the worst offenders.

Then theres Privacy Protection Mode, for those times when all you need to connect to an unknown Wi-Fi hotspot. It encrypts the traffic, fights off trackers and provides a DNS masking service.
