- Opera is now offering an advanced security measure that prevents annoying pop-up boxes on its mobile Web browser.
- The new feature is available via the all-new ad-blocking settings for Android users.
- The feature is not available for iOS yet but may become available soon.
Even if you enable the setting, the cookies are not blocked, and they come through as usual. Cookies can be blocked individually on some websites via the settings. It is unknown how the GDPR will react to the browser’s new feature as it was put in to place after a number of privacy breaches. It is automatically assumed that you are consenting to cookies from various websites by enabling the new feature on Opera, and you are simply disabling the notifications.
Aside from the new feature to block the dialog boxes, there’s a ton more on offer in the latest version of the browser. Home screen shortcuts are finally available if you use Android 7.1 or later and there is a text size adjustment option as well which is excluded from the text wrap feature.
