Opera Max was pre-loaded on some Galaxy handsets, but the data-saving VPN service discontinued last year. If you miss it, Samsung made its own version and it’s available today on the Play Store. Samsung Max comes with two key features that can be enabled individually.
1. 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 don’t want Max working for all apps, you can enable it just for the worst offenders.
2. 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.
Samsung Max will be pre-loaded on all Galaxy A and Galaxy J phones in the following countries: India, Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam. Existing phones can download it from the Play Store or Galaxy Apps.
