Opera started off the year with adding Cryptojacking protection to its desktop browser, and now follows suit with its mobile browser as well. Of course "cryptojacking" refers to a cryptocurrency mining program being run on your desktop or mobile hardware without your knowledge, which can consume plenty of power without your awareness. "Cryptojacking" in no way refers to that "Tails from the Krypt," parody on pr0nhub. Of course the tech is inside Opera's ad blocker. Nothing like working for free! w00t!!

Check out the video.

The new anti-cryptocurrency mining feature is activated by default when enabling the ad blocker on Opera Mini and Opera for Android. The ad blocker can be enable in “Settings”, and it will automatically detect and stop the mining scripts written into the coding of a webpage.
