Does FREEDOME work with Chrome's Lite mode or with Opera Mini?
Google Chrome's Lite mode (previously known as Data Saver) compresses web pages in order to make them load faster and to create less data traffic. Opera Mini works in a similar fashion. This prevents FREEDOME's Browsing Protection and Tracking Protection from working because the compression prevents FREEDOME from checking the traffic.
Although Browsing Protection and Tracking Protection won't work with Chrome's Lite mode (or Data Saver) turned on, or with Opera Mini, FREEDOME will still secure the traffic from these browsers by encrypting it and sending it through the virtual location you've selected to use.
Chrome's Lite mode (or Data Saver) can be turned off from the Chrome settings after which the Browsing Protection and Tracking Protection features will resume working. The exact name of the setting depends on the operating system version and device platform. The relevant setting can be found in Chrome's setting menu.
Unfortunately, this can't be configured on Opera Mini.
