Smartphone users can rest assured of sites that take advantage of the device’s power to mine bitcoins. Opera has released an update for Opera Mini and Mobile that blocks scripts that act without the consent of the user.
In recent times, several websites have begun to include scripts that take advantage of the power of the smartphone or PC to mine crypto-coins like bitcoin. In the case of smartphones, these scripts can cause device slowdown and consume his battery, causing a lot of inconvenience for users.
Anyone bothering with this can now use Opera Mini or Mobile. The new version of the browser has a script blocker that works more or less like the feature included in the desktop version of Opera earlier this month. When accessing a site that tries to take advantage of the power of the device, Opera simply blocks this script.
Novelty has been included in all versions of Opera for both Android and iOS. You must enable the browser’s native ad blocker to use the feature.
