This is fine, you probably don't need or want it on.

If you want to connect to known computers either static or dynamic ips.
Known, being you have exchanged PSK, public keys or certificates.
Then you don't need this. Personally I turn it off.

Opportunistic Encryption is a method where computers which do not
know of each other and are strangers, may negotiate a secure connection.

Note that this is only a very basic description.
