Add me to the list of people irritated that VPN has stopped working. I'm not going to make the effort to use an older version of the browser, nor am I going to do anything more than clear browsing data and switch off of optimal location. There have been a growing number of complaints about this not working with new releases for months and at this time you might as well kill it.
The server was down last night due to a huge amount of interest from some countries. It's up again now.
today, May 22nd, I'm still encountering probles connecting VPN. Keeps hanging in orange button, no VPN available it seems.
Same here on May 25th 2017. It hangs and wont even let me browse the 'net.
